Kickboard eliminates the need to maintain a traditional assignment-based gradebook and separate mastery tracking spreadsheets.
Go one level deeper than an average gradebook
Teachers use Kickboard to record scores on everything from exit slips to quizzes and tests to interim assessments. Because each assessment score is aligned to the skills and standards it covers, Kickboard gives you the ability to measure academic strengths and gaps in real-time instead of waiting for quarterly or end-of-year assessment results. As more assessments are recorded, Kickboard creates a reliable record of academic mastery over time so you can plan with confidence.
Report Card Building
When families see the customized report cards you print with Kickboard, they know more than just a letter grade. With multiple templates to choose from and the ability to include a section for character development, you have control over how you share progress with families.
Assessment Data Analysis
Kickboard conveniently provides the detailed information teachers need to plan reteaching. Knowing that a student earned a C on a math test doesn’t show what a student has actually learned. Knowing that a student mastered Adding and Subtracting Fractions but scored a 50% on Solving Word Problems with Percents enables teachers to make more informed decisions. Schools that use scanning software like Remark or EduSoft can import answer sheet data into Kickboard for powerful question-level and distractor analysis.
Flexible gradebook settings
Kickboard’s gradebook settings are easily customized. You determine the list of assessment categories, grading scale, and which types of assessments “count” towards a grade and which don’t. This means that every assessment can be stored in Kickboard for analysis and planning, even if you don’t want it to factor into a grade.
