Do you have to keep your own grade book? Do you use S, N, or U? If you answered yes to these two questions, this file is for you! For years, I would sit there and enter "S-S-S..." Then I got smart and copied and pasted a column of "S"s. Then I got even smarter and did it this way... The directions are not in the file because I don't know how to do that in a spreadsheet... Here they are:
1. Fill in the information at the top. There are tabs at the bottom for each subject If you need another subject, simply copy and paste into a new tab. I believe you rename the tab by right clicking it.
2. Type your students' names in the column on the left. You can copy and paste it into the other subjects.
3. Begin entering grades. I put sticky notes on top of sets of papers with the names of students who did not get an "S". Then I change their grades, highlight the column, and change the color to black.
4. Save and you are done.
It takes me no time at all to enter grades this way. I absolutely love it!
