How I Use It
ClassMax is a teacher tool to document student progress, accommodations, and behavior. It is a great way to show students and parents specifically what standards students have accomplished and what standards they need to work on. I can easily document accommodations at the time they are used in class. I can also document positive and negative behavior and consequences as they occur in class and reward students.
When I first began to use ClassMax, I was amazed at how easy it was to use. For years, I have been asked to document student progress on state standards, but I never had a tool to make that easy until ClassMax. Student and class details can be uploaded quickly at the beginning of the year. Accommodations and state standards can also be easily uploaded. After setup, it is easy to select daily standards, accommodations, or behaviors to track. Teachers can track these items individually or by class. ClassMax also allows teachers to create groups for tracking these details. The best part though is that I can quickly create reports to email to parents, guidance, or the dean. ClassMax is an easy tool to incorporate as the teacher is moving around the classroom observing students. With a couple of clicks, documentation is complete. This program is thoughtfully designed to help busy teachers reflect on their students' progress and their teaching to make adjustments to improve student learning and their own teaching practice.
