Standards-Based Gradebook

We’re really excited to announce the QuickSchools system for Standards-Based Grading, which is now available in the App Store! After receiving requests from teachers and schools, we decided to build out this brand-new module to make it easier for everyone to keep track of standards and grades within the classroom. Whether your school has adopted Common Core or uses another standards system, the SBG-enabled setup and gradebook makes it simple to track students’ progress in many different learning areas.

Standards-Based Gradebook

The SB Gradebook is designed to give teachers and administrators an at-a-glance view of students’ performance for each standard taught in class. Not only does it automatically average students’ grades for a standard by using a formula that schools can choose and configure, but it also has a colorful display that is great for highlighting notable standards or students’ grades. Here’s a look at a sample Gradebook.

Several schools that use the awesome QuickSchools Attendance module had requested an at-a-glance visual of attendance for all students. The app developers heard your ideas, and now we have a great app to show students attendance for each day. Let’s take a look at this awesome Attendance Snapshot app!

The app is available in the App Store “School Apps section”. Admins can configure who has access to the app, since it shows attendance data for all students in the school regardless of class or grade-level.

Advanced Subject Setup App

We’ve recently unveiled a brand new app in the QuickSchoolsApp Store. It’s a supplement to the Subjects module, called “Advanced Subject Setup”.
