New Time-Saving Reports in PowerTeacher

Our PowerSchool Master Eric Zou has ​added three new reports to PowerTeacher to help you find information about your students.

The first, ​Incompletes Report for Teachers, shows a list of incomplete assignments, the student responsible, and the student’s parent’s email address. We hope this makes it easier to inform parents of your concerns about their children – especially if you do an e-mail merge using Outlook.

The second, Past Referrals for Teachers, shows a list of all the disciplinary log items you’ve submitted. You can sort it by student. This will help you determine how many times you’ve logged something in PowerSchool so that you can escalate to the principal’s office if necessary.

The third, Student Test Summary for Teachers, shows your students’ latest WIDA and MAP scores as well as their current grade in your course. You can use this to help you design instructional groupings.
