Grading, grading, and more grading! Honestly, that may be the thing I like the least about teaching. Which is odd because that is what I did the most when I played school as a child. I am not missing the irony there!
Last year, I created a CCSS aligned grade book in an attempt to simplify the process of recording and accessing grades. After using it all year, I decided to offer it as a free download for anyone else who wants to try it.
Basically each section is the same. The names run vertical and the standards across the top. I would jot down a quick note under the standard of the assignment, and record the date. Then I would record the score. Here is an example using a 1-4 scale.
As you can see on this full page image, it is perfect for an at a glance look at a standard or even how a student is doing across a few related standards.
