A site maintained by teachers for teachers
Engrade is a free online application which can be used by teachers to keep record of the grading of students. It provides a way to evaluate the curriculum, manage assessment and monitor student progress in real-time onto a one easy-to-use platform.
Whenever a teacher creates a class the students as well as their parents (two different accounts) then receive their login information from the school. The parent is able to log-in using the child’s username and adding “1” to it, e.g. johngatt3 is the student then johngatt31 is the parent’s username.
Another utility I found while checking out Engrade was the attendance feature which is useful as a storing method for teachers. The attendance can be later printed or imported to a personal computer. Also, parents will be able to see if their children attended the lessons.
Furthermore, teachers are able to view the grades of any withdrawn students if there were any previous grades uploaded before.
An Engrade App can also be downloaded for iOS devices named Class Pro.
