I found the Notes field a bit confusing ("What is it for?" was my first thought), and now my first client to complete the Testimonial put his testimonial in the Notes fields .... and his comment in the main Testimonial data entry screen.
Perhaps there could be an option to hide the Notes field? I think this is a design case where less would be more

Hi - the notes field can be used for several things; for instance on our extensions testimonials, we use it to state where the testimonial came from. The Joomla Extensions Directory JED, a customer, website, etc. You can see an example of the
notes field in use here
We'd be happy to make it optional - I've added it to our 'todo' list for future releases. In the meantime you can hide the field by editing your 'com_reportcard/views/form/tmpl/edit.php' file (or create an override for that file) and comment out or delete the following:

Hi-- those are style quirks, probably due to your template's styles overriding WF / Joomla styles. If you switch to protostar, do they still exist? If not, post a link to your site and we should be able to advise how to change the styles so they work.
