A cloud-based school management software with real-time grade and assignment management capabilities.
ThinkWave provides a free gradebook program for solo teachers. This includes a flexible grading method, custom reports, and the ability to post grades online for students and parents.
The free version of the gradebook does include ads. An ad-free version (their Premium Gradebook) is available for $49.95/teacher/year. Price discounts exist for the more teachers that require access.
It takes a minute to figure out, but then easy breezy! IMO much easier to maneuver and easier for teachers, students and parents to see all assignments and grades in one shot—unlike Google Classroom which is difficult to see a clear view of assignments and grades.
Clear and concise for teachers, parents and students
I wish there was an app
We used to record everything by hand or with manual spreadsheets. Semester grades could take two weeks to compile and submit to students. Now it only takes a few minutes once grades are completed online. This has freed up hours for staff to focus on students rather than paperwork. This includes transcripts, schedules, attendance, and more.
We’ve been able to consolidate dozens of spreadsheets and tasks into one central location. It’s streamlined our workflow around student scheduling and student records. It’s brought grades, assignments, attendance and other records into one location. Student feedback is instant and we can generate progress reports and track missing assignments.
