Microsoft Excel is a powerful tool for educators. This chapter is going to explore a variety of Excel skills for educators as we construct this grade book. This particular grade book is designed to be more than just text and numbers. It has the ability to color code assignment types. We can also sort students alphabetically by first and last name. It has built in functions to identify struggling students, and can be even be used to create differentiated groups by sorting by overall grade, or for a particular assignment. Another feature this grade book possesses is the ability to identify certain cells by color if we've input certain characters or if it believes you've made an error.
For example, my unit test is 30 points. If, let's say I went in and accidentally put a 31, the cell would change colors, indicating that I might have made a mistake. Also, if I have a student that was absent for a day, and I put an m in that cell, it'll make it an orange color to remind me that I need to get that test made up the next time that student's back in school. Furthermore, we're also going to create a printable version of this grade book. The printable version can be used for field trips, or any time you need a class roster on the go.
