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.
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.
There’s a lot going on in this concise gradebook view! Not only can any class be configured to use custom standards, but each and every gradebook has lots of powerful features. Here are some of the highlights….
- Customizable Choice of Standards
- Unlimited assessments
- Customizable Grading Category Weighting
- Automatic averages grades for each standard
- Configurable Overall Average formula
- Automatic Overall Average Calculation
- Color Coding
- Analytics of Student & Class Success

Let’s first take a look at what a teacher would enter into his Intermediary Math 6 class’ gradebook.
