Pros: A completely free grading software for teachers. You can assign seating charts, fill out grade books, and more.

Cons: The way the grade book is organized could be done a lot more intuitive and faster. It takes a while to enter your assignments.

Overall: A free grade book and lots of saved time.

Pros: Learnboost is slicker and easier to use than any other option: easier than learning management software and certainly than a spreadsheet.

Cons: The functionality to share grades with students has some UX oddities about confirmations and such. But that's minor.

Pros: Easy to set up

Cons: NOT USUABLE! Cant log back in after leave, no student emails to set up accounts. Reset password does not work Horrible DO NOT WASTE TIME

Overall: Signed up and now can't log back in. Sent off for password reset 2 weeks ago and still no reset link. Not sure what the deal is. Also no emails sent to students to log in, not usable!

Pros: It was very easy to set up classes and enter grades

Cons: The company does not respond to requests for help when there are problems, like students cannot access their grades when they log in. There is no tutorial to help with any problems.

Overall: I like the software but my students could not access the gradebook and Learnboost would not respond to requests for help. I have seen this same problem reported elsewhere.

Recommendations to other buyers: The company no longer seems to be supporting their software in January 2017

Pros: Ease of use, when it works.

Cons: Inconsistent. Crashes all the time. Only works about 1/2 the days.

Overall: Do not use. It will crash most days or will not load up. They have known about this problem for 2 years and haven't fixed it. NO customer support.

Recommendations to other buyers: DO NOT USE. You will have to abandon it and start over. It will cost you hours and hours.
