Commercial for the Education Professional/Schools. Price $40.00
CraMS is a classroom management software. It creates either (or both) an Excel (2004, 2008, 2011) or Numbers (version 2.x)
spreadsheet with all the students. The spreadsheet created can be customized for any course and grading criteria.
You can enter 13 different graded activities plus attendance, midterm and final exams.
The grade type and ranges are also customizable. That is, you can choose the +/- or pure letter grades.
You can also select to drop the lower grade of some activities.
Once you entered the weights of the grades for each activity and the criteria you use to assign a given grade (for instance 88% is a B+) all the grades are computed automatically for you. There are safeguards to prevent errors, for instance, if the weights do not add to 100% you will be alerted and the spread sheet will not be created.
An attendance sheet is also created and it only uses the dates that you are teaching. It can be everyday, only Tuesdays, Monday/Wednesday/Friday, etc.
It also skips the holidays...
CraMS also remembers the the courses that have been created and will fill out some of the data automatically. This, however, can be overwritten.
NOTE I: This application has to be customized to your school. That is, I would need to see the page of your school where you get the roster from your classes. I don't need to see an actual page but what it looks like, so as to import all names to the spreadsheet. Once this is done, the only thing you need is to fill some fields and copy the page of your roster and press a button.
ExtrasTogether with this software you can have extras scripts. These scripts allow you to do the following; you can enter attendance or grades via voice and create a comprehensive performance website for each of your students.
NOTE II: If "you" are a school and would be interested in having this for all your teachers and as a mean to broadcast student performance, please contact me (email below).
If your school has Mac servers or a Mac lab. I can help you automate the whole process of getting grades from each of your teachers and posting them safely to the web.
NOTE III: A video will be posted here soon to show CraMS in action.
