Overall Satisfaction with Schoology

Schoology is used across our entire organization (Byron Center Public Schools). We use Schoology as a platform for teaching, communication with students, assigning and collecting assignments, and administering tests.

This addresses many business "problems" -- by engaging in one program, district wide, for communicating with and teaching students, we are able to better reach our students and their individual needs.
  • User-Friendly: Schoology is easy to navigate for both teachers, administration, and students. This is important because this helps users get the most out of their Schoology experience without running into frustrating mishaps.
  • Several Features: Schoology is multi-faceted. Teachers can assign tests and assignments, as well as post class updates, polls, and videos. Students are able to be enrolled in several classes at once so they have one spot as reference for all of their classes
  • Differentiated Instruction: Teachers are able to individually assign assignments and tests to students/classes, making differentiated instruction easy.
  • The prime version of Schoology has some kinks that could be worked out with linking to a Gradebook - the grades do not always transfer over, and in the event a teacher changes them, you have to manually enter the grade in the gradebook.
  • Schoology Update font options - It would be great to be able to highlight and change the color of fonts right in the Schoology update menu
  • This is hard to quantify given that our data is not directly related to or as a result of Schoology. It does, however, undoubtedly contribute to our high test scores because of how accessible all of our learning content is through Schoology.
Schoology has far more options than any of the above three as far as communication, dissemination of information, and assignment and test updates and tracking. Moodle was fairly primitive in its design; Blackboard is a bit clunky in its use, and, while Google Classroom is innovative, there are far more educational options for differentiation and organization through Schoology.
Schoology is well-suited for any educational environment where students have access to technology in school. Out students are one-to-one, so every student has a computer, so Schoology is a great platform for everything we do. It would not be as well-suited if technology was not integrated into a school or classroom on a daily basis.
