Curriculum First Integrated Learning Platform

Our planning, assessment, and reporting functionality for multi-curricula international schools is now fully redesigned in our new, mobile-ready interface.

Curriculum

Tailored for the unique needs of international schools, ManageBac provides broad curriculum support and customisable assessment & reporting in to a sleek, mobile-ready, and easy to use interface. Full support for the IB, ACARA and Australian State curricula means ManageBac will support your whole-school.

If you have other areas of your school’s curriculum you want to map, plan, analyse or report on please let us know in our initial call. We have a dedicated data and standards team who will support you in getting the relevant data and structure in place to set you up for success.

Our Australian Customer Schools have diverse needs and aims with their curriculum and learning needs moving forward. We would love to hear what your priorities are and show you how ManageBac can support this.

Learning

With a unique Curriculum-First approach & design, ManageBac supports effective implementation of your chosen international curricula:

  • When you create a class, you choose from pre-built subjects linked to exam paper codes, which allow teachers to collaboratively share curriculum, resources and tasks & assignments effortlessly.
  • Differentiation is supported naturally (i.e. Extended and Core) classes allowing units, resources and assessment tasks to be taught separately.
  • When a curriculum review occurs, curriculum changes are automatic, saving schools countless hours each year and ensuring that curriculum is accurate & up-to-date.
  • Transition years, when curriculum reviews go into effect, are managed seamlessly, e.g. Year 12 will teach a new subject guide, while Year 13 remains on the old curriculum.

Classes

Staff can view events, tasks, deadlines, exams, and entire calendars by year group, individual class or activity group (i.e. Basketball Club). Students also have access to their own calendar, which is populated with their associated items and updated in real-time.

Attendance

Teachers record class attendance based on the configured preferences (i.e. weekdays and rotation-based, categories, days off). Admins can manage attendance by student, class, or curriculum and set daily digests, send reminders to teachers, and absences to parents. Parents can also submit attendance excusals through ManageBac.

Messages

Communicate with year groups, teachers, and individual students to provide feedback, suggestions, and add clarity about tasks and assignments. Parents using ManageBac can also receive messages about their student's performance alerting them to potential issues as they happen.

Tasks

Create summative and formative tasks linked to units, custom categories, and resources with support for differentiation (i.e. Phases in Second Languages). Support for task-specific clarification of assessment criteria. Allow for student uploads and plagiarism checking with our Turnitin integration.

Students also get a real-time view of their term as calendar items are synced as soon as they are added by their instructors.

Assessment

Tailored for the unique need of international schools, our systems provide customisable gradebooks, built-in assessment and annotation tools, as well as integrations with Google Docs for coursework submission and TurnItIn for plagiarism prevention.

Gradebook

Submit individual task and term assessments by custom assessment criteria, points, or comments. Create term rubrics for all or specific subjects, and automatically convert to local grades. Administrators can track the progress of term grade submissions by subject or student in real-time.

Google Docs

In less than 3 clicks, teachers can link, assign, and distribute a Google Doc template to their entire class. For students, this provides one-click access to their GDocs editor with the coursework template pre-loaded, and automatically saves the submitted GDoc to their portfolio with all marks and annotations preserved for future reference.

Our Turnitin integration allows student coursework to be automatically submitted through Turnitin prior to grading in order to improve student writing, empower original thinking, and prevent plagiarism. Access all Feedback Studio features directly from within ManageBac.

Annotations

Vantage Reader is a built-in tool for all marking and annotation of submitted coursework. Designed to be collaborative, multiple authors can comment and annotate individual assignments in parallel - Just like in Google Docs.
