We’ve just released a new feature in QuickSchools that will allow you to save your search parameters as you move between screens. This would be helpful as you’re reviewing the a specific student record, and then moving to other modules like Discipline. Here’s how it works:
Simply click on the red Lock icon to turn on the feature. And whatever you type into the search box will be saved moving forward. You can unlock by clicking on the red Lock icon again.
We’re still adding the capability to our many screens. Right now, it’s only available on a few modules. But if you find this feature useful, and you’d like it enabled on specific screens/modules, do let us know. We’re looking to prioritize these.
QuickSchools now has a feature that will allow teachers to copy grades from another gradebook into their existing gradebook. Here’s how it works:
First, click on the student name on the Gradebook roster. This will bring up an additional menu:
From here, you can view all subjects that the student is taking (or has taken), including dropped/deleted courses. If you click on a subject, it will bring up a PDF of the students grade from that gradebook (which you can print for your records). However, what’s interesting here is the Copy function. Clicking on it will bring up the copy interface: Read more…
With this app, you can allow teachers to very easily award/assign Merit Items with preset points (both Positive and Negative):
As an administrator, you can configure the following:
- list of Merit Items and their corresponding positive/negative points
- total number of merit items that can be awarded/assigned to a student on any given day
- total number of merit points that can be applied to a student on any given day
- initial number of points (starting points) for students at the beginning of the term
- point floor (i.e. Merit Points can never go below the point floor for each student)
This nifty new feature should help make grading go a bit quicker: now, you can now autofill empty grades. Whether the entire gradebook column is empty, or just a few students are missing grades, or you need to override all students’ grades, with a new value,Gradebook autofill smartly updates students’ grades with a value that you chose. Let’s take a quick look:
We have some new improvements to the QuickSchools Gradebook, which we’d like to announce. When you click on the Gradebook Template icon on the top right corner, you now have several new options:
You can now print your Gradebook without having to use the Print Screen feature.
Print Student Progress Reports
This feature will produce Gradebook Print-Outs for each student for the current selected subject. It should come in handy for your Parent Teacher conferences, since each student will be printed on it’s own page. Read more…
We have many new exciting improvements in QuickSchools which will be announced very soon. But just for starters, here’s a small improvement on how you can now bulk print your report cards. Instead of bulk downloading all your report cards for a particular marking period (which is still available), there’s now an option to “Print (In Order)”, which will produce a single PDF with all the selected report cards linked together in the order you specify on the screen:
Now that report card season is coming up. Please feel free to try that out, and let us know of any other improvements you’d like to see in future releases.
