This is a log I created for students to calculate their own grades. I also use it to help students keep track of their completed assignments and measure their progress. The form has locations for students to attest to putting forth their best effort, turning it on time, indicate if they need extra practice or tutoring, and reflect on their learning.
This is a great tool not only for students to take responsibility for their work, but also measure their own progress and calculate their own grades at any given time. I check it periodically throughout the grade period to get feedback as well as double check my own work when entering grades.
It's especially helpful for my own documentation on student success and progress or to use in parent conferences. It can also be used to help improve instruction, catch mistakes or typos I have made in the grade book, and individualize instruction/tutoring.
This document was created in Microsoft Word to allow you to make edits that fit your grading criteria.
