After posting about some of the best gradebook tools for teachers we got an email from one of our readers asking about some grading apps for iPad. We looked into our archive and found a post that we have published almost a year ago containing some great grading apps for iOS users but because thousands of apps have been created since the posting of that list we deemed it important that we do a general scan to review the new emerging grading apps. We found quite many but we only handpicked the ones mentioned below.
Just bear in mind that for us to recommend apps to teachers and educators, we first review them' see if they are ranked and read people's comments about them, try some of them when possible , and check on them online which is a process that takes time but is worth the endeavour .
Check out the list we have prepared for you and let us know what you think about it.
