Pearson Releases Latest Version of PowerTeacher 1.5(2)

Pearson’s PowerTeacher 1.5 connects the teacher Web portal with a Web-based grade book that enables teachers to instantly access and report key student data.
The software is now available for integrated use with Chancery SMS Pearson’s SIS solution designed specifically to meet the needs of larger K-12 districts, in addition to its use with PowerSchool Premier.
The upgraded version of PowerTeacher blends functionality with a focus on user adoption and experience. PowerTeacher 1.5 introduces more than 30 unique features and usability enhancements suggested by teachers and administrators, including a new application for distributing content links, “What If?” final grade calculator, a customized grade scale, off-line capabilities, the ability to export and import scores, and group filtering.
“With more than 5,000 SIS users each day, our district relies on the quality, stability, and accuracy of PowerTeacher 1.5 to make timely decisions that impact student performance,” said Janet Toohey, director of Information Systems for the Fairbanks (AK) North Star Borough School District. “Today, our teachers are more self-reliant than ever, which is a direct result of the centralization and usability of Pearson’s software."
