The calculation and dissemination of grades to students and administrators can be a time consuming component of teaching. If a computer program is used effectively, it will not only reduce the time involved in calculation of grades, but it will also reduce the time involved in disseminating the information since the grades can be printed by the computer's line printer. If grades are disseminated periodically, it will virtually eliminate student inquiries concerning grades and increase the effectiveness of the non-teaching function of the professional. The purposes of the grade recording program described in this paper are threefold:
1. To minimize the amount of professional(teacher) time used to ealculaie student and course grades.
2. To allow the student to verify the grades recorded for each assignment.
3- To inform or update students of their course grade throughout the semester.
