Chrome Extension – Gradebook Split

Alice Keeler Gradebook Splitter

The Chrome Extension Gradebook Split automatically places your students digital work on the left of your screen and opens up your gradebook on the right hand side of the screen.

Side by side grading

When grading student work that is digital, the challenge can be efficiently entering feedback and scores into the gradebook. The trick to entering feedback and scores into the online gradebook is to have 2 windows side by side. Student work on the left, your gradebook on the right. I commissioned a programmer to create a Chrome extension specifically for teachers. Clicking the extension launches your gradebook in a window on the right hand side of your screen.

Go to your gradebook. Use Control L to highlight the URL. Use Control C to copy the URL.
