Personalized Progress Reports with Screencastify

Screencastify Squad

All learners have different needs — and with so many moving parts in a school day, different buildings, and across your district—Screencastify can help involve many members of your learning community. Traditional progress reports tend to take hours to complete and are less effective in the long run. They often fail to make it to parents and provide minimal detail even when they do.

But, a progress report narrated with Screencastify can be a real intervention for struggling students as well as a way to celebrate a student's specific strengths all while saving time creating them. Look below for three benefits of narration:

Personalized commentary

Timothy might not be showing his full potential through homework, while Susan might need some extra support with assessments. But that doesn't tell the whole story!

Creating engaging video reports allows you to showcase each student's unique strengths and weaknesses beyond just grades. This goes beyond tiny text boxes and lets you delve deeper into their accomplishments and areas for growth.

Show how much you care

At its core, teaching is relational. For students, the realization that their teacher cares can be an important motivating factor. Traditional progress reports can fail to demonstrate genuine concern or appreciation. But, a personalized message shows students that you're invested in their success.

Explain your perspective

There will always be a disconnect between school and students’ home life. When you narrate grades using Screencastify, parents get the opportunity to hear why a student is performing poorly from you. This could be the perfect opportunity to clear up any misconceptions and gain an ally in parents.
