  1. BlazeVIEW Gradebook

BlazeVIEW Gradebook

BlazeVIEW offers a gradebook system for keeping track of student performance. Taking a few minutes to set up your gradebook at the front end of your course can save you a lot of time when grades come due! Additionally, once your gradebook is created, it can be copied into new course shells and edited to fit the adjusting needs of your courses. Use gradebook to track not just student performance, but class attendance, club/organization participation, etc!

Below, you will find detailed guides for a Points gradebook and Weighted gradebook. Additionally, review the Gradebook Setup Wizard Planner to assist in creating your first gradebook.

Points Gradebook Instructor Guide
