Hi all

I'm a new Mathematics teacher in a public secondary school in Spain. My students age from 12 to 16 years and they do specially bad with Mathematics.

Because of this and because the reasons they can't pass maths exams are so different I decided to do a sort of continuous evaluation on them.

The methodology I carry on them is based on periodic exercises and and homework that eventually is specific for each student. As they learn with different speeds I need a method to keep track of their personal progress, finished activities or exercises, annotations and ideas for their future training, marks, etc.

Is there any linux (ubuntu if possible) tool you know to perform this tasks.

I'll be glad to hear any idea or suggestion from you anyway

Thanks a lot

ClaSS (http://www.laex.org/class/) seems to do exactly that.

There's also Focus-SIS (http://www.focus-sis.org/) and the SchoolTool (http://schooltool.org/) group is working on a skills tracking module called CanDo.

Thanks folks
I have another question
Which of them would you recommend, considering I'm more interested on qualitative than on quantitative information about the students.

I would recommend CanDo (http://www.schooltool.org/st-products/cando) - it's a skills tracking system - It's still in beta but a few schools in the US are currently using it.
