PowerSchool Registration collects all the data we need and more. It's easy to go from initial application to completed enrollment. I love how the software will help keep you organized with where the application is in the process, so you can quickly see at what stage you are at with processing a student's enrollment. You do have to be strategic and conscious about what you put on the form. It can quickly be a very long form. I can't think of any instance where this software would not significantly increase the efficiency and accuracy of a district.

It's a great system for storing student information and extracting it into usable data. If you're looking for a robust report creation system, though, it's not the best choice unless you have someone skilled with programming languages.

Pros
PowerSchool Group LLC
  • It is able to write back to the student information system with a matching process that ensures the accuracy of student data.
  • It tracks the data and the changes, who made the changes, and when the data was imported.
  • It organizes the process. It creates a system that relies on checks and balances, and causes you to re-evaluate your process.

  • The ease of data exports into easy Excel Spreadsheets is one of my favorite features. It allows me the ability to quickly see data and arrange it for ease of use of our teachers, administrative staff, and stakeholders.
  • Administrative Plus can be easily customized to display student record data in the most relevant way for our organization.
  • The customer service support team is always quick to respond, and extremely helpful. I can reach them through user forums, emails, or a phone call, and I know they will always provide a fast and thorough response.

Rediker Software
  • Their reports feature needs to be more user friendly. They use their own personal code to write reports, and it's not very user friendly to the average person. It would be much nicer to have a WYSIWYG editor where I could create what I wanted without having to know their special language.
  • The system could use a more modern face lift, and perhaps a more intuitive interface.
  • The sync process between the Parent, Teacher, and Student Portals is slow. Data should be continually synced between the two in real time, instead of initiated by the user.

Support Rating

Overall support is excellent. The people are amazing. They have played with different ways of giving the best support, meaning a dedicated specialist vs. email vs. tracking sheet, etc., which was a little frustrating going through those changes. Still, I appreciate all their efforts in finding what works best for their customers. They listen to their customers and make changes.

I think powerschool excels at more simple enrollment tasks however Moodle does a better job being flexible and catering to anything a professor could want to do.

We were using Aeries for our student information system prior to Rediker, and it was a messy database with too much redundancy, making it difficult to extract the data you were looking for from the system.

Return on Investment
PowerSchool Group LLC
  • If a student has been in the school district before, leaves, and then returns, a list of the students' previous teachers is kept in the system.
  • Easy to enter and add students with minimum information.

  • A less expensive alternative as far as Student Information Systems go.
