Teacher Excel Markbook

This excel spreadsheet can be used to record student's grades. Using a 1-10 system you can record their marks and it will automatically average the grade. If you enter J, K or L in capitals (which is converted into a smiley face) in the effort column it will also average their effort grade. This provides formative feedback and allows progress to be monitored. This is a concept and could easily be adapted for specific use, i.e. Assessment without levels, BTEC etc.

Goal Setting and Tracking Pack for Accelerated Reader

Note: This product is designed to be used in a classroom in which the school year is divided into quarters (1st quarter - 4th quarter).

This product is a companion to Accelerated Reader program which is used in many classrooms.

This product contains:

4 Goal Setting Sheets (one for each quarter).
Goal Setting Parent Signature Sheet.
Weekly Goal Tracking Sheet.

To use this product, students set their goals for the appropriate quarter. I recommend they use their previous grade’s information to aid their decision for the first quarter. Once they’ve chosen their goals, they record them by both writing the number and coloring the graphs on the goal setting sheet.

Students also record their goals on the goal setting half sheet and take home for a parent signature.

Throughout the quarter, students check and record their progress on a weekly basis. At the end of the quarter, I distribute their original goal sheet and they 'star' those goals they met.
