CONGRATULATIONS

Your purchase of GRADESCAN will make your record keeping and
grade computation much quicker and easier, giving you more time to
devote to lesson planning, preparation of new instructional
methods, counseling of students, and - who knows? - maybe even a
little relaxation.

GRADESCAN was designed with the teacher in mind. It was
developed by a former teacher, under the close guidance of his
wife, who happens to be a very busy teacher. You don't have time
to master a complicated computer program that taxes your patience
and threatens destruction of your valuable records at every turn.
You need a program that is so simple it can be used with full
confidence the very first time. That's what GRADESCAN is all
about. After using it for several weeks, you'll wonder how you
ever got along without it. It is a professional product and will
respond like commercially distributed software. Its user
interface is so sophisticated that it does not require you to
memorize arcane syntax or constantly think about the operation of
the program while you are recording or examining grades. You will
quickly discern that the low registration fee of this product
($25.00) is a delightful bargain in professionally developed
software.






NEW FEATURES IN VERSION 3.0

Version 3.0 of GRADESCAN retains all the best features of
Version 2.1. Furthermore, it is fully compatible with all the
files you have created under Version 2.1. No conversion is
necessary. A summary of the new features follows:



o Names of students can be alphabetized at the stroke of a key.

o Class averages can be listed in descending order by grade, with
the overall class average appearing at the top of the screen.
Naturally, they may also be listed alphabetically.

o The grades on any assignment can be listed in descending order,
with the class average on the assignment appearing at the top
of the screen.

o Multiple grades can be changed for any one student without
returning to the roster between each change.

o Screen prompts have been changed in numerous places for
clarity.

o Minor changes in the layout of screens and printed reports have
been introduced to eliminate ambiguities.

o The program has been made faster and more compact.


VERSION 3.2

Version 3.0 was found to have problems with computations in
several seldom-encountered situations. These problems resulted
from unpredictable results in the rounding of decimals to the tens
place. Version 3.2 corrects these problems so that computations
are now reliable.

Additionally, Version 3.2 now detects situations in which
users operating GRADESCAN from a floppy disk drive are attempting
to use the GRADESCAN'S backup procedure without first copying
COMMAND.COM to their program disk. The error is trapped and the
user is informed on how to proceed.
GETTING STARTED

Let's get one thing straight from the outset. You don't
need this USER'S GUIDE unless you literally don't know how to turn
on a computer. While we suggest you read through it quickly, you
really can go right to the program and experiment for several
minutes until you feel confident enough to insert your class
records. It's that simple! HOWEVER, just for the record, here
is how to "boot" the program (that's computer jargon for loading
the program into the memory of your computer).

o Turn on the monitor.

o Turn on the computer and let it run until it completes
its "power-on self test".

o MAKE A BACKUP COPY OF THE GRADESCAN PROGRAM DISK. DO IT
NOW. Some of the procedures set forth below will alter
or add material to the program disk. It is important
that you have at least one unaltered copy of the program
disk as a safeguard against loss.


INSTALLING GRADESCAN FOR USE ON A HARD DISK DRIVE


o Insert the GRADESCAN program disk in the floppy ("A")
drive. At the ">" prompt, type "a:install" (without the
quotation marks).

o Remove the program disk from the floppy drive and file it
away. We suggest you make a backup copy using the
DISKCOPY command from your computer's Disk Operating
System (DOS).

o Type "GRDSCN" (without the quotation marks) to begin the
program. It does not matter whether you type upper case
or lower case letters.


RUNNING GRADESCAN FROM A FLOPPY DISK DRIVE


o If you do not have a hard disk, you will have to run
GRADESCAN from the floppy drive. The program disk will
have to remain in the floppy drive throughout operation
of the program, and your class files will be written to
the program disk.

o At the prompt (">"), type "A:" (without the quotation
marks) to log on to the "A" drive.

o Once you have logged on to the "A" drive you will again
see the system prompt (">"). At the system prompt, type
the word "GRDSCN" (without the quotation marks). This
will invoke the program.

o GRADESCAN has an internal procedure which permits you to
easily back up your class data to a floppy disk
periodically. This procedure requires that you copy the
file COMMAND.COM from your DOS disk to the GRADESCAN
program disk. You must have you have two floppy drives
to use this procedure. If you have only one floppy
drive, you must use the DOS "COPY" command to
periodically back up your files.


