"I have worked with 3 different IEP systems in my 10 years of teaching and I do like Power IEP."

What do you like best?

I like many things with Power IEP. I like how PowerIEP shows clearly when the students next 3 year evaluation is due. On Easy IEP it did not show this. I also like how it is easy to add and take away forms as needed when writing the IEP. I also like the drop down options for the educational placement section. On the minutes page it is great how the special education minutes are automatically totaled for us.

What do you dislike?

I do not like how more than one person can't be on the same page at the same time. Many times we are working on the IEP together and one of us can't get into the page. We are an educational team and usually collaborate on all of our students and this tends to hinder our collaboration. If the program wont let us be on the same page at the same time I wish there was an option to approve another teacher to join the page with you. Then at the IEP meetings everyone on the education team can have access to the same information.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think that Power IEP is very user friendly and with the right training anyone can use it. In the long run you will be happy you switched to this program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is beneficial to have Power IEP because I can easily access a students education plan to make sure they are getting the accommodations and support they need.

"Easy Peas IEPs"

What do you like best?

I love that many people can work on and make changes to the same IEP at the same time. It makes gathering all of the peices super easy. Each piece is at your fingertips

What do you dislike?

Really, not too much. The only thing is that you have to down load the file if you want to see the whole IEP in it's entirely.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is very much worth the time it takes to play around and figure the school out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy collaboration throughout the entire IEP team. I love that it also keeps a running record of all previous IEP for each student

What Special Education solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Power IEP Experience"

What do you like best?

PowerIEP is pretty user-friendly. The forms are easy to find and organized in a way that makes sense. I also like that I have the option to print a "DRAFT" of everything prior to an IEP meeting. Having the ability to rearrange the order of the goals has been helpful as well. Lastly, I like that I can upload specific assessments/documents and attach them to specific meetings or the student in general.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that I am unable to enter the IEP if another staff member is working in it; I'm "locked out". I also HATE that information doesn't automatically update when I enter it into the "Student Information Page".

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I don't deal with the business aspect of PowerIEP so I cannot speak to this.

"PowerIEP for special Education"

What do you like best?

I have used different web based IEP systems and PowerIEP is great compared to other systems I have used. I like that multiple users can get into different pages and put their input in at the same time. I also like that the system is web-based so I can access it from anywhere. I have never had it lose data that I have put into an IEP, which is something I cannot say about other software.

What do you dislike?

I don't love the medicaid billing system attached to it. I used to be able to bill super easily, but now I have to go into each month seperately. The group set up for billing is clunkier compared to other systems I have used.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Not losing hours of work is a huge bonus!

"powerIEP review"

What do you like best?

I like the streamlined interface and the checks and balances (highlighted areas for necessary sections)

What do you dislike?

***Having to "leave page" formally in order for another person to be able to access the page. At minimum, an "override" function by an administrator/LEA/case manager would be helpful. If someone were to be logged onto the page on their home computer this could be a problem. It is also inconvenient that only one person can work on a page at a time (doc of evaluation results).

Section with goal implementers: there is no way to designated primary implementer. When multiple implementers are checked, they all appear to be clicked with no regard to the order. I get around this by using the "other" checkbox and listing in the order desired. In "scheduling for determining progress" there is no option for "monthly" which is what many in my district use. In the related services area, there is no "trimester" option for frequency. This would be helpful since my district is on a trimester vs. quarterly schedule. When printing a goal, there does not appear to be an option to print it without "goal updates" included. For parent contact documentation form, there is not an option to select which contacts to print (such as if I wanted to only pick my contacts for my records).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Can't think of any at this time.

"Easiest IEP software"

What do you like best?

I like how easy it is to navigate within the IEP. I also like that I can name my goals so they are easier to reference later.

Another feature I like is the ability to quickly check portions that typically have responses to improve efficiency when working.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that multiple users cannot be on at once. I also disliked that the company takes a long time to input existing information from other software. Schools need to meet specific deadlines and therefore teachers had to do the extra work.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely worth is once you get used to it. If you are switching make sure you save electronic copies of everything on your old software. This will make inputting information much easier.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I an easily able to write and navigate IEPs. I find that it makes my meetings run smoothly. I like that I can EASILY print the sections I need to be prepared for my meetings as opposes having to scroll through an entire pdf to print the needed pages.

"Easy to Navigate"

What do you like best?

I like that you can go from page to page pretty easily. I like that the billing is easy to click for multiple dates each month and you can copy and paste in the program.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that if another user is on your page you cannot access it. I don't like that you can't use the back button becasue sometimes I accidentally do that and it takes me back to a page I didn't want.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is pretty easy to learn.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I like how you can see all the goals and can navigate easily through all of the evaluations. I like that you can easily print what you need.

"Easy to use!"

What do you like best?

I love that they took all the features I disliked from a previous program and made them better!

What do you dislike?

I wish it was easier to switch back and forth between months (while staying on same child) rather than having to change the month and then select the child again.

I also wish there was a way to decrease the likelihood that another employee locks you out of a screen.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Very user friendly. Decreased time spent navigating online IEP.

What do you like best?

Multiple teachers and administrators can work on the same case. The system is very easy to understand and use.

What do you dislike?

The issue I encounter the most is the text box limitations. Many times I run over the allotted characaters or space.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very intuitive program! Will reduce time and energy needed to produce reports and documents. There is not a ton of training so implementation is easy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Streamline our process, reduce time spent on documents. Helps keep records accurate and easy to refer to.

"PowerIEP supports consistency among its users."

What do you like best?

Connection between initial case studies and re-evaluations and annual IEPs. Easy to refer to previous documents.

What do you dislike?

I would like more options to input informaton that stays the same between some annual reviews. Somewhat cumbersome to cut and paste.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Business benefits include ensuring that we are following all federal laws if the correct paperwork is completed. Personal benefit is that it provides me checks and balances throughout the document.
