I use org-mode to keep track of grades and all other information I
collect on students. I make great use of tables, table formulas, tags,
headlines, and lists. I can compute a grade in milliseconds. Entering
data is a snap. Since everything is plain text, I can add comments with
ease and use git to keep track of everything.
