Teachers who use a point system for grading can allow students to set goals for themselves and see what grades they can earn in class by using this Excel file. The file also allows them to instantly see their grade after receiving a score in class by inputing points into the tool. Goal setting and reflection become easy with this tool.
It has all of the formulas set up so all the student has to do is type in the score and points and the file crunches the numbers to show them their grade in the class. The file also has graphs hyperlinked to the student data, so students can see progress over time as well.
Individual tabs have been set up for schools who use trimesters or quarters. An additional tab is used to track "Employability Skills" throughout the school year as well, so students can see data for the entire year as opposed to by each part of the year.
