Data management tool to help teachers track students' academic/ behavioral performance

Overview

Kickboard is a tool for teachers and administrators to collect, analyze and share data regarding their students’ academic and behavioral performance. This profile includes grades, standards mastery, reading growth, prescribed interventions, rubric observations, attendance, and student behavior and character strengths

By pooling such information in one place, teachers are able to provide immediate and consistent feedback to students, and enforce consistent reward and consequence systems. In this way Kickboard helps increase the alignment of students’ academic and behavioral performance and so influences school and classroom culture. It also allows principals to provide targeted professional development to improve teacher effectiveness,and parents to become highly engaged in their child’s education through meaningful progress reports. 

Unlike traditional gradebooks, Kickboard tracks the various components of a school's Student Information System so teachers need only enter one portal to get all their students’ information, grades and behavioral reports. Kickboard can be integrated with a school’s existing SIS (e.g. Powerschool, Edusoft etc), and deployed in a single classroom or across an entire district.

The company contends that it was designed for use across a school community to improve academic and behavioral outcomes in general education, Response to Intervention (RTI) and special education programs. That way, teachers can then share trends particularly around student behavior with one another. But the software can be used by individual teachers to manage their own classroom.

Among the program’s highlights: one-click access to information systems, increasingly aligned system of reward and consequence, availability of data, immediate tech support. Gradecam is now integrated in Kickboard for ease of use by teachers to capture assessment data, and Common Core and state 4-core academic standards provided by EdGate are imbedded for each customer.

Kickboard was a 2014 Codie Award Finalist for best classroom management solution.
