Penn Manor just received the new version of the Sapphire Gradebook. Here’s the scoop and change details from K12 Systems:
The main focus of our face-lift was to consolidate all of the buttons that appear on many of the screens and reduce the amount of “hunting around” that new users had to go through to find the elements that they were looking for in our software. To accomplish this, we have incorporated a menu structure to the top of every page that takes the place of the vast majority of on-screen buttons. Additionally, we’ve added a toolbar with all of the commonly used functions, like saving, on it.
In addition to the cosmetic and button changes, a few new features have been added. Two awesome new teacher tools include reports that print a student’s full schedule and an easy to print year-to-date student attendance portfolio.
The new gradebook is available now. New class rosters will not be loaded into the 2007-20080 year until early August however teachers may still login to the 06-07 school year to preview the updates.
