    I am a new teacher, and for my internship last year I used Engrade, a free, online grade book, probably similar to LearnBoost. I liked using Engrade better than the traditional grade books, but I have not utilized other online grade books to compare to Engrade. I was going to continue to use Engrade for the next school year, but your LearnBoost blog is making me rethink my decision. LearnBoost looks like it has several helpful features that Engrade does not have yet. Would you suggest that I use LearnBoost instead of Engrade? What other online grade books have you tried?

    Courtney,

    I’ve used Engrade too. Learnboost is more powerful and does more than just a grade book.

    Our district purchase PowerSchool which is pretty good too.

    I am a pre-service teacher and we are required to one of my subject to make a grade book. I might use this in making my first grade book.
