With a click, Boston teachers track attendance and grades in new online system

GovInnovations's picture

Starting this fall, nearly 5,000 Boston teachers have been tapping away on laptops, tablets, or interactive white boards to post a host of information online: attendance, conduct and behavior, and grades on tests, term papers, and even homework. The School Department hopes the massive gathering of data will alert them more quickly to when and why students fall behind in school, or in certain subjects, and help teachers and administrators devise individualized plans to put students back on track.
