Why the Gradebook

fee8b3296d7c656421dc097bfa20ac47_22479I got a lovely email today from Tim Wallach at Handsworth Grammar School, and I reproduce it here with permission.

 

 

 

Dear Ian (and team)

I had my head of department asking about a Y10 student whose parents would like him moved set.

In a few seconds I was able to provide hard evidence of how he has been working over the last few months by using the Gradebook.  All graded and even lined up against target.

It completely took the pressure off me and put it back onto the kid and his effort.

So thanks

Tim
