OpenGrade is software for teachers to keep track of grades. OpenGrade can put the students' grade reports on a Web server and allow the students password-protected access to them.

Here are some key features of "OpenGrade":
A variety of reports can be created.
Grades can be uploaded to a web server, where students can have password-protected access to them.
If you use a set grading scale, you can have the software use it to compute letter grades automatically.
Grades can be based on total points, or on a weighted average of scores in various categories such as exams and quizzes.
You can drop the lowest grade (or the N lowest grades) from a given category.
Students can be dropped and later reinstated without losing all their grades.
There is support for extra-credit categories, and for categories that don't count towards the student's grade.
Gradebook files are password-protected with a digital watermark, so you can detect tampering.
Gradebook files are in a plain-text format, which makes it easy to work with them using Unix utilities.

You might also want to check out Ggradebook and Grades, which are two other open-source programs along similar lines. There is a category for this kind of software on Open Directory.

OpenGrade is designed to cooperate with my software Spotter. By using the two pieces of software together, you can post grade reports on the web, keep track of your students' e-mail addresses, and collect certain kinds of work from them online.

What's New in This Release:
This release fixes a bug in which canceling a broadcast email didn't work.
It fixes a bug affecting selection of a student using the keyboard in the case where the student's name has changed during the term.
