This gradebook keeps track of your students' grades, attendance, class/subject performance, class rank, GPA, and more for you. Based on many teachers' feedback and my own experience juggling a multitude of classes and students, this is THE solution to making grading crunch times so much easier.
You can customize this gradebook to fit your needs. Write in your students' names and their scores and the rest is done for you. Whether you use a 100-point grading scale, a 12-point scale, a 7-point scale, a 4-point scale, or something else entirely, just write your grading scale in the grade range area and the gradebook will instantly transform to fit your needs. Keep track of assignments using a percentage- or point-based grading system; the gradebook will automate that for you, too. What's more, you can keep track of attendance, and the gradebook will color code trends in absences, lates, and excused absences so that you can pick out problems early on in the semester, quarter, or year. At least for me, this has been crucial in targeting students who encounter attendance problems before they've fallen too far behind. What's more, the gradebook will give you an overview of your entire class's performance, showing you class rank, averages on every assignment, averages in each subject area, and more.

With the Ivy Scholastic gradebook, you can keep track of up to 55 students, 7 subject areas, and 100 class sessions (much more than what is in a semester). So far, these numbers have proven more than adequate to meet the needs of the teachers who've used this product. However, if you need more, let me know and I can make updates.
Update for version 2: You can now excuse students from assignments simply by leaving cells blank! Furthermore, you can change the grading system by inputting that in place of the letter grades (e.g. "High pass, Pass, Sat, Fail" or anything else for that matter).
