I was reading other posts talking about giving students a number so that you can alphabetize papers more quickly and thus speed up grading. Has anyone used this for 8th graders? We have a lot of kids comming and going throughout the school year. So if i were to use this numbering system, how would i incorporate the new students? My electronic gradebook automatically sorts students by last name, so if a new kid comes in mid year with the last name somewhere in the middle it would screw up my numbering system. Any Ideas?
