Abstract

There are several elements to nursing students' course grades: quizzes, examinations, and presentations. There are several weights for the elements, which adds to the complexity of calculating grades. The accuracy and efficiency of calculating grades can be increased with the help of an appropriate computer program. Nursing faculty may have access to a variety of these computer software programs to aid them in calculating and maintaining students' course grades. These programs include spreadsheets, specific grading programs, and grading features included in online course programs. This article reviews selected computer-based grading programs and reviewers' evaluation of each program, based on the major features.
