  • 1. Page 1 Managing assessment data with Web Apps Regular assessment is critical in developing students’ skills and helping them to manage their own learning. End of topic or term assessments are still valuable but more consistent formative assessment has been proven to benefit students’ acquisition of skills and knowledge. Managing more assessment data can be time consuming. However, grading software enables you to manage grades more efficiently and to keep track of students’ progress and achievement. In this tutorial you will: 1) Understand how Microsoft Excel can be used to keep track of students’ grades, assignments and exams. 2) Create a cloud-based Excel spreadsheet as an e-Gradebook. Tools: Microsoft Office Web Apps; Microsoft SkyDrive ICT Skill Level Required: Educator Scenario Ken is a Geography teacher who wants a grade book that will help him manage student assessment simply and efficiently. In his grade book, the final grades will not only be automatically generated, but also weighted according to the value of the grades for a particular assignment. He wants to quickly compare different elements of students’ performance so that he can track their progress throughout the school year and quickly identify any troubling trends. Providing instant and regular feedback to students. Building a grade book in Microsoft Excel will enable Ken to allocate different values to different assignments, to filter and extract data in order to compare achievement, percentages and scores and to monitor student learning throughout the school year. Saving it in the cloud via Microsoft Office Web Apps means he can access it wherever and whenever he needs to.
