How does teachassist work?

teachassist is primarily a tool for teachers to keep track of assessment and evaluation of students in their classes. Calculated and anecdotal data is shared between teachers and administrators supporting collaborative efforts between staff members. Available online tools enhance communication with students and parents such as course web pages and calendars. As a service, teachassist reduces the setup time and maintenance of class lists for teachers, and optimizes the process of tracking students as well as their evaluation.

teachassist allows for immediate inquiry about a student who is being tracked, assessed and evaluated thereby eliminating/reducing the need to fill out forms, set up meetings, and spend precious time outside of class to communicate with teachers; collaboration with other teachers and administrators becomes more effective. Teachers can easily view the progress of students in other subjects, as well as comments made by other teachers and their log entries for communications with parents.