NOW, FOR A TEST DRIVE


We have included several sample classes on the program disk.
If you're the impatient sort, this is a good time for you to try
your wings. Unfortunately, once you do, you may no longer feel a
need to read this manual. That's understandable and we'll forgive
you!

After invoking the GRDSCN command you should be at the main
menu. It has nine choices on it. Press "1" (SELECT CLASS), to
bring up a submenu with three more choices. From the submenu,
Press "2" (SELECT CLASS) and you will be given a list of several
sample classes. Select one of these by entering the number. (Go
ahead! Get it out of your system! Enter some key other than a 1,
2, or 3 so you can see what happens.) The class you selected will
be loaded into memory and you can experiment with all aspects of
the program without hurting a thing. Come to think of it, that
might be the best way to learn this program. It will take all of
about ten minutes to become thoroughly familiar with it.
Meanwhile, back to the USER'S GUIDE...


THE MAIN MENU


Now you are ready to explore GRADESCAN in more depth. After
you have entered the appropriate start-up commands at the system
prompt (C > GRDSCN), you will be presented with the GRADESCAN logo
screen. Press any key to invoke the Main Menu. The Main Menu
looks like the following:


GRADESCAN


1. SELECT CLASS

2. ENTER ASSIGNMENTS

3. ENTER GRADES

4. EXAMINE DATA

5. ADD NEW STUDENTS

6. PRINT REPORTS

7. SAVE DATA TO DISK

8. FILE MAINTENANCE

9. QUIT


ENTER THE NUMBER OF YOUR SELECTION:


Your use of the program is closely keyed to the Main Menu.
You choose the option you need from the menu and proceed to the
appropriate program module. In each module you will be guided by
the prompts (that's computer jargon for instructions that appear
on the screen) as to what to do. If you make a mistake by
entering something unacceptable to the program, such as a letter
when you should be entering a number, the program either lets you
reenter the number or returns you to the menu. Either way, you
get as many chances as you need to make the proper entry. And by
the way, if you enter a module that you didn't mean to enter (by
selecting the wrong option from the Main Menu), you can easily
return to the menu. Now let's look at each of the menu options.


1. SELECT CLASS

Before we talk about Option No. 1, it is necessary to
say a special word about Option No. 7: "SAVE DATA TO DISK."
NEWLY ENTERED DATA WILL BE LOST IF YOU EXIT THE PROGRAM OR CALL IN
ANOTHER CLASS WITHOUT FIRST SAVING THE DATA TO DISK. Therefore,
after you have entered new data for a class, or changed data
already in the files, select Option No. 7 from the Main Menu to
save all data from the current class to disk.

The data will be saved to the same disk on which you are running
the program.

Now, for Option No. 1, selecting a class. Choosing this
option from the Main Menu brings up a submenu that allows you to
do one of the following:

1. CREATE NEW CLASS

2. SELECT CLASS

3. RETURN TO MENU

The third option returns you to the Main Menu, in case you ended
up in this module by mistake.

The second option allows you to select from a list of existing
classes. We will discuss it in a moment.

Use the first option, CREATE NEW CLASS, to enter your new classes
into the program. You are permitted to have up to 17 classes.
Selecting this option will bring up a prompt asking you for the
name to be assigned to the class (i, e., the subject). GRADESCAN
does not permit you to create a class without any students in it.
Therefore, your next task will be to enter the names of the
students. You may need to type the names in at the keyboard, but
not necessarily: if you have entered other classes, you may have
the same group of students for other subjects you teach. This is
common in the elementary schools. For example, you may teach the
same students for English and Mathematics, or perhaps you have the
same students for all subjects. Therefore, GRADESCAN will allow
you to use the names from another class that is already stored on
disk. You will not have to type the names separately for each
class. If grades have been entered for the class, these will not
be brought forward into the new class. Only the names are
transferred.

