There’s also a new version of the app to be solely used on the iPad called iGrade for Teacher HD.
iGrade for Teacher has great ease of use! When using your new grading system, you are working with five tabs.
iGrade for Teacher allows you to add each student you teach – eventually making a log of all your students. You can add a student’s name, the grade they’re getting in each subject you teach them, notes and personal information about the student, along with their primary and secondary contacts and their information!

iGrade for Teacher allows you to filter through your statistics and analytics giving you full knowledge of your student’s GPA, weighted average results, total number of tests graded, total number of test given per class, subject, or category and the total number of tardies and absences of each student. You can filter by each class, each subject or even through a certain time period. If you have a student whose grades have really dropped recently, you can do a time filter to figure out the time frame of this big change in their grades. This would help you figure out with the student’s parents if maybe something has happened in this time frame to create this change.
The settings’ tab is where you can add each class you teach, the subjects taught and categories such as homework, quizzes and tests.
Lastly, the tutorials’ tab offers 18 different tutorials on things like “Reviewing the Statistics”, “Keeping Track of Attendance” and “Adjust my settings”. These tutorials simply teach you how to use iGrade for Teacher better! Allowing you to create your customized grade book! Because you can create your own classes, categories and subjects, iGrade for Teacher can be used as a tool not only for teachers but also for coaches, educators, professors, tutors, trainers or student teachers!
You can forget about bringing all the folders and notepads to your parent teacher meetings. All you need is your iPhone. Simply pull up the student’s name to show their grades and attendance records to the parents, along with any helpful notes you added about them. iGrade for Teacher was developed for teachers by other teachers and you can tell!
