BlazeVIEW Gradebook

BlazeVIEW offers a gradebook system for keeping track of student performance. Taking a few minutes to set up your gradebook at the front end of your course can save you a lot of time when grades come due! Additionally, once your gradebook is created, it can be copied into new course shells and edited to fit the adjusting needs of your courses. Use gradebook to track not just student performance, but class attendance, club/organization participation, etc!
