Let's talk about our favorite part of school for a moment, tests.

Taking tests and assessments are easily the worst part of a student's academic journey.

Students here in South Korea begin studying for the Suneung, or more formally called the College Scholastic Ability Test (University Entrance Exam) as early as 5 years old.

Ask any elementary student what their biggest stress is and they will tell you "test-taking"—it's incredibly disheartening.

However, test-taking is a large part of academic assessment and so we must oblige.


So why do it?

Well, a benefit to tracking a student's test scores is the ability to observe academic performance over time.

This can help a teacher adjust their teaching methods and give specific support to improve learning.

However, if we can't properly track a student's grades over time, this becomes impossible.


Maybe you see where I'm going with this.


There are 1000 ways teachers can keep track of grades...

But let me show you one way, and the only way you need to track grades, using Notion.


How to track grades effectively with Notion

To make this work, there are 3 main databases:

  1. Grade Topics

  2. Grades

  3. Student List

How a grade works in Notion

A grade in Notion is pretty simple.

You create a new grade, and give it a name.

You assign a total score to the grade, then input the score.

Then you tag the student who received the grade.

That's it.

We can create one simply by pressing the New Grade button.

But what if we have many grades to enter all at once?

In my case, I have around 100 students who do a 10-minute vocabulary test every week...

That's a lot of grades to enter. *sigh*

Notion makes this easy.

Observe.

By having an Add Grade button property in the student database, we can customize the button settings, and then quickly go down our student list, adding a grade to every student.

Let me show you how this works.


How to add many grades quickly

Step 1: Create a Grade Topic

This will be used to group all of the grades together and reduce clutter.

Step 2: Adjust the Button Settings

Here we set the grade title, grade topic, and total score.

Step 3: Assign Grade to Students

Now we can go down our student list clicking the Grade Button for each student.

Step 4: Open the Grade Topic

Find the grade topic we created earlier and open it up. All our newly created grades will show here.

Step 5: Input Scores

Now it's just as easy as inputting the scores and hitting enter. This works incredibly quickly for large lists of students and just as fast as any Excel spreadsheet.

Optional: Date Modifier (Ultimate Teacher Planner)

If you have the Ultimate Teacher Planner, you can use the Date Modifier button to change the date range for which you would like to observe the student's overall grade.

Maybe you just want to see the student's grade for a specific semester?

This is how you would do it.

Final Thoughts

Overall I find this to be an incredibly efficient and effective way of tracking grades.

On top of that, you can go to the student profile and nicely see all of their grades at a glance.

This is where we can observe academic performance over time.
