  1. Enter grades by seating chart!!

    This was one of the best features of Easy Grade Pro! When teachers walk around we write grades on seating charts. To be able to enter the grades in that order is an a huge time saver. I have been missing this feature for years now!

  3. getting rid of the window within the window for entering student grades.

    Currently, when entering grades, there is a window on the web page, and teachers have to scroll up and down to find students. Teachers have to manage 2 scroll bars. Being able to see all students on 1 page is better than having to deal with the 2nd scroll bar.

  4. Allow assignments for individual students that are not posted for the whole gradebook (differentiated assignments)

    Some students require differentiated or alternate assignments that do not need to be viewed for all students. This would permit those assignments to be added to their grades.

  5. 50% min.max should NOT apply to Missing Assignments!

    I love the idea of allowing students to recieve a 50% in place of anything less on an assignment that they have scored poorly on; however, if they have not completed the assignment or it is missing, and a grade is NOT entered- this assignment should absolutely NOT be calculated as 50%. They didn't DO the assignment and this causes for students who have more missing assignments than finished assignments to have inflated grade that does not accurately reflect their actual progress in the class. Please fix.

  6. Allow teachers to exclude individual assignments from being considered in the 'Drop Lowest Score' rule

    One possible scenario includes dropping the lowest test score before the final, WITHOUT dropping the final.

  8. Font Size Choices

    Allow teachers to choose between a pre-configured set of font sizes for the gradebook. It would behave similar to picking sizes like Normal, Large, Really Large

  9. Allowing us to see the student side of Aeries

    We should be able to make a dummy account or be able to click "view as student" or "view as parent" to see how it would look to them. I often get questions from parents or students about where to find things, and I am just as puzzled as they are.

  12. Refresh Student Summary Information

    Refresh the view of the Student Summary immediately when a new score is entered, currently teacher needs to refresh the screen to see the changes.

  13. Allowing teachers to prevent the grade % from being displayed so a four point (0-4, or other) grading system can easily be implemented

    Allowing teachers to use the "Final Grades" tab to create a 0-4 (four) point grading system - this will require that the teacher be able to disable the student grade % from being displayed in places like the parent portal, student portal and all other downstream locations. Using the "Final Grades" tab in the existing gradebook already works to allow teachers to implement the four point grading system, but the display of the grade % adjacent to the grade causes confusion for students and parents - as well as concern about special education cases where a target % has been…

  15. iPad Focused Data Entry

    The current iPad data entry for the gradebook is sufficient, but could be slightly improved. We are considering creating an iPad focused data entry dialog that would remove the need for the keyboard for the iPad. This screen would have it's own number pad or selector depending on what kind of field you're currently editing. It would have quick navigation for getting to the next student or assignment.

  16. Locking scores, or giving an alert when about to overwrite a score

    I have accidentally overwritten scores. It would be good if there was an alert when you are about to overwrite a score in case you really don't want to.

  19. On the Scores by Class view, have the ability to filter for only students who are missing assignments

    Currently the Student view has a check box to only show only missing assignments. Add the same functionality to the scores by class page could be useful.

  20. Allow the selectable option of teacher to be automatically notified via an email whenever a student adds or drops their class.

    This would give teachers a heads-up and give them a little more prep time to incorporate these new students into the increasingly common group work that is part of the CCSS with less down time.
