Software to keep track of school grades.
OpenGrade is software for teachers to keep track of grades. It can put the students' grade reports on a Web server and allow the students password-protected access to them. Features include:
- A variety of reports can be created.
- Grades can be uploaded to a web server, where students can have password-protected access to them.
- If you use a set grading scale, you can have the software use it to compute letter grades automatically.
- Grades can be based on total points, or on a weighted average of scores in various categories such as exams and quizzes
- You can drop the lowest grade (or the N lowest grades) from a given category.
- Students can be dropped and later reinstated without losing all their grades.
- There is support for extra-credit categories, and for categories that don't count towards the student's grade.
- Gradebook files are password-protected with a digital watermark, so you can detect tampering.
- Gradebook files are in a plain-text format, which makes it easy to work with them using Unix utilities.
