Gradebook/markbook for classes
There should be a gradebook which automatically records results from assignments. A Gradebook is needed to show ALL the students grades for ALL the assignments. Something with weighting and totaling of selected assignments.
Get your first glimpse of the new gradebook and individual student progress views coming soon to Teams for Education: https://aka.ms/TeamsEDU2Year

This would be a welcome addition. Would also love to be able take the class roll then it would be Teams and class note books all the way.
Right now the Export to Excel feature is great, I wish this was available as an ONLINE Excel Cloud based file. This way I can edit and add calculation features directly online.
I agree! The oly thing missing from the Teams/OneNote partnership is a gradebook or an easy way to migrate grades. If Microsoft could add a gradebook I think we might finally have a one stop shop! Imagine that. :-)

It could also indicate whether a student has handed an assignment in, especially if you're doing something that has no points attached but you need to track how far along a student is in their work.

This was just the idea that I was going to add. I am currently entering marks into the Assignment and then having to copy them to my Excel gradebook. I would to have one spreadsheet per class that is made up (automatically) from the grades I put into Teams. Also, I would like the Assignment grade to automatically convert to a % from the raw data that I put in. Being able to review a students progress over time is a fundamental requirement (please!).
And can these all end up in ONE excel sheet rather than an excel for every assignment!

Right now, you have to view each individual assignment to see if a student has turned it in or not. It would be helpful to able to view John Smith and see what he's turned in all at once.

I would like to have categories like homework, tests, ....
Then I can combine the grades with a custom function (for instance sum, average, ...)

Agreed, being able to open it up as an excel document seems like a natural development and one with great potential.
In the future it would be great if you could customize the markbook (for example add columns between assignments that do topic aggregrations, lookups for grading etc.) which just places new assignments in the next spare column (or we can select to import individual assignments as a column to the class markbook).
Even better than this would be to link forms to the same markbook so these could be added as assignments.
