So the students in sheet 1 are assigned to different teachers. If the teachers have about 20 students, how can I look at the teachers overall averages?

Excelchat Expert
13/03/2018 - 03:08

You can actually, pull the teachers into the list where marks are present.

I am going to implement that.

Excelchat Expert
13/03/2018 - 03:09

Then, you can use pivot table to summarize by average.
