Develop Student Ownership by Making Learning Visible

With FreshGrade, teachers and students capture authentic learning experiences in a digital portfolio to communicate learning and to show growth over time. Teachers use the FreshGrade gradebook for both formative and summative assessments.

Visible Learning

Capture Evidence of Authentic Learning

Students and teachers use smartphones or tablets to capture and post to the digital portfolio the artifacts, conversations, and observations about learning that happen every day.

Document the Learning Process

For a true picture of growth, have students upload drafts and revisions, showing the “messy bits” of the learning process along the way to the polished, finished product.
