For many years educators have relied on points and percentages to help them determine their students' final course grades. The traditional gradebook is included in jmc's comprehensive grading solution toolbox. Teachers can create categories and assignments, set grade cutoffs according to percentages, apply weights and score student work. Let jmc do the calculation so you can focus on student learning!
