Description: Online gradebooks are often too busy trying to imitate Microsoft Excel to actually meet teacher needs. MyJeven.com online breaks that mold because it is designed from the ground up for Education.

MyJeven.com can customize data reports for individual schools -- allowing schools to automate processes such as custom progress reports.

Description: Solving one of the pervasive issues in elementary education, LeveledLibrary.com allows teachers and parents to research the reading levels of any children's book, and instantly translate the levels across a variety of leveling systems. Should a level not be found for a book, users may vote on the level of the book. Furthermore, LeveledLibrary.com is Jeven-enabled -- such that users with a Jeven Tracker can scan the barcodes on the backs of most books and quickly find the levels of their entire libraries.
Fees for services: Free. Jeven functions require a Jeven Tracker.
Ages of students: Pre-School to High School
