Jupiter One is a Gradebook and Learning Management System (LMS) for individual teachers. (For school and district accounts see our other product, Jupiter iO.) Teachers love how it makes grading so much faster and easier, with the flexibility to grade the way you want. And students love the online format for tests and homework. That’s why Jupiter is the #1 gradebook for elementary, secondary, and higher ed.
Easily record standards-based assessments, take attendance, grade assignments on rubrics, and keep behavior logs. See whose grades are dropping, and email your whole class.
Students and parents can login to check grades and homework, download files, and view announcements and calendar notices. Parents can set alerts for low grades, missing assignments, and absences.
Easily create your own online tests, lessons, and exercises. Students work on computers, tablets, or smartphones, then their grades are entered directly in your gradebook. You can give students individualized lessons and tests to meet their specific learning needs and meet RTI requirements.
Have students submit files online, so you can grade everyone’s homework in just a few clicks. Mark up writing assignments by highlighting text and inserting comments from your own custom palette of shortcuts, so grading writing is faster. And students can do the same to give each other peer reviews, or to get feedback from their parents or tutors.

The program is VERY user-friendly so even those teachers who don’t catch on to new technologies very quickly could also use it.

Jupiter is a million times easier, faster, and smoother than the system my university uses.
I am able to do more long-answer questions to increase the rigor of my courses, while still reducing the time I spend grading!
