Default Android for Academics - Grade Ticker

Summary:
Quote:
Simple tool for professors and teachers to keep track of point deductions as you grade papers and exams. Calculate grade as you go and save time by not doing a post grade tally."
Some motivation:
Quote:
This app is a simple tool professors can use while grading assignments/tests. The idea is simple: when you take points off a students paper, you press the associated button that corresponds to that value you took off.

For example, suppose you have a test out of 100 points. As you are going through the assignment, the student loses 3 points on a question. On the app, you press the -3 button, and the value at the top of the app will change from 100 to 97. Why is this helpful? When you are finished grading the paper, you will no longer need to go back and count every point deduction! This might not seem like a lot, but when you have 100 papers to grade, it comes in handy!

Instead of pressing 2 buttons to subtract 3, you only have to press one button. Plus, you can see all of the last buttons you pressed in case you are disrupted when grading. The layout is simple. I wasn't trying to make some CRAZY application, I wanted to make something simple that teachers/professors could use.

Furthermore, the full grade book version will allow you to sync with Google Spreadsheets, which will allow you to have your grade book right on your phone, and it will give you a detailed report. Plus, when you use the grade ticker, you will be able to submit grades right into the spreadsheet.
