It was crashing occasionally in 2016, but I haven't had a problem since then. I recommend it to colleagues, but tell them to remember to back up their marks just in case it goes flakey again...

Pros
Easy to use gradebook. Creates ordered entries and can export to Excell.

Cons
There doesn't seem to be support from the company. I have not received a response when I had questions.

A free grade book and lots of saved time.

Pros
A completely free grading software for teachers. You can assign seating charts, fill out grade books, and more.

Cons
The way the grade book is organized could be done a lot more intuitive and faster. It takes a while to enter your assignments.

Best gradebook option I have found

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
Learnboost is slicker and easier to use than any other option: easier than learning management software and certainly than a spreadsheet.

Cons
The functionality to share grades with students has some UX oddities about confirmations and such. But that's minor.

I like the software but my students could not access the gradebook and Learnboost would not respond to requests for help. I have seen this same problem reported elsewhere.

Pros
It was very easy to set up classes and enter grades

Cons
The company does not respond to requests for help when there are problems, like students cannot access their grades when they log in. There is no tutorial to help with any problems.
