New gradebook delivers in-depth student performance data in real time
Edgenuity, a provider of online and blended learning solutions, launched of a robust new teacher Gradebook at ISTE 2016. The Gradebook tool enables teachers to monitor student engagement, progress, and achievement in real time.
Edgenuity’s data capabilities are intended to help teachers in blended learning classrooms view a range of key details about each student’s work at a glance. For example, Gradebook visually identifies which students are falling behind and which are on track, as well as how students are doing at a unit, lesson, and activity level. Additionally, the tool allows teachers to view key metrics for all students at once, which is particularly critical to teachers working in blended learning classrooms.
“Teachers spend one-third of their day on administrative tasks, including grading,” said Sari Factor, CEO of Edgenuity. “Our new Gradebook makes teachers’ time far more productive, empowering them by providing actionable data on student performance to tailor instructional approaches, identify which students may be in need of remediation, and personalize the learning experience.”
Edgenuity’s Gradebook provides teachers student tracking through these features:
Averages Compute Automatically – Gradebook calculates both student and class averages across all activities.
Color Coding for Progress – A colored bar displays each student’s course completion in relation to where they should be – green for on track, red for behind.
Engagement Tracking – Shows students’ total active time as well as days since last log in.
Traditional Gradebook View – All students in a section are listed on one page – like a paper-and-pencil gradebook.
Gradebook will be available in fall 2016.
