The Aeries Gradebook is compatible with iPads, Chromebooks, Android Tablets, Windows 8 RT Browsers and Smart Phones.
The Gradebook allows teachers to setup all class assignments for their classes. The teacher can then enter scores received by the student for these assignments.
The program will calculate the percentage of the maximum score that the student received. This will help determine the grade the student should receive in the class. Various options are available for teachers including a Rubric Grading option. Below is an example of the Scores by Class page.
It is important that the following steps are performed in the order below for the gradebook to function properly:
