Engrade »My favorite (free) online gradebook

I have messed with lots of gradebook programs, and most just leave me wanting. Most that I’ve tried are sluggish behemoths that prevent me from doing what seems natural and intuitive. I have finally fallen in love with Engrade because it is fast, reliable, and customizable (and FREE). I work in a school that uses holistic grading, so I have trained Engrade to give all its grades using our school’s agreed upon language (“Advanced”, “proficient”, etc.).

Students and parents can log in to see their grades, and I COULD publish homework assignments and a class calendar right into the interface if I wanted to.

My greatest Engrade moment was sitting in the passenger seat of a car on the way home from a surf vacation, grading papers and entering my grades on my cell phone/ PDA. The fact that it’s all web-based means that it’s available anywhere, it can’t get deleted, and all interested parties can see what they need to see.
