Many of our faculty have utilized a program called Micrograde in the past, apparently this program has closed up shop. My faculty are asking how the Canvas gradebook compare with the features of micrograde. I have never used this product so I don't have any good answers except to tout how wonderful Canvas is. Has anyone found or created a comparison between these to programs which I can pass along to faculty?
Thanks! Amanda Taintor
Yes I'm in the same situation. I'm currently helping a language teacher transitioning from micrograde to the Canvas gradebook. I haven't been able to play with micrograde but from my interactions with the teacher I'm helping with, there seems to be important differences between the two:
I'd be happy to hear other people's experience transitioning from micrograde to Canvas.
We are giving the Instructional Designers area a little bit of love and just want to check in with you. This will also bring this question new attention.

dI am using Canvas and really miss Micrograde. It enabled me to create student summaries for printed output and rosters that contained private emails and phone numbers for printed output. I could print my gradebook and see and over view of the grades and change them when reviewing their work.