So, you will be presented with three options:

1. ENTER NAMES FROM KEYBOARD

2. ENTER NAMES FROM ANOTHER CLASS

3. ABORT PROCESS - RETURN TO MENU

After you have entered the name of the subject, select the method
you will use for entering the names of the students.

If you elect to enter the names from the keyboard, you will be
presented with an input screen. You are allowed up to 50
students, with up to 25 characters (letters, commas, blank spaces,
etc.) per name. You may enter last names first or first names
first - it doesn't matter. Also, you may include middle initials,
or any other designators, as long as you stay within the limit of
25 characters. The program will not permit you to exceed the
limit, so there is no need for you to count the number of
characters used.

After you have entered the names, press [enter]. The program will
then allow you to proceed or cancel the entire effort.

If you have made a mistake in one of the names that has already
been entered, or if you entered a name that you didn't mean to
enter, there is a way to correct it easily. We will discuss that
under Option 4 of the Main Menu. Any of your entries in any part
of the program can be easily revised or deleted.

To use the names from an established class in the class you are
setting up, select the option worded as "ENTER NAMES FROM ANOTHER
CLASS". A list of all established classes will come up on the
screen. Pick the one you want to use and enter its number. The
program will then duplicate the names into a class roster for the
class you are establishing.

New classes will automatically be stored to disk as part of the
process of establishing the class. No extra step is required.

Option 2, SELECT A CLASS, brings up a list of classes on file.
Simply type in the number of the class you want to load into
memory.

But one important thing here. THE CLASS CURRENTLY IN MEMORY
WILL BE REPLACED BY THE NEW CLASS. MAKE SURE YOU SAVE THE
CURRENT CLASS TO DISK USING OPTION 7 FROM THE MAIN MENU. If
you don't do this, any changes you have made to the data
since you last saved the data to disk will be lost. All
those grades you just entered over the past twenty minutes
will not have been saved to disk. Of course, if you don't
want to retain the new data, you would not save it to disk
prior to calling a new class into memory.


2. ENTER ASSIGNMENTS

Option No. 2 on the Main Menu allows you to enter a
description of each assignment. The word "assignment" is used
here in its broadest sense to include any task given to the
student, whether it be an examination, test, quiz, homework,
project, or report. You may enter up to 40 assignments during
each grading period.

You must enter the assignment before going to Option No. 3 on the
Main Menu, whereby the grade on the assignment is recorded.

You are permitted to describe up to 14 assignments at one time
before entering the grades, but we recommend that you keep things
manageable by entering assignments regularly so your work doesn't
pile up (more than it already is).

Three types of information are required for entry of
assignments:

DATE (mm/dd/yy)

DESCRIPTION (up to 40 characters)

WEIGHT (1 to 50)

NOTE ABOUT WEIGHTING FACTORS: The weighting of assignments
requires special mention. Some assignments probably should count
more than others. If you elect to weight a pop quiz with a
weighting factor of 1, you probably want to assign a larger
weighting factor to a major examination - 2,4,10, or whatever you
may think the assignment is worth. GRADESCAN uses these weighting
factors in calculating the student's average for all assignments.
If you assigned a weighting factor of 4 to the major examination,
GRADESCAN will treat the examination as if the student received
the grade on four assignments each having a weighting factor of 1.
That is, the assignment counts four times as much as an assignment
with a weighting factor of 1. This extra weight is reflected in
the overall average for the student.

Although the display screen identifies the range of weighting
factors as being 1 to 50, there may be occasions where you want
to record a grade for students without having it count in their
calculated average. There is a way to do this. Enter the weight
as zero. GRADESCAN will accept the zero weight, but be careful
when using it. Assignments with a zero weight will not count in
the average.

When you have finished entering assignments, press [enter] and
GRADESCAN will automatically bring you to Option No. 3 on the Main
Menu: ENTER GRADES.


3. ENTER GRADES

GRADESCAN accepts only those grades that are expressed as a
percentage. You may exceed 100% if warranted (up to 999%).

