MyStudentsProgress.com overview

What is MyStudentsProgress.com?

MSP (MyStudentsProgress.com) is a school administration management system designed for K-12 private, independent, and parochial schools within America. The all-in-one platform benefits administrators, teachers and parents, and provides a variety of modules for attendance, report cards, activities, progress reports, admissions, conduct, bulletins, and more.

MSP provides administrators with the tools and resources necessary to ensure schools run as effectively and efficiently as possible. Communication features include emergency alerts that allow users to send SMS messages to inform parents of critical situations such as a lockdown, or school closure. A centralized bulletin helps teachers and faculty stay up to date on important information, while email blasts allow teachers to communicate with parents directly.

MSP enables teachers to streamline various tasks, including a digital grade book that helps teachers manage grades, post or flag missing assignments, track student comments, and more. Teachers are able to take attendance, manage lunch orders for individual students, and check account balances. The solution also empowers students with a self-service tool for tracking assignments, grades, teacher notes, and more.

MSP enables parents to be more involved in their child’s education, and stay aware of their progress. Parents are able to track student conduct, upcoming assignments, teacher notes, grades, attendance, and more. Parents can also manage their child’s lunch orders and add funds to their account directly through the platform. Additional platform features include modules for historical alumni data, a donor’s database, customized calendars, detailed reports, prospect management, and electronic folders.

Great software program

We have been able to increase the communication with parents in terms of viewing grades and assignments online. Being a web-based platform has made it more accessible and reliable for our teachers as they enter their grades and assignments. They love how easy it is to use!

Pros
I love how many things you can do with MSP. From grading, to attendance, calendar, emailing, reports, they cover it all.

Cons
The only thing I wish they had was a lesson plan module. We have to use an outside program, and it would be easier to just have it integrated into MSP. But I understand they are working on that!

Great technical support for product that gets the job done

Review Source: Capterra

Our overall experience with MSP has been good. We at the school have pretty reasonable expectations that changing a School Management platform is never easy, but what is making the difference for us is that technical support has been very responsive.

Pros
This is one of the more affordable solutions we found for our school. The customization for our report cards and transcripts was excellent. Custom demographics was also a nice addition as we can make a student's profile data contain fields that are specific to our needs. It's best quality is the account manager\technical support they provide. Any question I have is answered extremely fast and the answers are well thought out. This has been invaluable to us, since our school setup is somewhat unique. It has been a huge relief to us.

Cons
There are some fit and finish issues that I imagine will be worked out in time. For example, a label for a text field might be off center with the text field itself. The user interface might not be making the best use of some of the space. Sorting through classes can be time consuming as some fields will not sort alphabetically, but some fields do. The service had a couple brief outages, but those have been resolved as of late.

Good for what it does

The program has excellent resources, they are just very difficult to get to. The interface is not intuitive and there are far too many layers and drop down menus to make it quick to navigate until you really know what you are doing. Customer support has been excellent, which is a plus since we've definitely needed their help to find things we know the program can do but, again, they are not immediately evident in the top layer of menus, or take too many stops to accomplish.

Pros
It fits our budget, it has log-ins for parents, students, teachers, and administrators, customer support has been very good.

Cons
It has too many layers. It's not easy to find what you need, it's very intuitive. Sending an e-mail from a teacher to a group of parents is not easy- there are far too many steps involved. Once you create a list for an email, you cannot easy edit it or add people to it. Finding the information you are looking for as a parent is very difficult (assigments are hidden in a separate layer from the class and there is no easy way to figure out how to get there).

As a unique private charter school we are finding MSP not as adaptable to our needs as hoped.

Pros
Customer Service: It has been most useful to have a representative assigned to our school who knows our idiosyncrasies. Although we cannot readily reach her by phone, she responds to emails very quickly and addresses issues in a timely manner. Training sessions/webinars are individualized and very helpful. Our representative has gone "above and beyond" expectations to make sure our questions are answered. Assignments and Grade book: Our teachers are very happy with the ease of inputting assignments and grades, as well as with associated features.

Cons
Templates: Report card and transcript templates are very inflexible. The software limitations on how grades are displayed on report cards was not fully explained prior to our sample report card submission, after which we were "stuck" with templates that did not work well for us. Transcripts need to be able to show more than four years. The MSP templates do not allow for this. Attendance: MSP is unable to track attendance by minutes missed, as required by Ohio law. No school scheduling or business office modules.

Easy for Admins. Not so Easy for Users

Used daily for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

It is easy to manage student information and new features are being added all the time. The support is outstanding and responsive.

Pros
Setting things up and getting them working is a breeze. The structure of things in the database seems well planned and things mesh well. The support I receive whenever I call or email is outstanding.

Cons
It isn't so easy for users to get signed in for the first time and even then, aside from the documentation, it isn't easy for them to use. This is especially true for the not digitally literate users. This includes mostly parents, but also a couple older teachers and our principal.
