Using Moodle as an electronic gradebook-- Each Moodle course shell has a gradebook that you can use to post grades. Though the gradebook is not as robust as Micrograde or Excel, it can and is used as a gradebook for many online and on campus classes. The FRC also offers small group workshops for those teachers interested in using Moodle as a gradebook. The schedule for workshops can be found in the professional development catalog. Finally, you can also make an appointment with FRC staff for help in setting up your gradebook.
Using MicroGrade & Webgrade to create an electronic gradebook-- Micrograde is a grading application designed to help you quickly set up a gradebook on your computer. Webgrade is a service that allows you to upload your Micrograde class scores and make them available to your students on the WWW.
