How does Gradebook work

Just like everything in Edpuzzle, we try to keep our Gradebook simple, powerful, and useful. We will explain more in detail the following sections:


  1. Progress calculation
  2. Total score
  3. Total time spent
  4. Turned in "Late"
  5. Student individual report
  6. Range of dates
  7. Download the progress


Progress calculation


If you assigned video-lessons with questions, you will want to see the grade that each student got in each video. That is exactly the information we show.


If an assignment still has open ended questions pending to be graded, you will see "...". Once you grade those questions, the Gradebook will automatically update that information.


Under each grade, you will see a thin line with the percentage of the video watched by that student. This will also give you more information about the level of completion of that assignment.


Total score


At the beginning each student row, you will see the "Total score". It is an average of all the grades earned by that student in that period of time.


It is important to note that if a video does not have questions, it will not be included in the "Total score" calculation.


This information is ideal if you use Edpuzzle as a formative or summative assessment tool.


Total time spent


Next to the "Total score" you will see the "Total time spent". This information shows how much time each student spent watching the videos.


This information is useful to identify the student's effort. If a student is rewatching the lesson to get a better grade, you will see a higher number. We strongly recommend pushing your students to rewatch certain parts of the video before responding to a question.


Turned in "Late"


If the video-lesson has a due date and the student completed the video "Late", you will see a red clock icon next to that grade. That grade will still count as part of the total score.


Student individual report


If you click on any students' name you will get an individual report. You will see the total score, the total time spent, and the progress for each assignment. This report is ideal if you want to have a one-on-one meeting with your students.


Range of dates


By default, you will see the video-lesson assignments from the previous 30 days. If you want to change that range of dates, click on the "Last 30 days" button and enter the dates you would like.


Download the progress


If you feel the information you see is useful and you want to include it in your school reports, you can easily download it by clicking "Export Gradebook". You will get a CSV file that you can open using Excel, Google Sheets, or even upload to your online School Gradebook.



As we mentioned, the Gradebook is simple, but really powerful. For this reason, it is important to understand each piece of information we provide and how to use it.
