What do you like best?
I like that I can access the students' info really quickly. Usually when I need to contact a parent, here is where i go for info. Also, this helps to keep attendance with comments. Teacher communication with this isn't as easy. Everyone can see the comments when you log in.
I also like the texting feature. We use this so the families don't have to receive plenty of calls throughout the day. We communicate that when the parents' are available they can give us a call back.
I don't like the lesson plan feature. I always use my own format.
What do you dislike?
I dislike that you have to generate report cards separate because it won't always save the grades. You have to go back in and make sure that it'll generate or else you have to go manually. I also dislike having to pick different values for grading. It is very tidy.
Recommendations to others considering the product
I think each menu should describe what it does. Like if its the attendance menu, it should say "take roll, view statistics."
or if its Admissions, it should say "add a student, currently enrolled, pending app" etc.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I like that they show a pie chart with attendance. I realized that the statistics of the attendance and visuals are a good technique when in the conversation of attendance.
