With the new school year right around the corner, this week we're highlighting six great Web-based grading platforms built by teachers, for teachers. Our picks fall into two main categories: dedicated grading tools and learning management systems (LMSes) with built-in grading tools.
For dedicated grading tools, we've included websites like ActiveGrade and JumpRope, which put data sharing and reporting at your fingertips. There's also Goalbook Toolkit, which can help teachers set tailored targets for their students and manage the diversity of needs in their classrooms.
If you're looking for an LMS that has bonus grading functionality, Engrade, Schoology, and ChalkUp all fit the bill. With all of these sites, you can make grading less tedious and more beneficial by focusing more on what you do best: teaching!
