This lesson will guide you through the process of duplicating Gradebooks for use by teachers/staff as templates. Gradebooks duplicated and shared will be copied with ALL parts of the Gradebook (this means assignments, preferences, etc). The duplicate Gradebook can be used/customized without altering the original.
This is most useful, for example, with elementary schools in which all 1st grade teachers give exactly the same assignments throughout the year and want a school-wide template to be shared out instead of every individual teacher creating the same Gradebook. An Administrator can create the Gradebook, share access to it and then this can be duplicated and renamed/altered by teachers.
