Data Sheet

Data sheets can be a helpful tool for teachers. Finding shortcuts to figure out your students' grades and standard deviations can be a time saver. It is also a great way to organize your grades.

The downfalls of this program is finding all the demand abbreviations. Also, the lines on the chart get pretty blurry after awhile.

The link that is added to this post is fairly easy to read. The chart shows five students and the average for their grades that were below their total averages on their assignments/assessments.

  1. Hi there,

    You want to make sure that you are really trying to make sense of what the graphs are telling you about the trends of student learning. This is something that you will need to do for your WS.

    I appreciate how you analyzed the tool... I agree that it gets challenging (for both here and Excel) that you need to find all of the functions and then know the abbreviations for that function. But I think you get better at it over time. :)
