JumpRope allows any school staff to create character comments from any section of the program. There are even shortcuts to quickly enter comments while taking attendance (think common violations such as uniform, food, or electronics).
With multiple teachers contributing to anecdotal comments on every student, JumpRope quickly becomes the go-to resource for communicating about student needs and progress. Imagine being able to easily see a student's entire history of comments during a parent conference, all in one place.
In addition to collecting anecdotal information, JumpRope is aware of things like the current room and bell schedule, allowing it to automatically fill in much of the relevant data and save the user time. Later, this data helps staff identify trends and respond.
Comments can be quickly marked to notify all classroom teachers, and JumpRope will analyze the student's schedule to determine which staff members teach the student - great for letting teachers know about extended absences or suspensions.
JumpRope lets teachers and administrators assign detention to students. All detentions are attached to a related character comment which describes the behavior that led to detention, and any related followup- this paints a more complete picture, allowing for more effective problem solving.
Just like other aspects of JumpRope, each character comment can be easily printed. You can also print a summary of a student’s comments for use at a conference.
