"Engrade-Teacher Review"

What do you like best?

I like that Engrade allows me to enter the grades directly into the report card for students. Engrade also allows teachers to enter assignment, tests and quiz scores into a grade book. You have the option to use weighted grades. I also like that you can only enter the grades for that trimester. All teachers that the student has can access the report card. They can also leave comments.

What do you dislike?

As a Prep teacher (I teach computers) I need permission from the regular classroom teacher in order to enter the grades for my students. Until the classroom teacher gives me permission to enter grades for their class--I cannot enter the grades.

I dislike the comments box because it is not large enough and sometimes comments do not fit.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Engrade is easily accessible and saves grades automatically into the report card (whether you do it manually into the report card or use the gradebook). At our school district, we use EngradePro. You can also give a weight to different parts of the grade. I wish that the comment box would expand as you type.

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

As a teacher, it really helps that I can digitally enter grades for my students. The grades are saved automatically and are easily accessible from any computer with internet. It also keeps everything aligned within the school district. All elementary schools in Fremont Unified use Engrade for their report cards. Previous grades can also be seen from other trimesters.

"Great but needs improvement"

What do you like best?

I like how it keeps track of my students progress and makes it easy to grade and provide feedback through the rubric feature. Students can also track their progress and keep up with their assignment due dates through the program.

What do you dislike?

The quiz creation feature needs serious help. When using a visual matching test or other tests that use imagery, it is hard to control how the images layout with the test. It makes the test confusing for the students and a lot of times I'm having to explain the test to them. The discussion forums could use a notification tool like the email so that the responses can be more timely. It would also be nice if the discussion forum could also integrate the rubric grading feature in with it in order to keep track required responses in one place.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a great program, the phone app does not seem to be of any use.

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

Gradebooks are universal and seen by many people at once to keep everyone informed of how the students are progressing throughout a grading period.

What Learning Management System (LMS) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Helpful and comprehensive for both teachers and parents"

What do you like best?

I loved being able to grade on my Ipad. This was awesome in that during school trips, students could upload their documents and made it easy for me to grade on the bus! I also like that parents can track and see the success of their students.

What do you dislike?

I wish there was a component for checking plagiarism and citation support for students.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ensure that you have a good plagiarism checker for your school to go with the engrade work. ensure that your school is equipped to handle the platform and that parents also have access to it- if they do not, its not as helpful as it could be. perhaps provide parents with training days as to how to use the software.

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

Transparency for students and teachers and parents in the grading process. Parents seem to support teachers more in that they know where their grades are coming from and can see feedback for students.

"Still new at this"

What do you like best?

EnGrade seems to have many things in one place, so a move to it could be a move to streamline from other platforms. Streamlining is always a good idea, if done right.

What do you dislike?

The downside to streamlining is upheaval. People in general resist change. If three softwares are getting the job done, why change to one that seems hard?

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it time. I think that perhaps over the course of a few years this will find its benefit level. Patience, not always easy, is recommended.

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

Standardized tests are so far the only thing that has really been done successfully, but we are still in development.

"good Experience "

What do you like best?

the simpleness of the interface which clean and easy to use

What do you dislike?

admin function. feel like every thing is in box you can filter any or ad any thing much

Recommendations to others considering the product

if you want just simple grading system for teachers, student and parents this is ok. but as an administrator i will say no to engradepro, all data or function are limited and when you ask why? the answer i get is not in their list to be worked on for now. for example Grading period (semesters or quarters) you can't lock the editing period the only thing you can do is Hide and if you do so no one can see it even you as the admin. and every time you want to check or view you have to unhide it which will unhide for every one too. to top it off if a teacher accidentally enter a assignment and entered a date of a past semester or Quarter and save it. the grade in that pasted semester will change. so as a admin i am not happy and considering to move if engradepro do not improve soon.

"Needs improvement but does the job"

What do you like best?

Automatic grade calculations (weighted or not)

Administration access to all grades in all classes

What do you dislike?

EngradePro.com is not as user friendly as Engrade.com when it comes to managing students (grading periods & marking periods are confusing)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use the technical support phone number as often as needed. Push to get the answers you need. Sometimes I was told, "Well, it's not an 'issue' with the website; it's just not very user friendly." I don't want to be stuck in a semantics argument; I just want the issue fixed.

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

We wanted to achieve quick record keeping that was web based, easily accessible to teachers and user friendly. I think it is really user friendly from teachers, but the administrators must be very diligent. The have a phone number for tech support, which I have used a number of times. The benefits are automatic grade calculations (weighted and not weighted) as well as administrative access to all grades and classes.
