The cross-platform GradeQuick 9 from Jackson Corp. (www.jacksoncorp.com) makes the process of entering and analyzing grades a less time-intensive task, freeing up teachers’ schedules for more important jobs such as instruction. GradeQuick offers seamless integration with third-party student information systems, customized reports and report cards, attendance management at the classroom level, and seating charts with student photos. GradeQuick was created to look and feel like a paper-based gradebook that lets teachers customize the main screen to display only the information they need, such as test scores, averages, statistics, full-length names or student nicknames. In addition, teachers can use the program to prepare, view and print daily lesson plans.
