Collaborative workbook for student self assessment -- I need some ideas

I have created a simple page for students to track their daily performance totals in class. I would like for students to be able to have access to this sheet and input their self assessed score each day for several weeks.

Is it possible to share this workbook with 25ish students at one time, but only allow them to see their own inputs? I don't want the students to see the scores and self assessments of their peers.

Any ideas on how I can set this up?

Excel is not designed to be accessed simultaneously by two or more people. Only one person can access Excel at a time.

A workaround would be to use Microsoft's SkyDrive, where users can edit in the Excel Web app.

Sorry, I should have clarified. We are using Microsoft 365. So the students will be using the Excel Web App to access the workbook. But I only want the students to see their own sheet/own data... without having to create 150 individual Excel Workbooks.

You could design one sheet with all of the student information broken down into sections - one for each student. Initially hide all of those sections, then provide a password to 'unhide'
each section appropriately.

At the moment, I can't think of another way other than to create 150 individual sheets that are password protected.

Either way, you will either create 150 individual sheets, or 150 individual password protected areas on one sheet.

Then again ... if you placed all the information into a database sheet, and password protected each section there, retrieving to a master sheet or user form only the individual student info per the appropriate password,
you are still creating 150 passwords.

Either .. or
