Question

Hello: Ken My school had you visit several years ago. I was wondering your thoughts about online gradebooks where parents are able to see their students' averages in each class

says:

I think they are good if they are used thoughtfully so that they fit coherently into the whole
communication system. The most important thing is that there should be no
average/grade posted for at least the first four to six weeks of each year/course. Put
another way the grade determination function should be turned off till there are enough
scores for a meaningful summary.
