Standards-based Gradebook

Measure learning every day by aligning all student work to learning targets. Easily capture grading data to analyze and inform instruction. Easily form dynamic groups to individualize instruction. Calculate using a wide variety of algorithms (Power Law, decaying weights, etc). Summarize many targets into an overall grade for transcripts, eligibility, etc. Tight integration allows data to flow from the assessment tool and into report cards.

FEATURES

Built for standards-based grading

Teachers often struggle with standards-based grading when organizations attempt to use their existing student information system (SIS). These systems typically weren't built with standards in mind. The TeacherEase gradebook was built specifically for standards-based grading.

Align student work to standards and learning targets

Each assignment can aligned to one or more standards/learning targets. This clearly defines the objective of the material. The complexity level can also be specified, to understand whether the work is introductory, at expected mastery level, or enrichment.

Capture performance data every day with standards-based grades

For each learning target on an assignment, enter a standards-based score. This allows frequent measurement of student performance.

Calculation supports Power Law, decaying weights, median of recent scores, and others

There are a number of algorithm for combining multiple standard-based scores into a current mastery level. TeacherEase supports most of the popular ones.

"Roll Up" individual standard scores into overall mastery

Scores for individual standards can be rolled up into overall course mastery. If there are categories of standards, sub-totals can be generated as well.

Define standards-based scale unique to your organization

Create scales that are numbers only (e.g. 1, 2, 3, 4) or letters too (e.g. E-Exceeds, M-Meets Expectations, D-Developing, B-Beginning). Each organization can configure its own scale.

Easy user interface

Expand/collapse the layout to easily view and enter scores. Standards-based grading data can be complex, and TeacherEase is designed to help users view and understand it.

Assignments can be given to some or all students

Students progress through the curricula at different rates, and often need different activities. TeacherEase supports differentiation based upon student mastery. It’s easy to give reinforcement activities only to students who need extra practice, or provide enrichment to students who quickly master the concepts.

Dynamically group students based upon mastery

Sort students by standards-based score to identify similar skill groups. Assign appropriate activities to students at the same level. Differentiate instruction within the classroom. Manage independent work at varying mastery levels.

Differentiate instruction by swapping students between teachers

Run mastery reports across an entire grade level to identify dynamic groups. Teachers can exchange students to form classrooms with less variability in mastery level.

Generate histograms of student performance on a standard

Understand class competency and inform instruction. Perform group instruction if appropriate for a large number of students.

Generate student growth charts

Monitor student improvement over time.

Use overall standards-based scores to manage eligibility

Often organizations who move to standards-based education will still need to maintain more traditional processes like eligibility, honor roll, transcripted grades, etc. Overall standards-based scores can be used to meet these requirements, and can also be converted into “A, B, C” grades at the end of a marking period.

Integration with assessment tool aids data collection

TeacherEase includes a full suite of integrated standards-based tools. For teachers who use the assessment tool, standards-based scores can be calculated for online quizzes and automatically flow into the gradebook

Integration with instructional content management reduces planning effort

Standards-based grading often leads to differentiated instruction, which requires more planning effort and is often impractical for individual teachers. Most teachers can’t build multiple lessons and assessments every day. A well organized teaching team can, however. TeacherEase provides an instructional content management tool that allows teams to cooperate and share planning work. When paired with the gradebook, teams can find or build the resources to meet every student's needs.
