For Immediate release

February 2015 Product Release

Common Goal Systems, a leading developer of cloud-based software for schools, announces several enhancements to TeacherEase and SchoolInsight. TeacherEase is software for the digital classroom and SchoolInsight is a comprehensive student information system.

The new functionality includes:

Standards-based Grading Letter Grade Conversion.   Overall Standards-based grades can now be converted to an A, B, C (or any letter grade) for report cards. Converted letter grades can be used for GPA, Honor Roll, etc.
            To set up, contact Technical Services.

Standards-based Grading Eligibility.    Eligibility now supports Standards-based grades in addition to traditional grades.
            Admin Main > Reports > Gradebook - Eligibility
            Instructor Main > Gradebook Reports > Check Eligibility

Sorted Standards-based Student Performance.    To better support differentiation, customers want the ability to dynamically group students based upon current standards-based scores.  This newly implemented report works across many sections of a course -- which is especially useful in a team teaching environment where teachers would like to exchange students to from better groups.

District Site/Grade Summary (OK Only).    Some auditors wanted our customer to provide a district-wide summary of the Site/Grade Summary report (instead of just site-by-site data).  The new report can now be accessed at the district level, run for all sites at once, and includes both individual site breakdown and district summary.
