Five things to love about JumpRope.

Make Standards Based Grading Practical

Schools often face a difficult decision between innovation and maintaining order. Without the proper technology to support innovation great ideas fizzle. JumpRope has got your back.
We give teachers the support they need to establish a standards-based classroom while not losing focus of what’s important: engaging students with active pedagogy, purposeful planning, and authentic learning experiences.

Communicate Mastery Effectively

JumpRope can generate anything from a standard report card to a comprehensive report based entirely on standards and growth. To ease the transition from old to new-school, hybrid report options help students and families learn the new format, and learn to love standards-based grading.

Simple, Reliable, Fast

Teachers wear a lot of hats; instructor, mentor, mediator, hall monitor. With JumpRope you don’t have to put on your techie hat as well. Our intuitive interface is easy for anyone to learn and leaves no room for error. We know that technology is at its best when it becomes an extension of ourselves, supplementing and filling in for that which we lack.

Empower the Students

With honest, transparent and timely feedback about their progress, students begin to connect success with learning instead of success with grades. Students who are accustomed to failing begin to see areas of strength and weakness that are honest and manageable. Students who are accustomed to excelling can identify areas where they can still improve. Teachers can tailor planning and instruction to their students’ needs with more precision and purpose than ever.

Transparent Data is Helpful Data

JumpRope eliminates the guesswork when it comes to evaluation: is it more helpful to be a C-student or a student who needs to improve in their ability to "make conclusions by analyzing context clues?" Students are hungry to improve, and too often they're never given the necessary feedback to do so. That’s why JumpRope frees up teachers and administrators to do what they do best: create, inspire, and propel.

    Standards-Based Grading: How One Physical Education Teacher Made the Transition

    Prior to 2015, I had a very rough idea what standards-based grading was all about. My experiences were based solely on what I had heard from teacher friends who themselves were making the transition. Many of these colleagues were not given a clear understanding as to why and how to make the transition, leaving them stressed out. When the day came for my unified arts colleagues and me to take that leap, we too found that we were expected to dive right in and make it work. More+