Each student's name will appear on the screen and you will be
prompted to record the grade for each assignment for the student
before proceeding to the next student.

If a student was excused from an assignment, either temporarily or
permanently, enter the letter "x" (either upper or lower case)
instead of a grade. Grades recorded as "x" do not count in the
average, but allow you to keep track of which students have work
which must be made up. If the student makes up the work, you can
enter the grade through the methods contained in Option No. 4 of
the Main Menu, whereby data can be changed.

After all grades have been entered you will be prompted to press
any key to return to the Main Menu. After entering grades, when
you arrive at the Main Menu, it is time to store the new grades
and assignments to disk. Select Option No. 7 from the Main Menu
to save your new data to disk. If you select another class before
having saved you data to disk, you will lose your data for the
present class and have to reenter it!



4. EXAMINE DATA


This module is the core of GRADESCAN. This is where
GRADESCAN tells you what data has been recorded, informs you of
the averages of your students, and allows you to revise data as
required.

Selecting Option No. 4 brings to the screen a submenu containing
the following options:

1. SUMMARY AVERAGES

2. ROSTER, GRADES

3. ASSIGNMENTS

4. LIST OF SUBJECTS

5. RETURN TO MENU


We will look at each option in turn.


SUMMARY AVERAGES:

Now to really put the program through its paces. This is
probably why you bought the program in the first place--to save
you from the laborious task of averaging your grades.

This menu option produces summary averages on the screen for each
student. It does not show you the individual grades on each task
that went into that average. Option No. 2 from the submenu does
that (and it also computes the average). With the current option
you can view the averages on the screen at any time during the
marking period.

Selecting Option No. 1, SUMMARY AVERAGES, brings up a submenu with
the following options:


1. SORTED BY NAME OF STUDENT

2. SORTED BY AVERAGE

3. SUBMENU

4. MENU


Option No. 1 produces an average for each student in the class.
The names will be alphabetical if the roster has been
alphabetized.

Option No. 2 will show the overall class average at the top, and
the average of each student in descending order by average.

You can generate a printed report of these summary averages using
Option No. 6 from the Main Menu: PRINT REPORTS. Option No. 6
will produce a submenu, of which one option will be the summary
averages. The averages in the printed report are listed
alphabetically.


ROSTER, GRADES:

This option from the submenu allows you to do more than just
examine grades. It allows you to change two types of data: the
names of the students, and the grades themselves.

A list of students in the class appears on the screen. Using the
bottom-line menu on the screen, you indicate whether your want to
examine the grades (E) or change the data (C). The only data on
this screen that can be changed is the names of the students.
Once you select an "E" or "C" the prompt will ask you to indicate
the number of the student involved.

If you entered a "C" to change the data, you will be given the
option of changing the student's name or deleting the student from
the class. Deletion is a very permanent procedure. Make sure you
have a record of this student's progress on hard copy or on a
back-up disk before deleting the student.

If you entered an "E", you will be presented with the student's
achievement on each assignment, along with a calculated average.
Again, you will be presented with a bottom-line menu that allows
you to change data (the data here is the student's grades). This
is where we can correct erroneous grades or record the grades for
assignments for which the student has been temporarily excused -
the ones we entered an "x" for previously. Entering a "C" to
change data allows us to carry out this procedure.

You can print hard-copy reports of the grades of the entire class
or of individual students using Option No. 6 from the Main Menu.
We will defer the instructions for printing until we discuss that
option from the Main Menu.


The bottom-line menu allows you to return to the roster to select
other students for examination of grades, or to return to the
submenu or the Main Menu.


ASSIGNMENTS:


Selecting this option from the submenu brings up a screen
displaying all assignments recorded to date. It shows the date,
description, and weight associated with each assignment.

In the bottom line menu, you are given an option to list the
grades for each student on any particular assignment. To do this,
select "L" from the menu. You will then be asked to enter the
number of the assignment you want to examine. Entering the number
will produce a screen showing the class average on the assignment
and the grade earned by each student on the assignment. The
grades will be listed in descending order.

