Using pandas to Make a Gradebook in Python

One of the jobs that all teachers have in common is evaluating students. Whether you use exams, homework assignments, quizzes, or projects, you usually have to turn students’ scores into a letter grade at the end of the term. This often involves a bunch of calculations that you might do in a spreadsheet. Instead, you can consider using Python and pandas.

In this course, you’ll learn how to:

  • Load and merge data from multiple sources with pandas
  • Filter and group data in a pandas DataFrame
  • Calculate and plot grades in a pandas DataFrame

Thanks for the quality of your content. Probably one of the best courses on RP. I didn’t find any difficulties coding along.
