Google drive was recently updated with extra tools on the go in the spreadsheets section. This has a really good impact on how we can help students identify their progress.
A simple tool that allows me to show and edit colourful versions of the tracking page.
As I enter the pass, merit or distinction value into the spreadsheet it is set to change colour.
Students can see this and it has a huge impact on their motivation and engagement. Progress is visual and due to the calculations being built in they can see their overall grade calculated as an ongoing process.
Really easy to set up
