When it comes to understanding and implementing the Common Core standards, most of the talk has been about how curriculum will change. Well, there’s another aspect that will have to adapt to the new standards: the humble old gradebook. For instance, the gradebook section of SunGuard’s eSchoolPlus Student Information System has changed with the times to include a new main interface that can show a variety of items at a glance and streamline some tasks as well as a more personalized approach to education. The new software can better share the student’s activities and progress with parents and administrators. A big step forward, the software is a free upgrade for current users, and includes the ability for teachers to look at how the class is doing on certain sub topics, or do it for just a small group.
