I researched different grading programs, and found Easy Grade Pro to be
highly recommended by many for the Mac. I set it up in such a way so
that it is very rubric based. Students either receive "met" "1/2 met"
or "not met" for each objective. I set up how much to weigh each
comment, and use my rubrics for grades three to five on major projects.
This saves me a LOT of time, believe it or not, as I do not have to do
any grade averaging, it is automatically done, and I print out
individual assessment sheets for each student at the end of each term
which goes into their report card. This saves me many "why didn't my
son/daughter get an "A" in art?" and lets parents know exactly what
their children are learning. It has unexpectedly given the art program
more status. I can even print out student comments on reports. I can't
say enough how much I love this program, and it cost me less than $50
dollars. I especially like how I can set up different grading scales
(I grade differently for first and second grade) - if anyone has any
questions about this program, I am happy to post more.
