Edsby gives you great gradebook in every class
Edsby provides an easy-to-use and powerful gradebook which is automatically integrated into every class you teach. The gradebook is a secure area only available to you, the teacher.
Edsby helps you track assignments and marks with ease
Inside the gradebook, you can track assignments and marks. When you create new assignments or homework, a new assessment column will automatically be created in the gradebook. As you go through each step from receiving the assignment through entering the marks, Edsby is there to help. And when you are done, with a single click you can send the marks out to students and parents.
Edsby links assignments right to student (and parent!) calendars
One of the greatest things with Edsby is the link between an assessment in the gradebook and what students and parents see in their calendars. When you create an assessment, Edsby automatically copies it to the calender of students in the class. When students hand an assignment in, Edsby will show the student and the parent that it was received on time. If you mark a particular student overdue or incomplete, Edsby will flag it in the student’s calendar and notify the parents. If they hand an assessment in late, Edsby will automatically track how late it was and display it for you. And finally, you have the option of closing an assessment to further hand-ins.
Edsby is always watching the marks
As you enter marks, Edsby will automatically calculate averages and mark distributions for every student and every assignment. Plus, he shows failing and missed marks so that at-risk students are instantly highlighted.
Support for a wide variety of marking and evaluation schemes
The Edsby gradebook makes it easy for you to use your preferred marking and evaluation scheme, including multi-way evaluation of single assessments (e.g. a single assessment might consist of four marks for Knowledge, Thinking, Communication & Application). Plus, our powerful Edsbyform technology allows your school or district to implement customized marking schemes.
Edsby tracks history on every mark
From submission to final grade, Edsby tracks what happens to a grade. Every time you enter a mark in the gradebook, Edsby will save that in the Mark History. You can even makes notes on a per-mark basis, to remind you why certain marks were changed.
Edsby helps with attendance too
The Edsby gradebook also offers powerful and easy-to-use attendance tracking. At a glance you can see attendance records, as well as seeing which kids have planned absences. Real-time data analytics alert you to trends you need to be aware of.
Edsby helps tracks anecdotal & formative assessments
The Edsby gradebook provides very powerful tools for making anecdotal and formative assessments. Plus, you can use the camera on your mobile phone to easily capture student work for future assessment.
Edsby helps you monitor and indicate which kids are at risk
Each student in your gradebook has a Subjective Performance Indicator (SPI). You use your professional judgement to set this indicator, giving you an easy way to track which kids are at risk. Edsby shares the SPI with other teachers, your principal and also with the student’s parents.
One click and Edsby gives you an in-depth Perspective
Clicking on any of the kids in the Edsby gradebook will bring up a full Perspective page, detailing how the student is doing in the class. You get full analytics, scores in all of the learning categories and strands, and details on the marks in every assignment. Plus, the Perspective page allows you to save private notes on the student as well as messages and communication logs associated with the student and their parents.
