Assembly's new student hub is the gathering place for principals and teaching staff to be able to enter, view, analyse and report on all student assessments, behaviour and attendance information. With the ability to keep all information together, in one place, teachers are able to quickly work on their assessments, incidents and learning support; managers are able to collate information together for analysis and principals are able to graphically display information quickly and easily for board of trustee, ministry and personal reporting.
Assembly's planning management module has been designed to enable assessment managers to create re-usable planned assessments and publish these as often as needed. This simple process allows managers to very quickly plan out a years work and publish these assessments out to teachers with a few simple clicks. Managers are then able to track how teachers are going with recording assessment data through an information button. Viewing and analysing school-wide data and combinations of data is able to be done with a simple click of a button.
Outside of planned, school-wide assessments, teachers also have the ability to create their own ad-hoc assessments, thus allowing them to keep track of any assessment related data on their students. Once data has been entered into an assessment, whether planned or ad-hoc, teachers are able to visualise and analyse their data with a click of a button. Teachers are also able to combine assessments together and analyse the results.
The Assembly team are aware that every school is different. We therefore supply the curriculum frameworks in three different options - by level, by area of learning and level or by area of learning on it's own. Schools can then add to and alter the frameworks to make them personal to their own requirements. We also allow for both the catholic and the seventh day adventist curriculums, with Maori and other frameworks coming soon. And, if you like working completely out of the box, you can create your own frameworks completely from scratch.
As our student hub is the centre of teacher's assembly activity, we have included our attendance registers on our student hub dashboard. Teachers will see the registers that need to be completed and, with the click of a button, can access the register and fill it in. From the administration side, office administrators are able to track which registers have been completed and which ones still need to be done. Attendance results are automatically collated and attendance officers are able to immediately handle any unknown absences or truants. With links to automatic attendance software, Assembly is able to quickly get responses from parents or caregivers and update their attendance results. With associated comprehensive reports and visualisations, attendance analysis is a breeze.
We are currently developing an interactive student and parent/caregiver portal which will allow a lot more interaction between the school and their students and caregivers.
Watch this space, which we will update as we get more information.
This is just the beginning of what we are aiming for with our student hub. Watch this space to see each new addition to our student hub as it comes along. We are very excited with the direction this is going in and are sure you will be impressed with what is coming.
