    I am a native speaker, but it has been many years since I worried about, or even thought about, grades. I had a hard time even picturing / remembering the record you were about. Hence the question mark.

    "Gradebook" is what my wife calls it -- she teaches Freshman Composition at a university. Commented Jun 16, 2016 at 12:30

It's called grade book

According to the Collins dictionary is "a book in which a student's grades are recorded"

The same things on Oxford dictionary: "A book in which marks for a student’s work are recorded"

  • British English: "Markbook". Sometimes, since teachers might use the same book to mark attendance as grades, it is the "register".
