Experience a Window into the Classroom
FreshGrade’s digital portfolio allows students and teachers to easily capture authentic learning experiences and facilitates a tight feedback loop for a deeper conversation about learning. Students develop ownership of their learning through self-reflection and a clear view of their progress over weeks, months, even years. When a student changes teachers, classes, or schools within a district, their portfolio moves seamlessly with them.
Does your school use standards-based assessment? Activities-based grading with a percentage grade? Or perhaps you have teachers doing project-based learning or a mastery based approach? FreshGrade’s gradebook includes eight different assessment modes, supporting both formative and summative assessment, or you can create your own custom scale and share it across the school or district!
FreshGrade is perfect for busy working families. And thanks to Google Translate, it’s exceptionally helpful for non-English-speaking families, too. FreshGrade’s communication system provides parents with easy access to their child’s learning and progress in real time, ongoing communication with teachers, and Google Translate to convert messages between English and their preferred language.
With FreshGrade, administrators gain a window into the classroom. You’ll understand not only what teachers are teaching, but also how they are teaching, and how students are responding. You’ll have a clear view of progress on your learning initiatives.
