Gradebook updated to support standards-based academic evaluation

Skyward announces an enhancement to the Gradebook module of its Student Management Suite that gives educators the ability to measure student achievement on national and state curriculum standards.

The Skyward Gradebook now allows educators to connect academic standards to individual questions within online assessments, allowing them to evaluate students’ understanding of standards and benchmarks. Through the Gradebook, teachers can keep students and parents informed of how the homework aligns to the standards and areas of academic shortfalls that may need more attention.

Within the Gradebook, Skyward offers the District Assessment Tracker, which allows teachers to dissect a district assessment, breaking it down by question or benchmark. Teachers can also view students who did not meet the benchmark on a particular assignment or assignment question.
