The Student and Parent Perspective…GradeMaster Style

Do you ever wonder what the student and/or parent sees when they log in to the gradebook program you are using as a teacher? Have you ever been able to explore the differences in versions? This blog has given you a virtual tour of GradeMaster through the eyes of an administrator and a teacher…now it’s time to see what the program looks like to your audience, students and parents.

Let’s get this party started with a look at the Student “Dashboard”. As you can see, the “Dashboard” displays the progress of the student front and center. The Standards-Based grades can be seen to the right of each assignment. You will also notice a red bar, which is an overall indicator of student proficiency in any given standard.  The “Dashboard” also lists important grading period information, along with a school event calendar along the bottom. To the left, students can also view any upcoming events the teacher posts to the class.

The “Activities/Assignments” feature allows students/parents to keep track of assignments and the dates they are due.

The “Student Schedule” function allows your students/parents to view the Course Name, Subject, Room, Teacher’s Name, Start Time, End Time, and Special Subjects. It is a nice, comprehensive view of a student’s schedule.

The “Messages” function allows the student/parent to message the teacher, and keep track of all correspondence in an organized fashion.

The “Parent/Teacher Conference Signup” allows the parent or guardian to schedule a conference from within the account by using a code classroom teachers generate. It is a comprehensive service that takes the worry out of parent teacher conference communication.
