Create a Separate Class for Each Period in Your Schedule.

Since every class does not meet every day in our six-day cycle, assignments are likely to have different due dates for some classes. To better manage your classes, I highly recommend you create a class in for each period in your schedule. Since assignments can be copied to multiple classes, you do NOT have to add the same assignment more than once. You simply need to edit the due dates. The image shows how to add an assignment to multiple classes.

Upload Rosters to ZipGrade

Why ZipGrade?

zipgradelogowhitebgZipGrade replaces the scantron machine with it’s simple and easy-use-app that is downloadable to your iPad, iPhone, or Android device. Teachers print pdf scantron forms, set a key in the app, and grade forms by photographing each form.

By creating rosters and answer keys ahead of time, I was able to scan and show students their scores before they even left the classroom. If you are using closed-item assessments, this app is a great tool.

Speak to Brandon to get the full version of the app on you iPad.
