I hate to spend money on something like a gradebook when I can make one. This gradebook is designed to be able to take assessment grades as well as attendance. Each scholar has two boxes per day. The top is for attendance and the bottom box is for assessment scores. You can easily change the colors by clicking on the row and editing row. I like pink because we call ourselves the Pink Flamingos on my teaching team. It is a great way to get the boys on our team wearing pink. It's fun and not a mascot that you would think of for 7th and 8th graders. You can edit this how it fits you. I also have a Book # on it so I know the textbook number of each scholar. I hope that this is a great resource for you. I print it at school front and back in color before school starts and put it in my teacher binder. Enjoy.
