Class Charts Adds Support for Reporting In Multiple Languages

Class Charts, a free behavior and attendance recording service, has recently added support for translations in Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Dutch and German. The service previously and still does support French and Spanish translations.

Class Charts also recently added the option to back-date attendance. This could be handy for those times when you forget to take attendance at the beginning of the day (we've all done it).

A third recent enhancement to Class Charts is the option to create custom reporting fields for each of your individual classes.

Class Charts is a free service designed by a teacher for teachers. The service is best described as one part seating chart and one part behavior chart. In Class Charts you can create and arrange as many seating charts as you like. You can create charts in a "seating" format that shows seat placement or you can use a list view. You can use students' real pictures in your charts or you can use one of the avatar images in your charts.

Class Charts seating charts double as behavior tracking charts. To document a student's attendance and behavior just select his name from the chart and tap the appropriate icon for attendance or behavior. You can record positive and negative behaviors. Students and parents can see their reports by accessing Class Charts through an invitation code that you send to them.
