Learn how a busy teacher streamlines her quarterly feedback and grading process to save time and deliver results.
Report cards, parent conferences, professional development, progress reports, even making time after school to help students - lately, it seems there are more and more demands placed on professional education staff. The increased work load and pressure to perform is not unique and is a problem faced by many educators. Stacey is one example of someone who found her time being pinched by all of these administrative requirements of the modern classroom, leaving her with less time to focus on her true passion: teaching.
Stacy has a passion for teaching and loves to make a difference in the lives of each of her students. She is so devoted that she grades tests during her prep periods and homework during lunch so that she can work with struggling students after school. When mid quarter progress reports or quarterly report cards are due, this just adds to the workload and there is simply not enough time in the day to work on everything. Stacy found herself working on weekends to provide comments for progress reports and final grades on report cards. "It was really a struggle at times. I wanted to continue to help my students after school, especially the ones who needed it most near the end of the marking period to try and get their scores up before grades were due in. I found writing a personalized comment about each student to be the most time consuming part of the whole process."

Comments are generated for each student and personalized with their name and as many unique strengths and weaknesses that need to be addressed. "I went from spending what felt like a whole day to just and hour to do my entire class. It was an amazing feeling." Stacy was able to generate beautiful, clear, and meaningful comments like these:
