As opposed to a regular gradebook, every single grade and report is tied to a learning goal or standard. This crucial element makes student learning the first-class citizen in our gradebook, instead of averages on assignments. It will change the way you - and students - approach teaching and learning!
The interface to the gradebook will instantly make sense to any teacher that has used traditional software, so learning curves won't get in the way of good teaching. The interface adds familiar visuals to help teachers gauge student progress at-a-glance.
JumpRope can generate anything from a standard report card to a formative report based entirely on standards and growth - or anything in between! If your school is working to change the language used in student feedback, consider one of our hybrid report options that help students and families learn the new format.
If students complete a paper, project, or test, chances are that you'll get evidence of mastery on more than one standard. In JumpRope you can enter more than one score per assessment, which allows you to gather data and give feedback in terms of mastery.
An important question is raised when grades are given in terms of student mastery: what do you do when work is missing or late? JumpRope's gradebook lets you track mastery of "Character" or "Work Habits" goals much like you would academic goals, but they can count differently in overall grades.
Do you prefer to enter scores as percentages, on a rubric scale, or as developing/meets/exceeds? These options - and so many more! - are available to help make sure that your feedback to students is in line with your assessment philosophy.