In the bottom-line menu, you are given the option of
changing any of the data. To do this, enter a "C" at the prompt.
You will then be given the option of changing the date,
description, or weighting factor, or of deleting the assignment
entirely.

You may choose to delete the assignment entirely, but if you do,
you will erase any record of the grades earned by students on the
assignment. These grades will no longer count in the students'
averages.

Other prompts on the bottom-line menu allow you to return to the
submenu or the Main Menu.


LIST OF SUBJECTS:

Selecting this option from the submenu brings up a list of
all subjects on file.

Again, you are given the option of changing the data. To do so,
enter a "C" at the bottom-line menu. You will then be given a
choice of changing the name of the subject or deleting the class
entirely from your records.

Other prompts on the bottom-line menu allow you to return to the
submenu or the Main Menu.


5. ADD NEW STUDENTS (and deleting students)

What about that new student who comes to your class from
another school or the student who transfers in to your class from
that of another teacher? This menu option does the trick. You
may add students to the class at any time during the grading
period, as long as you do not exceed the limit of 50 students per
class.

All assignments entered before the addition of the new student
will be automatically recorded for the new student as if he or she
was excused. They will not be calculated in the student's
average.

One additional point. Instead of wanting to add a student, what
if you want TO DELETE A STUDENT. To delete a student, you need to
bring up a roster of the class. To do this, use Option 4, EXAMINE
DATA, from the main menu. From the submenu, select Option 2,
GRADES. This will produce a roster of the class. From the bottom
line menu, select "C", CHANGE DATA. This will produce a question
asking whether you want to revise the student's name. Answering
"no" will produce a question asking whether you want to delete the
student entirely. Answering "yes" to this question will delete
the student from the class.



6. PRINTED REPORTS


This option produces a submenu with the following options


1. GRADES, ENTIRE CLASS

2. GRADES, ONE STUDENT

3. SUMMARY AVERAGES

4. ROSTER

5. OPTIONS

6. MENU


Naturally, the sixth option on the submenu will return you to the
main menu at any time.

The fifth option allows you specify whether, in printing the
grades for an entire class, you want to begin each student on a
new page or print the records contiguously to save paper. The
default is contiguous records.

Options 1 and 2 from this submenu permit you to produce those
valuable reports from Option 4 on the Main Menu, showing the
student's grade on each assignment and the average of all grades.
You may want to distribute these to students at least once during
the marking period to prevent any surprises at report card time
("but you never warned me"). They are also useful for
parent-teacher conferences.

In printing the report of the GRADES FOR ONE STUDENT, you will be
presented on screen with a roster of the students. Indicated the
student whose grades are to be printed by using the EXAMINE GRADES
option from the bottom-line menu (i.e., enter "E", then the number
of the student). You are indeed examining the grades, only this
time you are doing it on hard copy.

The option for a printed roster will give you a formatted
spreadsheet on which you can record attendance, payment of fees,
turn-in of books, or a myriad of other checklist items.

Have you found certain screens in GRADESCAN that you would
like to print but which are not included among the options on the
printing submenu. Simple! YOU CAN PRINT ANY SCREEN BY PRESSING
THE SHIFT KEY (hold it down) AND PrtSc AT THE SAME TIME.



7. SAVE DATA TO DISK

NEWLY ENTERED DATA WILL BE LOST IF YOU EXIT THE PROGRAM OR
CALL IN ANOTHER CLASS WITHOUT FIRST SAVING THE DATA TO DISK.
Therefore, after you have entered new data for a class, or changed
data already in the files, select Option No. 7 from the Main Menu
to save all data from the current class to disk.

The data will be saved to the same disk on which you are running
the program.


8. FILE MAINTENANCE

Selecting this option brings up a submenu with the following
additional options:


1. BACK UP ALL CLASSES

2. SET UP NEXT MARKING PERIOD

3. ERASE ALL CLASSES

4. MENU

Option 1 should be used frequently. Once you have suffered a
disaster you will understand that. EVERY COMPUTER USER HAS HAD AT
LEAST ONE DISASTER FROM FAILURE TO BACK UP HIS OR HER WORK.

