FreshGrade for Parents gives you a virtual window into the classroom, providing visibility into your child’s academic progress. View your child’s full portfolio, make comments on posted learning moments, and collaborate with his or her teacher on how you can support your child’s learning.

This app is supplementary to the FreshGrade Teacher app, which allows the teacher to capture rich media artifacts of student learning as it happens — through pictures, videos, audio recordings, links, documents and anecdotal notes. Teachers can share student portfolios, and easily send reminders home.

"FreshGrade forms a continuous glimpse into each child's progress that parents and students can share." — Sir Ken Robinson, Author, Creative Schools.

FreshGrade creates meaningful communication and increases engagement between teachers, students and parents. Using the FreshGrade Parent App and FreshGrade Student App, students and parents have secure access to view, comment and upload additional artifacts to the student’s portfolio. The FreshGrade suite of applications features student portfolios, custom assessment tools, custom activities/assignments with curriculum alignment and classroom announcements.

• Get a window into the classroom through your child’s secure portfolio
• See what your child is learning through photos, videos, audio recordings, and notes
• Stay up-to-date with student-specific information and class-wide announcements
• No in-app purchases, third-party advertising or data sharing

Enabling Teachers
Teachers can communicate using digital portfolios on the go, recording artifacts of learning, and uploading them directly to student portfolios.

“It has been a positive step forward in communicating student learning. Teachers appreciate the dialog it has created in looking at the new curriculum, and their assessment practices.” — Principal, Hazelgrove Elementary

Empowering Students
Capturing activities inside and out of the classroom has never been easier, putting control of continuous learning in the hands of students and their stakeholders. Teachers have noticed that as a result of using FreshGrade, their students take a greater ownership of their learning.

“Kids thrive on ownership. They love to access their portfolios, read teacher and parent comments, and know that they can have a say in their learning.” — Principal, Cambridge Elementary

Engaging Parents
FreshGrade enables stronger communication outside of the classroom, providing parents with greater awareness of their child’s development.

“Parents have been very excited about knowing and being more aware of the learning that occurs. They are better able to support learning at home with the specific feedback from teachers.” — Principal, Dogwood Elementary

Terrible UI

Bad UI, slow, lacking a zoom on photos and as another reviewer said, it crashes when you try to save a photo. It also can’t remember that I’m logged in but it seems to stay logged in for my wife on her phone.

Forced to use this garbage

Garbage app I’m forced to use. Stalls, closes randomly and cannot zoom or even read the comments on the school work posted. I’d rather have the report card, at least I can read it. Not sure why my kids school use this?

True story no lie ,

Crashes all the time and slow to use

The pictures crash when you go to save them, its been 18 months and no fix.

The videos don’t play all the time, and when they do they buffer slowly and play choppy.

Very poor layout and poor integration of multiple kids to one account.

Everything about this app is bad, i don’t know how this app became a standard for schools.
