PowerSchool Group LLC
In the classroom it is very well suited. For classroom teachers, and for school systems in general. It is appropriate in this capacity because it creates a streamlined sense of communication for all stakeholders: teachers, parents, students, and administration. It makes parent meetings very easy, it makes interventions for students easy, and it helps administration keep tabs on overall progress

TeacherEase is very user friendly for teachers to enter grades. It is more simplified and fewer steps than most student management programs. Other teachers find no problems following a few simple steps to enter grades. Other programs have multiple steps with multiple screens to complete the task of entering grades.

  • Reports : are often difficult to figure out what report to run to get the information needed.
  • Posting grades : are sometimes confusing could be done in fewer steps.
  • Synching with other programs such as google classroom. This feature is difficult to use.

They are very responsive to the issues that we have and follow through with their assistance. Having a live assist that is available when our teachers need it is essential too. They also seem to listen to suggestions on making improvements and have been transparent with us when renovations are done.

I have used markbook and gradebook. Each system had good features that were slightly different but the fact that this one is web based and accessible makes it the best of the 3 I have used. The learning curve to using the program is similar to the other 2 and overall has allowed me to save time reporting to students and parents.

TeacherEase provides so many integrations of student management into one seamless program. Other programs are just one facet of the functions TeacherEase provides. TeacherEase encompasses so many of the features that other vendors provide as standalone products.

  • The district was able to reduce time-consuming training that other student management software needed in order to use them. TeacherEase was much more user friendly.
  • TeacherEase combined the student information as well as the gradebook into the same software. This alleviated having to have multiple software vendors or pay for multiple modules to operate.
  • TeacherEase is userfriendly and alleviates the constant need for tech support.
