Making the Grade was designed by Jay Klein of Colorado Springs, an English teacher. In the mid 80's, Jay saw a need for an electronic grade book system that would operate on the Apple II computers the school was using. Grade Busters came to be right after the movie, Ghostbusters, so the connection becomes obvious. It has been a good name in the multitude of grade book names. Grade Busters, on the Apple platform, has outlived hundreds of similar programs, and is still selling today, 12 years later.

Making the Grade is one of the top sellers of electronic grade books. One of their biggest selling points is the commitment to free, unlimited, lifetime product upgrades. Join the thousands of teachers nationwide who have chosen Making the Grade as their preferred electronic gradebook program.

Making the Grade can be easily interfaced to work with School Loop. Click here to open a PDF with complete instructions on how to work with School Loop and Making the Grade.

Making the Grade exports to a multitude of popular student data systems and also has a custom export feature so it will work with most systems. Here is a screen shot that shows the many options available under the Export Student Data option in the file menu.
