I like that I can easily post homework assignments and documents for my students to access.
I dislike that when I create a unit under the planner section, and I decided that the assignment is going to be Formative and not contribute the a student's average, Edsby lists this assignment as "ungraded" when that is not the case. Many times I assignment homework that is "read chapter 3" or "print this worksheet"." These assignments do not receive a letter grade and, therefore, should not be listed as "ungraded."
I also have issues with creating and assigning a test for my students to take on Edsby:
1. I have to keep opening and reopening the test for students who happen to be absent on the day of the test. This creates extra, unnecessarily columns in my gradebook and confuses my students.
2. When students are asked to answer a short answer, the is essentially impossible and I have to go back and recheck each response because if they miss a punctuation mark, spell something wrong, or even don't capitalize something, or write it word for word exactly, it marks the answer as wrong. It is my understanding that this was designed to make grading easier and faster when it does not do this.
Finally, I dislike the way there is not an option to undo something when entering grades in the gradebook.
Really make sure you receive a training and then subsequent training for help.
I use it for my classroom and not for a business. IIt also can be very slow around grading times.
