Ask Slashdot: Open Source Software To Manage Student Grades? 120 120

An anonymous reader writes "I have been assigned the task of finding a software package to automate the management of grades in a high school. It does not need to be a complete system, but rather just manage grading calculations and printing of report cards. The management of grades is currently done using spreadsheets. What are some open source options to handle this situation?"

    Are you recommending OpenGrade, then?

    To you and the others who imply "You must be incompetent because you could have just Googled it..." I'm guessing the OP actually DID google it, and was hoping that slashdot might be more useful than a simple google search.

    How do you Google something without knowing what the proper keywords are??

    also it may be getting a consensus on what works/does not work/ is painful to use is what is the Big Point in this.

    in similar fashion RTFM has two problems 1 Y'all need to WTFM first 2 The Kama Sutra does not cover this topic (but is more useful than what manuals are written)

    a better way of saying JFGI is "Google needs |student information system GPL|"

    Lately on /.

    I have a job to do, but I am too lazy/ignorant/both to do my job or even to use Google. Dear slashdot, will you do my work for me?


    We are some BI company and we are doing market research on this area. What is your favourite software for/which one would you recommend for this task?

    Rinse and repeat...
