Pros

Fabulous software vendor, flawless delivery to students, mobile friendly, ada compliant, great performance, hosting, great customer support.
This information is helpful because we get to know what needs to be done for students to respond positively and to improve so to get constructive feedback from these evaluations.
We are satisfied the with our implementation of Blue Course Evaluation. It has been a good value in addressing all our institutional evaluation needs.

Pros

Outstanding, firs our needs exactly and we are a school or close to 700 students with 3 dismissal times. Easy to learn, easy to teach parents, and most important, amazing customer service.
It was amazing how quickly they were able to help us get set up and going right at the first of the year.
Tutorials are very helpful. Customer service has been very helpful.

Cons

They used a third party software (ABBYY) to generate forms, and no matter how meticulously our printer was calibrated, there were always problems in the scanning and upload into Blue.
I get they are an 'online first' company and a software above all else, but I was disappointed by Blue's inability to reliably process and integrate data from paper forms.
Without this information there was a little bit of confusion and we ended linking wrong people to modules as we relied on Blackboard information.

Cons

With COVID and social distancing measures, we were unable to host formal training and suffered because of it. It was difficult getting parents on board and in the know of why/how to use the app.
The confusion of the way things were labeled made a bit of a mess at dismissal time as well as the problems we had with the app.
There are cliches at the worst times but I don't think there is much we can do about that, if the user has an old version it doesn't work, communicate sooner when a new version is approaching.

PikMyKid

Easy to implement, easy to sustain

Reviewed 3 months ago
Pros

Roll-out was stress-free. PikMyKid had prepared videos and PDFs to train both faculty and parents on how to use it. I spent zero time creating how-to documents! PikMyKid offers the ability to have a Spanish translation. The product is quite customizable! You can customize the alerts the teachers receive, the alerts that go home to parents (I especially love the notification for parents who have not yet filled out the morning health screener!), the check-in questions, and more! PikMyKid support has been super helpful and timely in their responses to both me and and the parents at my school.

Cons

We did encounter a few mistakes with student grades/phone numbers from the file we sent for PikMyKid to upload. While it was only a few students, we didn't know about it until it was in front of us and a problem. However, they were quick, easy fixes. The check-in feature is not that intuitive. After clicking the blue "check-in" button, then the parent has to also click the check mark by their child's name. Most parents think the check mark just means that they checked in successfully.
