Needs Work 1) the UI for this on the iPad is WAY better because it mimics the online version better; specifically, I would like to see the attendance move faster by letting me select one attendance code and then applying it to all the students who fit that category. As it stands now, I have to select one student at a time, and this drastically slows down performance. 2) There needs to be a "today" option for all date entries. 3) When inputting individual grades, the needs to be a "finished" or "save" button...
It worked Let's face it we are unfortunately working for schools that chose renweb over the many high quality grade books out there. Had computer issues the night before report cards were due and in desperation tried the app. Let's just pray the grades/assignments don't disappear like they occasionally do at work.
Ignored by the developers and almost worthless If it were within my power to tell my school to stop using this software, I would do it in a heartbeat. There are numerous issues with this application, not the least of which is severely limited functionality compared even to the phone version of the iOS release. The android version looks and feels as if it were designed as an afterthought by someone who either did not know or care about Android APIs. It is slow, cumbersome, clunky, and does not even come close to serving the need it purports to. As a teacher, if you have any say as to whether your school adopts RenWeb for school management software, tell your school officials to run. Run away. The problems are not limited to the application, but this app is awful enough all by itself. I realize this is all rather harsh, but it is unfortunately richly deserved.
Absolute garbage Renweb itself is quite possibly the most poorly programmed, least intuitive, and ugly excuse of software ever forced on educators since the beginning of the world. Anyone who is unfortunate enough to have to suffer the blight of renweb would undoubtedly agree that anything so teacher unfriendly HAD to be programmed by a room of drunk monkeys. "How can anything possibility be worse?" I asked myself. This app. This app managed to make something that is garbage to start with and make it painfully worse.
Good It moves slow if not on wifi. But very handy for regular registers. Would love to have the copy to other class feature in the gradebook section. Sometimes I enter grades for the same type of assignment for different classes. The feature is in the desktop version but not here.
Neglected Decent for taking attendance on the phone, looking up a grade quickly; but far less useful on tablet devices and almost worthless compared to the iOS version, which at least has all the features of FacultyWeb. Android version can't record behavior, mass edit lesson plans, email, edit report cards, etc. Shame as it could be far more useful, but RenWeb seems content to let it remain half-worthless and call it an "app."
