I created this form for tracking and recording assignments when I taught multiple high-school level classes and had student workers. I used it as follows:
First, personalize with the class, school year, and teacher name. Then fill in the names of the students in the class, listed in the same order as they are in your computer gradebook. Save and print or copy as needed. You will need one sheet for each assignment given.
When collecting assignments, clip each stack together with the Assignment Tracking Sheet that is quickly filled out with the name of the assignment, date due, points possible, and grade category. This makes it really easy for later when you go to enter the assignment into the computer gradebook.
As soon as you or your student worker has an opportunity, go through the stack and mark in the "Turned In" column every student paper that was collected. Even if there is not time to actually grade and record the assignment right now, you now have a record of whether the assignment was ever turned in in the first place. Keep everything clipped together until there is time to grade the assignment.
As the assignment is graded, the scores can be recorded on the sheet. It is now easy to run down the list and enter the scores into the computer. And you have a paper copy backup. I just 3-hole-punched the sheets and kept them in a binder as a hard-copy gradebook.
The "Entered" blank at the top and the individual ones for each student in case of late work or something needing to be re-graded make it easy to see if everything has been updated in the computer.
There are 2 pages to this document so that if you have a large class there is room for all the students or if the class is smaller, you get 2 grade sheets/page if you copy them front and back.
This was created for grades 9-12 but could be adapted to any grade level.
