EZ Projects and Grading using Filemaker Database

All instructors can benefit by reducing your paperwork, improving student performance and maximizing your instructional time with a custom electronic project grading database. Put information at your fingertips to track student progress. Help improve student grades by using a standard format for both projects and rubrics.  This helps eliminate student guesswork on what are the project requirements and how will I be scored. 

This session will show how the database was created, how it solves filing problems, standardizes grade comments and reports grades to students using automated email.  The designer will discuss how the system is used to capture and distribute student project data; and more fairly grade students’ project work.  This database puts the information you need at your fingertips and in the student's email In-Box.
