It’s a gradebook, it’s a lesson planner, it’s an all-around teacher tool!
Paperless Teacher allows teachers at all levels of education to reduce their paperwork burden while increasing their speed in grading and productivity in giving feedback. Attendance, participation, homework, tests, and assignments can all be created, managed, and graded, and results can be sent to students with the tap of a button.
Get rid of your gradebook, get rid of your attendance sheets, get rid of your lesson planner, get rid of your rubric sheets and make the most of your time and effort. After weighting each gradable element, scores are calculated automatically and can be emailed directly to students or parents. No more wasting time trying to figure out the grade value per class, or tallying unexcused absences.
In creating your lesson planner, there is no repetitive entering of information. Based on semester dates and class times, we lay out a lesson plan framework that can then be modified as much or as little as you need.
For school-wide use, student and semester databases can easily be shared with others, so that others can see your lesson plans and student profiles. Reports can be generated and shared, either as an overview of the whole semester or just individual sections, such as attendance or tests.
Remember, an app is only as great as the community that uses it, so share your questions, concerns, and ideas with us!
