What happened to the Read 180 Grading Tools for The Next Generation


When I used the Enterprise Edition of Read 180 I used the Read 180 Grading Tools on SAM to enter classwork grades.  I entered grades for quick writes and well as the student's graphic organizers.  There aren't any Grading Tools for Read 180 The Next Generation.  Does anyone know where we could record grades for classwork in SAM?

    Thank you for your comment. When we began our focus groups for the Next Generation, the one thing we heard from all of our READ 180 teachers, was the the grading tool in SAM was clunky and hard to use. To that end, we replaced it with the SAM Student Digital portfolio. Unfortunately, we have not completed the full scope of the portfolio, as we are in constant development and do plan to bring back the functionality of "adding an assignment". As more information is available, I will be sure to keep you informed - and please keep letting us know what you would like to see in the program. We take your feedback very seriously. We apologize for any inconvenience to your routine.
