Example Spreadsheet Data

Here is an example of how the data in a Grade Book Spreadsheet might look:

Grade Book

Student Name Test 1 Test 2 Assignment Average Score
John Doe 85 90 88 87.67
Jane Smith 75 80 70 75.00
Max Turner 95 100 92 95.67
Class Min 75 80 70 75.00
Class Max 95 100 92 95.67

In this spreadsheet:

  • The AVERAGE formula was used to calculate the average score for each student. For example, John Doe's average score is calculated as 85+90+88 / 3=87.67.
  • The MIN formula was used to identify the lowest score in each test and assignment. For example, the lowest score in Test 1 is 75.
  • The MAX formula was used to identify the highest score in each test and assignment. For example, the highest score in Test 2 is 100.

This structure provides a clear overview of individual student performance as well as insights into the overall class performance, with the ability to quickly identify the highest and lowest achievers in each assessment.
