Freshgrade: Making Learning Visible

Freshgrade allows teachers and students to add visual and audio evidence of learning to a secure digital portfolio. In addition to the portfolio, teachers can use the Gradebook to track student progress and create reports. When marks are posted in the Gradebook they are attached to each student's evidence for that activity, allowing students and parents to keep up to date on student achievement.

There are many benefits to using Freshgrade in your classroom, including:

Stay Organized - The Gradebook is the organizational backbone of the portfolio. It also allows you to keep all of your marks alongside the evidence of learning and share them with students and parents immediately. Filters allow you to adjust how you view the Gradebook and give you the control you need to make it work for you.

Increased communication with Parents - when parents access their child's portfolio they have a window into your classroom. They are able to see, at a glance, some of the activities their child has done, as well as the mark they received, immediately. Parents are then able to talk with their child about it or contact you right away if they have a concern.

Show student learning - Learning is very diverse and Freshgrade allows us to show that. Sometimes we assess students' knowledge through conversation or activities that can't be shown on paper. Freshgrade portfolios allow us to capture that evidence in the form of images, videos, or audio recordings.
