Online portfolio to track and comment on student work

Overview

FreshGrade is an online portfolio where teachers, students and parents all interact to capture and comment on the student’s school work. The program also allows teachers to create and grade custom assignments, which are then tracked in the tool. FreshGrade’s core features are free for all users, though an upgraded version is available.

APPROACH:

Teachers create a digital class by uploading their class list, or can integrate a class list using Clever. This process creates an individual portfolio pages for each student in the class. The teacher can then use the FreshGrade app to upload materials - documents, pictures, videos, audio or comments - to individual student pages or to the whole class page.

Using the browser-based version of FreshGrade, teachers can also create, assign and grade activities. These activities can be aligned to specific standards and include attached documents. They can be assigned to an individual student, a group, or the whole class. Teachers also choose how they will assess the activity, e.g. on a 3-point scale, a score out of 10, or with a custom note. Data from this assessment will automatically be captured in FreshGrade’s gradebook, where teachers can view each student’s performance. FreshGrade can also create summary reports, which pulls in student reflections and examples of students’ work.

When students use the FreshGrade student app, they are able to view only their own portfolio page. Students can comment on the work in their portfolio, or upload their own materials using the app. The app sends a notification to teachers when there is new activity in the student’s account, and to students when the teacher uploads a new class-wide document.

Parents use FreshGrade to view their child’s portfolio and to comment on the items it contains. Parents also receive notifications when there is new activity in the portfolio.

PRICING:

FreshGrade’s core features are free and can be downloaded by district admins, school leaders, teachers, parents and students. A paid version of the tool provides additional services and data insights on top of those described above. This version of FreshGrade costs $5 per student per year.
