Flexible grading options

Teachers can use an all-points grading system or a flexible grading system that can include points, letter grades, check, check plus, and any other custom grading scheme. Teachers can use assignment type weighting, for example making Tests 30%, Homework 40%, Projects 15% and Participation 15%. Teachers can also create their own assignment types.

Powerful reports

ThinkWave Educator 3.0 includes powerful report generating capabilities. Reports are generated as professionally-formatted, ready-to-print, .pdf documents (not as .html pages found in some gradebooks.)
