Merry Christmas! We are pleased to announce the release of Online Grades version 3.2.4. This release features "Grade Groups" capability, which allows for coaches or administrators to review the overall grades for a group of students. Thanks to "evilpluto" for doing much of the work to move this feature over from an old version of Basmati. For an overview of how Grade Groups works please see http://docs.onlinegrades.org/Faculty_Group_Grades.
If you are wondering where Online Grades 3.2.3 went, we decided to skip this version number due to the new Grade Groups functionality and other new features that have been added since 3.2.2. There were no database changes in this release, so upgrading is very straight forward. See http://docs.onlinegrades.org/Upgrading_from_Previous_Versions for details. If you upgraded from 3.2.1 to 3.2.2 the procedure is the same.
We are also pleased to announce support for a new grade book program, GradeL - http://gradel.sourceforge.net/ . GradeL is a free graphical grade book program that currently runs only on Linux.
Thanks for your continued support of the growing Online Grades community and we look forward to another year! Details of the new features and bugs fixed are below.
