TA's Friend is a simple application for keeping track of student test grades and homework that takes the place of a typical grades spreadsheet. We designed TA's Friend specifically to make the job of being TA easier, TA's Friend replaces the typical teacher assistant's Gradebook.
To quickly add students click on the student toolbar item, and enter the new student's name. Student names can be either full format ie: Lance Morquecho or last name first ie: Morquecho, Fred. A text file list of students can be added by going to the file menu and selecting 'Import Students'.
To add assignments, click on the 'Assignment' toolbar item and enter the assignment name. Optionally you can also add the value of a perfect score or the weight of the assignment. These settings can be changed later by selecting the assignment and pressing the 'Info' toolbar item.
One of the most powerful features of TA's Friend is the ability to grade assignments quickly. To enter grades for an assignment, click on the 'Grade' toolbar item. In the Name field, start typing a name, when the desired name appears, press tab, enter the grade and press enter. If the 'alphabetized' check box is checked, the next student name automatically appears in the name field.
With respect to the bad review below:
She demanded a refund even though I explained it's out of my hands and up to apple, furthermore, she refused my help even though the solution to her problem was simple. If you are unsure there is a demo version of the software on my website. You should know, I'm not making millions off this software and as some one who has graded hundreds of exams, I know this software will speed the process. If you have any questions I'm here to help, I answer most email in minutes not hours.
