Any developers out there that would like to develop a gradebook plugin for GeekLog? I use GL for my teaching (especially distance ed courses), and the only complaint that I get are from students is the lack of a gradebook. I assume that they would like to have that information right on the site: something each could login and access, rather than sending me email asking about their grades.

It would obviously have to have an instructor account, a way to add assignments (and categories and classes), a way to add and calculate grades, and a way for students to see how they're doing. (I'm probably missing something.) I would appreciate any comments on this idea. I could see this as a BIG boon for GL in education. Thanks.

Depends on how complicated it needed to be.

Do you grade on a curve? How would you do give importance to homework, tests, essays, etc...

IE:
Tests = 40%
Homework = 20%
Essays = 30%
Participation = 10%

Actually I answered my question, I have a few other projects I'm working on if you like I'll add it to my list. Shouldn't take long.

gl_gradebook --Planning Stage--Tracking of Assignment Grades, Test Grades, Essays etc.. category weighting... Over-all Grade, Further break downs so that there can be multiple periods and/or terms ie a English teacher teaching English 101 10am-11am and 12am-1pm on tuesday and 10am-11am on Thursday without getting the students mixed up or grouped togeather. Assignments will be able to span class to prevent having to enter multiple times. Multiple Subject Support...


gl_assignments
aid (Primary Key)
assignment_name
category
max_score

gl_scores
uid (Primary Key)
aid (Primary Key)
score


I'dd add more later I'm overloading this week and need to relax a bit.

Thanks. Since I am not a programmer, anything you can do would be helpful. I'm good at design, but I'm in literature for a reason...
