We rolled out a new QuickSchools Report Card module just this past summer. For some of our older subscribers still using the old Report Card module, here is a quick run down of the new module:
No more submission flow
Report cards no longer need to be submitted by teachers and principals before they get finalized. Instead, report cards can be edited by all parties involved. At the end of the marking period, the report cards can be published all at once, making it accessible to students and parents immediately via their respective portals.
Also, to make changes to a completed report card, you simply need to unlock the marking period, and make changes directly to the report card. You no longer need to revert the report card, and then resubmit it.
Customize your own Report Cards
The new Report Cards module comes with a number of report card templates that you can choose from. After selecting a report card template, you can then further configure elements within the report card module. You can even hide or rename fields. This means that schools can start producing meaningful report cards minutes after sign-up, instead of having to wait for our technical staff to customize it for you.
New WYSIWYG Interface
When you edit the report card, you get to see what it looks like as you edit it. You don’t need to wait until the report card is finalized before you can see it. Also, this means that you can print out empty report cards if needed.
Control what subjects are shown in the Report Cards
The report cards will automatically display subjects based on what the student is enrolled in. However, you have the option of hiding specific subjects from the report cards. Say you have a “Homeroom” subject that you’ve created for attendance purposes, or a “Physics Lab” for scheduling purposes, you can now hide these from the report cards on your own, if you need to.
Deactivate specific report cards
You can now deactivate specific report cards from the marking period; making them inaccessible even after all the report cards are published. This would help schools that want to withhold grades from specific parents who have not paid their dues.
In summary, the new module is designed to give you more control over the report cards. It’s simpler and easier to use. If you have further questions, please feel free to chat with us.
