Pros: As a parent, being able to view my students' grades, attendance, and schedule in real time is a huge asset. Being able to view on mobile is even better

Cons: The initial sign in....there's no way to enter the school district except to scroll all the way down the list. Used to be able to type in the first letter of the district and it would go right to that letter for selection

This program should not be used in any school

Comments: Okay So I am going to update my review. They say they are working on improving it however, they changed a few features and created new problems. You still cannot see the entire seating chart on the screen which any and every teacher knows is critical. Second; now the class roster has students alphabetized in a different order than the grading list which causes entry issues when keying in grades from a hard copy generated from the class roster; it still takes at least four or five steps to do anything ie: in grade pro I could print class rosters in 30 seconds or less but in eschools you have to print each class separately. The newest yet not new as it was supposedly corrected is the attendance. I am constantly finding students who are marked absent by our attendance office yet the student is sitting in class so I have to take the time to contact attendance and have them correct it as I cannot override anything entered by them and they often tell me that they did not enter it. What a pain when you have 5 or 6 classes and 150 students. School attendance records need to be accurate. Our attendance Tech came to see and also report the problem. The designer's of this program obviously have spent no time in a classroom and failed to consult anyone who has.

Warning do not purchase this product for your district or your teachers will hate you

Comments: Our district purchased this product for our district four years ago and I used it for one semester until I found out how inaccurate it is. Then I double entered grades for the next semester to compare eschools and gradepro. The next two used gradepro and uploaded letter grades only into echools. Last year the union sold us out so we are forced to only use eschools and we have to enter the scores not just letter grades. It takes me three times longer to do my grades in eschools it is inaccurate. The few good features they had they changed. The math is incorrect, it is visually garbage to see in your screen. You cannot see your entire seating chart at once and it was obviously not created by anyone who spent anytime in a classroom. Most if not all task require at least three steps and there is not lock to secure grades once they are entered and it is easy to overwrite a grade with an incorrect one. It now takes me at least three times longer to enter grades. It think actual hand calculations would be faster than having to use this system.
