Grade Book for Professors offers a new approach to managing your grade books on your Android device. Instead of having a separate grade book on your phone or tablet, this app avoids the headaches of keeping two seperate gradebooks sync’ed by using one grade book in the cloud. All you need is your grade book to be on Google Spreadsheets!
[UPDATE: Now there is a free ad-supported version in the market that does everything the free version does]
- Edit student grades directly on your phone.
- No need to sync two separate grade books, since you use one primary grade book on Google Spreadsheets.
- Email a student their grades with the click of a button.
- Pin-number to protect your grade books if your phone is lost.
- NEW: Email ALL students grade report with one click
- NEW: Grade session feature and assignment view allows for quick and easy grading of a single assignment
- An Android device running Android 1.6+
- Internet connection
- Access to Google Spreadsheets
Get the App!
- Search “Grade Book” in the Android Market
- Direct Market Link (use if you’re viewing this site from your Android Phone)
Can I see an average of how students performed on an assignment?
We are adding this functionality to an update that will be released soon.
It would also be a great addition to the app to be able to delete a student from the gradebook. Can you do that?
Yes, and we're working on it for the next update.
Will future options allow you to “weight” grades? For example, tests might be worth 50% of the final grade while homework is only worth 25% of the final grade. Thanks.
We are currently working on setting up a “Final Grade Column” option. However, in the mean time, if you need this option, you could create a final grade column in your spreadsheet, and enter in a formula to calculate grade percentages. I realize this isn’t an ideal solution, but this is the temporary fix until we get this feature implemented.
Hi, Everytime I click on a student's name I am getting 'getGrades() Service Error'.
We are currently looking into this. We've narrowed it down to having something to do with blank cells in unused rows or columns. Something that seems to fix this in every instance we've encountered is to delete all extraneous rows and columns from the spreadsheet that is giving you trouble.
1. Go into Google Docs on your desktop and completely remove all empty rows and empty columns from the gradebook. NOTE: you must actually delete the entire row, merely highlighting
2. Close the program on your phone with a Task Killer program (if you don't have a Task Killer program...restarting your phone will do).
If for some reason this doesn't work for you, we would love to take a look at a copy of the Google Docs spreadsheet that is giving you problems. Email us and we'll get this sorted out for you.
(NOTE: This will also work for getnames() Service Error)
This application is not showing up in the android market - is there an alternative download link that we can use?
We don't have an alternative download link at the moment. However, we recently made some changes to the app on our end to get it to show up in the market for certain tablet devices. If you're still having issues with it not showing up in the market, please email us and we'll work with you to get this sorted out.
