Improved Student Gradebook and Online Student Reporting

As we mentioned last week, we have made some notable changes to how our online tools function. We made online student reporting easier, added functions that made testing students simpler, and redesigned our professional development site for better usability. As of February 1, 2018, the following elements on our site were updated:

  • Autosave Function on Assessments (click link for our recent blog on this)
  • Student Gradebook and More Comprehensive Reports
  • Professional Development Usability Updates

As a teacher, you know how important accurate reporting is. You also know how important it is for your students’ parents to be able to see how their kids are doing. With our new and improved student gradebook and reporting tools, you can do the following:

  • See a clearer picture of student progress.
  • Measure the engagement of your students with our online tools.
  • Share your students’ progress with their parents.
  • See student engagement with online tools skyrocket!

Clearer Picture of Student Progress

When you select your class on the right hand side of your screen, you will see your list of students like usual. Just click on the Reports link in the top right corner to access the reports for your class:

Alternatively, you can access all of your reports for all of your classes by clicking on the Reports tab at the top of any page once you have logged into your Studies Weekly online teacher account:

For your reports, you have two tabs at the top: 1) SLI (Student Learning Index) Report; and 2) Utilization Report. You have the option to export student report data to Excel in CSV format or view in browser by selecting Search. Either view of the report will give you a clear picture of what your students are working on and how they’re progressing.

Measure Your Students’ Engagement

With the new online student reporting tools we have available,  you can see all of the students’ activities in each of your classes on one screen . This tool will give you a snapshot of which of your students are participating heavily and which ones might need a little more encouragement.

With this tool, teachers also have the ability to view from their own computer screens which test questions their students might be struggling with, and which answers they might have just skipped over.

Share Student Progress with Parents

One of the great joys of teaching is meeting parents. With the new online student reporting tools, you can export student data to Excel and share with parents individually. For a student who is struggling, seeing a snapshot of student engagement may be just what their parents need.

Online Student Reporting for More Engagement

These updates were rolled out and improved on over years of dedicated teaching experience. Many of our staff are former educators who have put a lot of thought and significant input into these tools. We do this to make sure they are useful teacher tools and valuable parent tools as well.

As students engage with our online tool, their engagement and interest in learning will increase. Our hope is that the online gradebook and online student reporting features will make teaching easier. We hope to see you online soon!

Autosave Function for Online K-6 Testing Available

At Studies Weekly, we get a lot of feedback from you, our valued customers. The other day, one of our teachers reached out on Facebook to ask whether the autosave function would be available soon for online K-6 testing. We want that teacher to know — like we want all of you to know — that we’ve been listening.

As a direct result of your feedback, we have begun to roll out a few notable changes that might interest you. By February 1, 2018, we will have updated the following elements on our site:

  • Autosave Function on Assessments
  • Student Gradebook and More Comprehensive Reports
  • Professional Development Usability Updates

Over the next few weeks, we will have more video tutorials available to help you navigate these changes. In the meantime, we will be providing a brief explanation here on our blog. For this week, we’ll briefly go over the new autosave function on assessments when going through our online K-6 testing.

Autosave Function

For students, the assessment screen will look the same. All of your students should be familiar with logging in to their student accounts by now. However, if you have not set up student accounts, visit this blog for a brief rundown of what to expect and some short instructions for getting it setup for your class.

You know the value of this update if you’ve had students taking an assessment when the power or internet goes out. Now, the system will autosave assessments upon event. In other words, the system will autosave responses every time a student types text in a field or selects an answer.


Please note that we will have the Autosave feature available with the next update on February 1, 2018.

As always, if you have any questions or feature requests, know that we’re listening. We want to hear from you. Go ahead and leave us a comment below, reach out on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter), or give us a call at (866) 311-8734.
