Jupiter One
Gradebook + LMS
for individual teachers
Jupiter One  is a Gradebook and Learning Management System (LMS) for individual teachers. (For school and district accounts see Jupiter iO.)

Teachers love how Jupiter makes grading so much faster and easier, with the flexibility to grade the way you want. Use standards and rubrics, and instantly see whose grades are dropping.

Create online tests and lessons, and students turn in files online. Parents and students can receive automatic text/email alerts for missing assignments and low grades. Email your whole class, and have online discussions.

Grading
Standards-based or Traditional
Grade students on multiple learning objectives, or traditional average, or both.

•  

Common-Core standards preloaded.

•  Or customize your own.
•  Align each test question to specific objectives for automatic tracking.
•  Standards-based report cards updated automatically.
•  Report current mastery or term average.
•  Curriculum map shows all students’ progress on all objectives, class averages, and number of assessments for each objective.
Rubrics
Create rubric charts for any assignment, like 4/3/2/1 for essay content, style, and conventions.

•  

Optionally weight rubrics toward total score.

•  Or enter points for each grading criterion or section, like multiple-choice and essay.
Points, Percents, Grades
Enter scores however you prefer:
•  Points
•  Percents
•  Letter Grades or Rubrics
•  Adjustments for extra credit and penalties, like “25+2” or “40-5%”
Custom Grade Scales & Special Marks
•  Customize any grade scale, with or without percents, like A/B/C/D/F, E/S/N, 4/3/2/1, etc.

•  

Customize special marks for excused, missing, etc.

Weights & Categories
•  Weight each assignment.

•  

Custom categories for homework, tests, etc., weighted or unweighted.

•  

Optionally set weights like Qtr1 40%, Qtr2 40%, and Final Exam 20% toward the semester grade.

Override or Adjust Grades
•  Override any student’s grade with any percent or mark, like INC or W.

•  

Raise/lower any student’s grade by a given percent.

Drop Low Scores Automatically
Set how many assignments to drop from each category, like the lowest quiz score and 3 lowest homework scores.
Curve Scores
Easily adjust everyone’s scores if a test was too hard or easy, without needing to change their raw scores. (It does linear interpolation, not just adding/subtracting a fixed number.)
“What If” Grades
Enter hypothetical score changes to show a student what their grade would be if they redid an assignment or turned in missing assignments (without actually changing their grade).
Graph Impact on Grade
You and your students see how much each assignment raised or lowered their grade, so they know the consequences of a poor test grade or missing homework.
Graph Grade Trends
Instantly see whose grades are falling, and who is improving.
Individualized Instruction
•  Give assignments for just one or some students.

•  

Give different assignments to students based on their specific learning styles, for Response To Intervention (RTI).

Transfer Grades

Learning Management System
Essay Grader
Highlight text and insert comments directly in students’ writing assignments. Customize shortcuts for common comments, so it is actually faster than marking with a pen.  Try it!

Students may also initiate their own peer reviews from any student, or even non-students like parents and tutors.

•  

Have students post photos, videos, audio, and ideas online for peers to comment on. These critiques can be graded automatically.

•  

Tests may be printed as needed.

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!
