Writing end-of-year reports is important, but there has to be a better way.
We’ve been there — juggling dozens of Word documents, spending hours copying and pasting comments between students with similar abilities, then poring over your reports for hours, spell checking, checking pronouns and sorting out the formatting to make everything fit.
We knew there had to be a better way. That’s why we invented ReportBox.
If you haven’t watched our demo video yet, we’d highly recommend it.
It’s the best way to see how ReportBox can help you in your end-of-year report writing.
Meet the founders
ReportBox was started by Rachel and Stuart Johnston, a husband-and-wife team who saw first hand how painful end-of-year reports could be for teachers. Today it’s developed and supported by a team of developers, designers and support people.
We think you’re going to love ReportBox. Here’s why...
Better quality end-of-year reports
With a built-in spell checker, personal pronoun checker, and customisable professional report templates, ReportBox will help you focus your time and effort on the most important parts of report writing.
Your reports, just how you like them
You can choose to use our professional report templates, or we can help you merge your school’s existing report template, free of charge.
You can create your own bank of commonly used comments and personalise them as you apply them to your students. You’ll also have access to our shared comment bank of over 15000 comments, just to get you started. ReportBox doesn’t force you to use pre-prepared comments.
Secure & backed up automatically
ReportBox uses encryption to ensure your data is safe and secure. ReportBox is also backed up off-site regularly to multiple locations.
Saving (a lot) of time
Teachers tell us that they save up to 40% of their report-writing time the very first year they use ReportBox. After your first year setup, teachers tell us that they save up to 80% of their report-writing time, and still end up with better quality reports.
Available any time, anywhere
You don't need to be in school to complete your reports. There’s no software to install, and you can access to ReportBox from any Computer — PC, Mac or Tablet. As long as you have an internet connection, you can connect to ReportBox.
Easy student import
Get started quickly by importing your student list from your school information manager. ReportBox has an easy to use wizard to walk you through the process, or our support team can help you if you’d prefer.
