Ratings and Reviews
A few more things would improve it.
I want to rate this higher. There’s a lot that’s awesome about it. However, why does it not give the ability to put out transcripts? That and the syncing issues others have mentioned caused me to remove two stars. I also purchased the student grade tracker this developer put out to use its transcript making ability. But that only allows me to do one student’s work at once. Then I guess I’ll have to delete and lose all the data to work on the next student. Not cool. I wish these two apps were combined — so I could make individual transcripts for each student. I’m a homeschool mom, and this would be invaluable to me for my record keeping. Nearly $14 for both together, and they don’t combine data.
Update: I think this will be more helpful with the transcripts than I first recognized. I do wish, though that it was explicitly labeled as such, and that it could be printed directly from the app. I’ve added another star.
Does this thing actually work????!!!!!
I have waisted an entire day trying to import student names and info from a csv file in Dropbox. I have watched tutorials, read through what I could find, updated Dropbox, rearranged the fields on my csv files anyway I could think of, and it still does not load. At one point I got it to load last names only!! Woopee,! If I knew that was all I could get I would have typed them in. When I finally decided to seek help in the app I was rewarded with a glitch and the app closed. Of course I had to try again and each attempt was another glitch with an error message. If you hear me out there, I would really love to use this app and if you can help me I will gladly take this review down and replace it with another. But right now I am going back to a spread sheet. I had really hoped to go into class much more prepared and was excited about the features in this app but I am out of time now. Thanks a lot!
I used this app for the first time this year to track grades for home schooling. I wish I had it years ago. I haven't been able to get bonus points to work as described in the documentation (which is why I took off one star), but otherwise it has been fairly easy to use.
I keep a paper schedule of assignments that gets dated as each item is completed, so I don't track attendance with the app. But I DO keep my grade book on it entirely. This has allowed me to do a running GPA score for my student every week so she can be on the lookout for ways to improve her performance. If I'd had that capability when I had 5 kids to track, it would have been SO HELPFUL! I don't think I will be going back to Excel spreadsheets at this point.
