This is a feature that allows you to assess your students during their time in your school easily and quickly. Typically, these assessments are done on a monthly basis but you can adapt it to how frequently you assess students. (There are more basic progress reports for weekly student progress reports here.)
Completing Student Assessments
These are created via Course Admin – Student Progress – Student Assessment. When you have selected the date, course and location and clicked Get Data the lower part of the screen will appear plus all students who are in courses that week
The way to use this is that you fill in the date and select a status from the drop down then when you click Fill Progress all students assessments will be filled with the default chosen. You can then go to individual students and make necessary changes.
Here you can see what is actually filled in. We will look at this now in more detail
Tick Box – after you have saved your assessments if you tick the box a Print button will appear. Clicking Print will send you a file with all your student assessments ready for printing out to give to students. You must have a template for the assessment certificate in your school’s account. Click here for more details.
Date – this is the date filled in in the top section
Weeks – this is the number of weeks that the student has been on this course. You may not want to complete assessments for recently arrived students.
Level – these are stored in Look Ups here The level that you put here updates the student card which is then used in certificates. This means that certificates are printed with the latest assessment levels automatically.
Speaking etc., – the next 5 columns are filled in automatically according to what you select in Assessment Status at the top. Assessment Status is in Look Ups here
Comment – This drop-down is where you can choose from items previously entered in Look Ups here. The automatic comment default is filled in which you can then change if you want.
Here is a short video showing how this works:
