The PADI Gradebook is an application created under the Principled Assessment Designs for Inquiry (PADI) project that combines assessment design information with student response data and employs a scoring engine to generate estimates of student proficiency. Gradebook supports viewing, editing, and importing of scores. It supports some simple, automatic evaluation actions on item scores that are part of a bundle of dependent items, if this bundling is specified in the assessment design. After using the scoring engine to calculate student proficiency, Gradebook displays a summary of student proficiencies in a graphical presentation.
