I am losing my mind early this school year. It usually takes a little longer before I begin slipping.
I left my EZ grader at school. Does anyone know of a website that I can enter in the number of problems and get a grade. I had a website saved at one time, but it is on my laptop in my room. I can't even find it when I googled it.

Thanks!!!!

All you have to do on a calculator is divide the questions the kid got wrong by the total # and multiply by 100.

Thanks! I will remember that.
It is so much easier with the grader when I am working with 100+ kids.

You could make your own, too, using Brandon's method. Just write down the scores for -1, -2, etc. That's what I've done.

I have three! One at home, one at school, one in my bag so it is always with me when I am grading papers elsewhere like the bookstore or work.

so that is just 36 divided by 48. which is .75 which translates to 75%

I never use easy graders. I just use a calculator if I can't do it in my head.

this is the formula

total number correct divided by total possible.

We're required to post all of our grades on the computer using the number of problems as the points possible and the points earned. It's fractional on their papers, for example 17/18. The Edline.net calculates the percentages. The entire district does this so by the time the kids get to 2nd grade the parents are acclimated to the process.

YOu take 100, divide it by the # of questions total - and then take that number, multiply it by the number wrong and subtract that from 100

48-12=36/48=.75*100=75%. It's really that easy!
