It is hard to believe that the end of the first grading period is almost upon us. The school year is nearly a quarter of the way over and it is time to start thinking about sending out the first set of report cards for the year.
If that thought sends a chill down your spine, maybe it is time to rethink how you prepare, process, and print report cards at your school?
With a system like Twine, producing report cards are as simple as a few clicks of a button:
Throughout the term, teachers record assignment grades into their customized gradebooks.
At term close, teachers verify gradebook information and, with one click, submit student grades to the front office, along with other relevant report card data, such as behavior, learner attributes, or comments.
Front office staff can easily see which teachers’ grades are missing, review written comments, and verify that everything looks good.
Once all the grades have been submitted, front office staff can print out report cards to send them home or publish them securely online for parent and student access.
The beauty of using Twine for report cards is it eliminates the need for bulky, hard-to-read grade spreadsheets submitted by teachers, makes it easy for administration to determine what grades are still outstanding, and makes the whole process less time consuming and more streamlined, so teachers and administrators can move on and put their focus back on the students. Even more exciting is that, with Twine, you can have custom report cards that use alternative grading scales and provide room for teacher comments, attendance, behavior notes, and more.
