Have you ever forgotten to contact a parent when a student's grade or homework efforts fall? This tool will automate that process of notifying parents, students, and other important individuals whenever a student's grade falls below your standards.
Send email reports to students automatically by setting up grade reporting criteria.
For instance, you can create a report that automatically is emailed to students and/or other contacts when a particular grade drops below a 75% or 80%. This grade-book allows you to add classes, grades, students, categories, and weights in an easy to use and read format. Reporting options allow you to setup criteria for sending out automatic grade emails based on students grades. Setting up email options is as easy as entering your email address and password into Email Settings, then choosing the options for when to send emails. Emails can be sent manually (you would have to click a SEND EMAILS button when you're ready to send emails) or automatically (setup a time and day of the week to send emails on a weekly basis with the help of Windows Scheduler). Students, parents, and any other contacts will be emailed automatically and notified when students fall below the reporting criteria (or everyone can be emailed regardless of grades). This grade-book is very flexible and can be used in either Elementary, Secondary, or Post Secondary classrooms. You can also set yourself up as a contact for every student in order to receive emails in your inbox every time a student's grade falls below the reporting criteria you specified.
