Next-Generation Competency-Based Grading: Standards, Done Right.
Student competency on standards shouldn't be measured just once each term; students should have opportunities to demonstrate progress towards mastery and add evidence to their e-portfolios every time they complete an assignment.
And students should be able to move ahead when ready or spend longer practicing when they struggle. MIDAS's grade book makes it easy to differentiate instruction and manage individualized learning plans for every student.
Grading Standards, Made Easy.Spend Less Time Grading.
Most teachers pale at the thought of grading every student on tens of standards once per term, much less on every assignment. We get it. That's why we've made associating standards with assignments simple.
We've also incorporated rubrics into each grading screen so teachers never have to go searching.
And, we've put extra care into the user interface, ensuring easy data entry so teachers can spend more time teaching and less time grading.
Rubrics.Consistent Best Practices.
Rubrics ensure consistent grading for all students for the same work and help teachers to explain why students earned the grades they did.
MIDAS has incorporated rubrics into each grading screen, making it easy for teachers to adopt best practices.
Further, MIDAS encourages teachers to provide narrative comments to support assessed scores whenever relevant.
Analytics.Every Class, At A Glance.
So many students, so little time. With built-in analytics, like histograms showing grade distribution and automatic calculation of mean, median, and standard deviation, teachers always know how their classes are doing at a glance.
Whole-Classroom Workflows.Do Work Once.
We know teachers who teach algebra 1st, 3rd, and 5th period grade work for all three classes at once. That's why our gradebook is designed to help teachers focus on their whole classroom and not just one slice.
