My school introduced gradequick about 2 years ago and using it was optional. I held out till this year when we were told we had to use it. Unfortunately, it's grading scale (which is set to the district's) does not match my own. For a final grade, somone who should be getting a B- might end up with a C- or D. Our tech person is trying to work that problem out....so until then, I am forced to just enter a final grade that can be exported to MMS. Edline, I'm sure is in the future. I do like some of the features of gradeQuick, but I would rather do all my grades on paper.....it's less frustrating right now!

Do you think someone who individualizes student courses of study AND point values and deadlines will have to straightjacket the curriculum to fit Edline? Feel free to reply to my e-address if you prefer. Thanks again. J.
Sorry I didn't answer this with my last email.
If anyone is flexible, it is me. I grade by point values. We use GradeQuick to do our grading and I can weight the grades any way I like. If I use a point system, GradeQuick will convert it to a percent for the school. My portfolio class is graded entirely differently as these students are in independent study and they need to complete work each quarter, but every one is working on something different. Gradequick can do this.
Where Edline comes in, is that we EXPORT our grades from GradeQuick to Edline. I don't believe Edline has a grading program of its own. It is a site that is accessed by password. I have a page for every class I teach under my name and i am in control of everything on it. I am the only one who can edit my pages. Parents, by password, can access my web pages.
Hope this helps.
