In my opinion, this is more frustrating than the old-fashioned paperwork. Some teachers, however, do it by choice. They input all homework grades and test grades. I understand its benefits but I have concerns. First, it seems so easy to make a mistake when inputting so much data. And, second, the inputting of the data in itself may become more important than the teacher's work of actually reading student papers, making corrections and offering suggestions for improvement. There is only a limited amount of time in any given day and, if it is being spent on data entry, it is probably not being used in other pursuits, more central to the role of the teacher. I'd prefer not to feel like one of the bobble heads pictured above.
