iPad App Lets Teachers Access PowerSchool Gradebook

Pearson recently launched a free gradebook tool designed for iPad. Called PowerTeacher Mobile, the app is designed to integrate with Pearson's student information system, PowerSchool.

PowerTeacher Mobile allowed teachers to access the gradebook features of PowerSchool to record grades and take notes on individual students and assignments. It also lets teachers create assignments, work with groups (for differentiated instruction), and manage rosters.

Other features include:

  • Integrated support for e-mailing students or parents from within the app;
  • The ability to display alerts;
  • Support for viewing student photos and other personal information; and
  • A built-in help tool.

PowerTeacher Mobile is available now as a free app from the App Store. It requires the PowerSchool student information system. It can be accessed directly here.
