How I Use It
The school that I teach had switched us to engrade last year. This webiste was suppose to keep inline with the system we use to track students. Last year there was almost a week delay before teachers would see the information about their new students. This year so far it has been faster. One of the pros about using engrade is that it does make communicating with parents much easier since they have a built in messaging service. For some reason when you log into your account and try and look at your classes it will not be on the classes you have currently. This can be a headache when trying to submit grades to be printed for report cards.
Overall this is a great tool for parents to keep track of their children. However, on the teacher side it can be bit of a hassle to work through all of the delays and formatting issues.
