This project involved the creation of an electronic gradebook designed to realistically meet the needs of classroom teachers. The computer source code was written in Pascal, a compiled language that allowed fast execution of any part of the program. The electronic gradebook called GradeS uses the graphic Desktop Intert'ace. It tracks up to 42 students per class, allowing up to 50 assignments per grading period. An unlimited number of classes can be stored on data disks. It produces four different types of whole class and individual student reports both on the screen and the printer. The project includes a report on the development of the program along with comparisons to existing gradebook programs. The total source code is included, along with annotations describing the function of each unit of the program. Finally, a training/reference manual completes the documentation.
