One of the long-running complaints about Google Classroom that I and many others have had is about the nearly featureless gradebook. It appears that Google has heard those complaints and is taking some steps to improve the Google Classroom gradebook. The first step was taken this summer when Google added a comment bank to the Google Classroom gradebook. The second step came today in the form of an announcement of a new Google Classroom gradebook design.
The new Google Classroom gradebook will let you see all of your assignments and grades on the same screen. As you can see in the screenshot below, you’ll be able to see assignments listed across the top of a grid with fields for entering grades directly below those assignments. And you’ll be able to see all of your students’ overall course grades on the same page.

The new Google Classroom gradebook is available through a beta program. You can sign-up for the beta right here.
