History logs for field or record changes?

I'm sure this is an easy one.  How can I get FM to create a record in a
log file when data changes in fields. 

For example, if a student has a grade of  C+, but later,  after
homework is done, gets a new grade of B.

Somehow the log file must contain both the old and new grades.

TIA
