How I Use It
JumpRope is a fantastic alternative to a paper gradebook, especially if you are able to use it in collaboration with other teachers in your building. Teachers can share attendance, behavior notes, and other data easily. This would be an especially great tool for special education teachers, who could use it to track academic and behavior goals for IEPs. In short, JumpRope is a very comprehensive tool for tracking a variety of student data.
JumpRope has some great unique features. Teachers have the option to enter their grades based on rubrics, percentages, or mastery-based language. JumpRope also gives teachers the ability to enter assessment data for multiple standards at once, and multiple attempts at the same standard, which is critical in a differentiated classroom. All of the data entered in JumpRope can be shared with other teachers and administrators in your building. There are a couple of minor drawbacks to JumpRope: it takes quite a lot of time to set up on the front end, and the multiple panes can be a bit confusing to navigate at first. Overall, this could be a great tool for curriculum planning and mastery grading in your classroom.
