Ah, grading, grading, grading...  A never-ending story.  I update grades throughout the semester but it's still a daunting task because I want to make sure students know why they were assigned a certain grade and what they can do to improve.  In my opinion, grading is more than just assigning grades -- it's a critical teaching opportunity.  Also, consistency is very important but oh so difficult to achieve.  I use detailed grading rubrics (shared with students to be used while they working on assignments) and that helps, a lot.

Here is an interesting post (and the source of photo below).
