Question Of The Week: How About Those Progress Reports?

By now, in theory at least, everyone's schedules and class rosters should be settling out, hiring should be almost done, and the real business of schools should be well underway.  That's why this week teachers have to submit progress reports that will give parents and kids a sense of how the school year is going so far. So, how is it going?  [UPDATE:  Lots of good comments, but this one from Crane HS might be the best.]

  • You actually can use keystrokes for some of the grading in IMPACT. My issue with grades is that our Week 5 exams are next week because of PLAN/EXPLORE testing.

    When the grade roster comes up, click on the drop-down menu for the first student and click on the grade. Then hit ENTER and it'll drop down to the next menu and all you have to do is type the letter, hit ENTER again and it'll drop down to the next student.

    As for the rest of it, sure it's annoying but it's what we have to deal with right now. I too am a little tired of all the complaining about IMPACT. I think overall its a decent system. I actually haven't had more than trivial problems with it. When you put any new program into the field there's going to be kinks and bugs. No software is perfect.
