Grading

Use Typing Pal to grade your students’ performance, whatever the grading system you employ.

Including Grades in Statistical Reports

  1. In the Group summary, click or tap the Edit button in the Grading section.
  2. Check the box Include grading in statistical reports.
  3. Select your grading system (letters or numbers) or customize it by adding or editing the levels.
  4. Then click or tap Save.

By default, there are five levels to the grading scale. However, more can be added by filling in the empty grade and wpm or cpm boxes.

Each student’s average and that of the group will be now displayed in your statistical reports.

Note — Students will not see their grade in their Activity log. This allows you to adjust your grading system and choose the right time to inform them of their grades.
