Enter Assignment Scores

With TeacherPlus Gradebook, you can manually enter a score into your gradebook, select a score from your grade scale, or use Quick Entry to search for students by name and enter their scores.

Method 1: Manually Enter an Assignment Score

Manually entering assignment scores in TeacherPlus Gradebook is, in many cases, the most efficient way to enter your assignment scores. If you have your scores in order and just need to transcribe them into your gradebook, you can sort your gradebook by a column, set your enter key and turbo mode settings (in General Settings), and quickly enter grades down or across your gradebook. For more information on score settings, see Configure Score Settings.

To enter an assignment score, do the following:

  1. Click a score cell, enter that student's assignment score, and then press Enter.

    When you press Enter, the cell focus will move either down or right, depending on your score settings. You can also use the arrow keys to navigate up and down a score column or left and right between score columns.

    Enter Grade

  2. At the upper-right corner of the Gradebook Menu, click The Save & Recalculate Button.

    If Turbo Mode is turned on in your score settings, newly entered scores appear red until you recalculate. This indicates that they aren't included in averages.

Method 2: Enter an Assignment Score from the Score Table

If you prefer to select scores from your class score table, you can use the Enter Score feature.

To enter an assignment score from the score table, do the following:

  1. Right-click a score cell, and then click Enter Score.

  2. In the Scores dialog box, click the grade you want to enter for this assignment, and then click Select.

    You can also double-click the score you want to enter.

Method 3: Enter Scores Using Quick Entry

When you have many students in your class and need to grade them on various assignments, you can use Quick Entry to expedite the process of finding and grading students.

To enter scores using Quick Entry, do the following:

  1. In the Assignment Column that you want to grade, click on a score column to select that column.
  2. In the Gradebook Header, click the Search by name box, enter the first three letters of a student's last name, and then press Enter.

    The focus moves to the student's cell in the current assignment's score column.

  3. Enter the student's score in their cell, and then press Enter.

    The focus moves back to the Search by name box.

  4. Continue searching for students and entering their grades.
