This tool is a life saver for report card comment writing! It automatically creates meaningful, personalized comments for each student. All you have to do is enter the students' names, class name, gender, and grade, and then select a few (up to 6) characteristics that describe that student. That's it! The report card generator will automatically create a well-written, narrative comment based on your parameters for each student. There are over 500 comments pre-loaded into the generator, plus you have the ability to add your own categories and comments.
-over 500 individual report card comments in over 45 categories included
-Endless combinations and unique narrative comments automatically generated for each student
-add up to 200 students on one spreadsheet
-get unique comments for each student...even when you are entering in the same parameters. When choosing a category for a student (i.e. disorganized) the comment generator will randomly select from several comments to make that point. This prevents students from receiving comments that are the same even when they are similar students!
-ability to specify class or grade so that comments reference class name. This is great for upper level teachers that teach different courses. For instance, if Tommy is in your Algebra class and Susan is in your Geometry class, the comment generator will know to say "Tommy is off to a great start in Algebra', but for Susan, it may read 'Susan is doing well in Geometry'
-copy comments at the end of the marking period with the click of a button to have as a reference for the following grading period comments.
-ability to change language of marking periods (i.e. quarter, semester, 6-weeks) as well as timing of marking periods (first, middle, last) so that comments flow nicely and use accurate verbiage. For example, if it's the last marking period, comments may end with phrases like 'have a great summer' or 'best of luck next year'
-ability to edit comments after they have been automatically generated to add a personal touch
-ability to add your own categories and comments to the generator so that you can use them over and over again in future comments
-ability to delete or edit comments and categories that are included with the program but may not applicable to your class
-New IMPORT feature for users who have purchased previous versions. The import feature allows you to import custom comments and categories that may have been added in an older version.

Test it out first by downloading the free preview file
Note: The preview file is a demo only and does not contain all of the features of the full version
This file is active for the 2018-2019 school year only (beginning immediately) and will expire on June 29, 2019. A new version will need to be purchased every year. After June 29, you will still have access to all of your spreadsheet and existing comment data, but new comments will no longer be automatically generated. An import feature is available so that you can import custom comments from older versions to be used in new comment creation.
This is a .zip file; however, it contains a Microsoft Excel product, so be sure that you have a DESKTOP VERSION of Microsoft Excel to run it. (Macros must be enabled, so check with your IT department or test out the demo version if you are unsure if you have the rights to enable macros).
*MICROSOFT EXCEL ONLINE WILL NOT WORK
**Microsoft Excel for Mac 2008 will not work (2004 or 2011 should work in theory, but this product has not been tested on a MAC. Try out the preview file first to be sure)
**To be certain that you meet the technical requirements, download the preview file. If you can open and use that file, you should be good to go.
