Really like the appearance of reporting and the web booking.

Gradelink SIS

Gradelink is easy to use and keeps students and parents informed of the student's progress in a class. It is an excellent tool to foster communication between the teacher and the parent. Gradelink is very user-friendly and offers a variety of tools to assist the teacher in grading assignments. The teacher may select between points or percentages as well as provide a narrative for the parent to see what a particular assignment encompassed.

Pros

ACTIVE Education

  • Separation of payer and the person attending the activity. For example: children incur charges, but the parent is responsible for paying them.
  • Fast - in our old system there was a delay while customers waited for the system to respond.

Gradelink SIS

  • Ease of use. The interface is very user-friendly, and not intimidating to those who are not IT specialists.
  • Data Management. We use Gradelink to keep all our student records current and available.

Cons

ACTIVE Education

  • I really like the look and feel of ActiveNet Reporting, but it isn't extremely customizable. Maybe there is something I am missing, but other employees have shared that same feedback.
  • It would be nice to have the system synchronize with other software we use. (EMS, StarRez, etc.) When planning conferences, we currently have hotel guests and registration that we would like to share information for through each system. Currently it is just double data entry.
  • Would like to be able to add more resources and details to a room booking and have the corresponding departments be notified of the order/track inventory.

Gradelink SIS

  • I wish I had a better system for tracking student specific notes (behavioral).
  • I wish the admin platform and the teacher platform weren't so different, so I could learn more from teachers (who use Gradelink even more than I do).

Alternatives Considered

ACTIVE Education

ACTIVE Network allowed: grouping of classes, good interface, allowed importing of records, complex payment plans, per class fee structures, user fees, and trial classes.

Gradelink SIS

Gradelink SIS has a lot more helpful and useful features for teachers, admin, and staff. First, it has lesson plans and state standards integration which is a great help for teachers. With this feature, teachers don't have to worry about standards being in place for each lesson plan.

Return on Investment

ACTIVE Education

  • Not sure yet.
  • It is newer to me and my department.
  • Double data entry which is just extra man hours.
