Supposely our school has invested in EdLine but IF we're using it, the
only thing we're using so far is a program called GradeQuick--and I
apologize if this isn't even part of EdLine. I think they're linked or
could be. (Do I sound clueless? Yep.)
I can offer some info on GradeQuick--we use it as an online gradebook
(optional last year, mandatory this year) and also use it to do
grades/comments at the end of each grading period. Each day we have to
export attendance using the program, and it also automatically exports
our grades every time we exit the program.
Last year we were just required to use it for end of quarter and exam
grades and comments but this year, like I said, we're using it for
gradebooks. Mixed feelings on this, but it's a way that administrators
and registrars can instantly know how a given student is doing in his or
SUPPOSEDLY once this is linked up with EdLine, parents will also have
the ability to instantly know their child's grades in a class.....
I was one who resisted the use of it for a gradebook on a daily basis,
mainly because of the way it's set up--with my mixed level classes, I
have a LOT of gradebooks to keep up with. Now that we're about 3-4
weeks into the school year, I'm getting used to it, though I still liked
doing things the way I'd done them before.
