The Blue Academic Template

As part of our initiative to share the awesome customreport cards at QuickSchools, today we’re sharing a public template. If it looks good to you, feel free to chat in – we’d love to enable it and help you set it up just the way you’d like!

The brand-new Blue Academic template is the first addition to our new line of restyled report cards. It’s a gorgeous single-term template that works for all sorts of situations and schools. Not only is it great for end-of-term report cards, but it’s also fantastic for mid-term progress reports as well. Take a look at the sample below to see how it might appear when it’s filled out.

Blue Academic

This template is both simple and flexible, as it supports marks, grades, comments, and overall comments. Designed by the QS Design Team, it’s meant to be easily readable, yet able to hold tons of information. Alongside the basic subject details, Academic Blue also supports several other features. These include…

  • Term GPA
  • Subject Credits
  • Grading Scale
  • Teacher, Parent, and Principal Signatures

If this template looks like it might work for your school, you can switch to it anytime! It’s the default template for all new Report Card sessions and can be selected from the “Change Template” menu in setup report cards. Of course, if you’d like any help enabling it or setting it up, please chat in and let us know!

The Hudson College Report Card Template

As part of our initiative to share the awesome custom report cards at QuickSchools, today we’re sharing a private template. If it looks good to you, feel free to chat in – we’d love to enable it for you and help you set it up just the way you’d like!

At Hudson College in Toronto, ON students receive report cards that give detailed grades on both behavior and academics. It’s a very specific template, so we all worked together to build it with Hudson. When all was finished, Director Jeff Bavington had this to say about the process –

“The ability to customize our reports to suit our school’s personal needs was crucial for us at Hudson. The support team at Quick Schools – especially Azroy and Rick – were tremendously responsive and helpful in designing, testing, and implementing our reports. The result of our new report system is that it’s simultaneously more simple and efficient, yet also much more detailed and personalized for each student – and we’re only getting started! We are very pleased with the results. I highly recommend Quick Schools to any school looking for great features, flexibility, and support for their SIS needs”

Of course, special thanks to Director Bavington and all our friends at Hudson College! It was a pleasure to work Report Cards with you too!

Since it’s such a fantastic and detailed report card, we are all certain that it may be of some help to other schools. Without further ado, here’s a look at a sample Hudson College report card.

The Report Card Sequencing Checklist

One of the awesome things about QuickSchools report cards is how flexible they are. You can set up as many Report Sessions as needed for any combination of progress, quarter (or cycle), or semester grades. However, once in a while, the grades might appear in the wrong column on a semesters-, cycle-, or quarters- style report card. For just this situation, we have Report Card sequencing – so you can chose the semester column for grades and attendance to appear.

Brand-new Report Cards that have been just setup can occasionally have a somewhat unexpected appearance, especially if you have a few Report Cards from the same quarter in your module. The system automatically treats each of these report cards like records individual, official quarters, which while often very helpful, isn’t always. If your report cards look a bit like the examples below, then it’s best to manually set the Sequence to help them to display properly.

The Report Cards might have Term 2 Grades repeating through multiple columns…

…or, Term 1 Grades missing entirely…

… or have Term 2 appearing in the Term 1 column.

Though they might not look so great at first, each of these examples can be fixed quickly with Report Card sequencing. Once you have made a new Report Card session, the Sequence can be set from the admin’s Setup Report Cards menu. If you’d like to sequence your report cards, here’s the step-by-step guide!Read More »
