Grading at any time in the school year is the Achilles heel of many a teacher out there. It can be tedious, time-consuming, and piles up quicker than it ought to.

Grading at the end of the school year is a whole other beast altogether - the sheer amount of work that can come in as the school year winds down is something teachers often overlook when assigning things to students.

My tips today have a lot to do with the planning process in order to set yourself up for success, but can still be used even when we are past that point (Tip #3 especially!).
