I am a consultant for PowerSchool. I believe that is a tool that can help teachers to use data
about student performance to inform but not determine their decisions. They believe that my
fifteen fixes are a good basis for teachers to use to determine grades.

That is a very harsh general criticism. I would be interested to know what are your specific issues with PowerTeacher. I believe that now that it truly can be used for standards-based grading that it is a very useful tool for communicating student learning. If you think it is useless it is probably because you have not been properly trained and are not aware of it's capabilities.