If you are running GRADESCAN from a hard disk, back up your files
to a floppy disk in Drive A or Drive B (if you have a Drive B).

If you are running GRADESCAN from a floppy disk, back up your
files to a floppy disk in the unused disk drive. In order to use
GRADESCAN'S internal backup procedure to copy files from one
floppy to another, you must first have copied the file COMMAND.COM
from your DOS disk to the GRADESCAN program disk.

If you are running GRADESCAN from a computer that has no hard
drive and only one floppy drive, you will not be able to use
Option No. 8 from the Main Menu. You will have to use make your
copies by exiting the program and using the DOS "COPY" OR
"DISKCOPY" commands.

When making back-up copies, we recommend that you devote a
complete floppy disk to the back-up files. At any rate, do not
mix GRADESCAN files with other files having a ".DAT" file
extension. If GRADESCAN finds insufficient space on the
destination disk when making the back-up copy, it will erase all
the ".DAT" files it has written to the destination disk, along
with all other ".DAT" files already on the destination disk. For
this reason, we recommend that you devote one floppy disk to
GRADESCAN back-ups and not place any other files on that floppy
disk.

Option 2 allows you to set up your files for the next
marking period. It performs two tasks:

o It makes a back-up copy of all your class files.

o It purges all assignments and grades from you class
files so you can enter new assignments during the new
grading period.

Its operational procedures are identical to those for making
back-up copies.

Option 3 erases all your class files. This is a complete
erasure and no trace of the data is left: not the subject,
student names, assignments, or grades.

o Use this option to erase the practice files that came
with the program, or to erase all files after the
school year is completed.

o Using Option 1, make a copy of the files before you
erase them. This will prevent you from losing class
records or practice files that you might want to
refer to in the future.


9. QUIT

This option allows you to exit from the program. Make sure
you SAVE ALL NEW DATA before exiting from the program.


CHANGING YOUR DATA


Although we have discussed how to make corrections and
revisions to data entries in our discussion of the individual menu
topics, special mention is necessary so that the user understands
the approach taken by the program in permitting easy modifications
and revisions to previous entries.

The gateway to all data revisions is Option 4 on the Main Menu.
Option 4 permits you to examine data. That data may be in the
form of summary averages, grades, assignments, or names of
subjects. Although you entered the data through one of the other
menu options, if you need to revise it you must do so through Menu
Option 4. The forms which these changes may take are described
below:


- Correcting the names of students or deleting students

Select Option 2 (GRADES) from the submenu. Select
"Change Data" from the bottom-line menu. This will allow
you to correct the student's name or delete the student
from the class roster.

- Correcting grades (including the entry of make-up grades
when the student was previously excused from an
assignment

Again, select Option 2 (GRADES) from the submenu, but
this time, select "Examine Grades" from the bottom-line
menu. You will be prompted to identify which student's
grades you want to examine. After you respond to this
prompt, you will be presented with the grades. From the
bottom-line menu of this screen, select "Change Data".
You will then be prompted for the changes you wish to
make.


- Revising information about assignments, or deleting the
assignment from the record

Select Option 3 (ASSIGNMENTS) from the submenu. You will
be presented with a list of all assignments on record for
the class in memory. Select "Change Data" from the
bottom-line menu. This selection will permit you to
change the date, description or weighting factor of the
assignment. If you respond negatively to each of these
options, you will be asked if you want to delete the
assignment. If you say "yes", you will be warned that
deleting the assignment will erase the record of the
assignment and all grades earned on the assignment for

every student in the class.

- Modifying the names of subjects, or deleting classes
entirely

Select Option 4 (LIST OF SUBJECTS) from the submenu and
select "Change Data" from the bottom-line menu. You will
be asked whether you want to change the name of the
subject. If you respond in the negative, you will be
asked if you wish to delete the class entirely. Electing
to delete the class causes the erasure of all data
associated with the class: the students' names, the
assignments, and the grades.
