American & National Curriculum
Students gradually build a digital portfolio over time as they submit coursework into their classes for individual assessments. Track the progression of a student’s core values and focus area through their learning goals and submitted work. All submitted work is automatically grouped into subjects with learning goals. Portfolios can be exported as PDFs or synced to our partners when taking the next step in your students’ learning journey.
Bring your curriculum to life with a unified remote learning platform on ManageBac with built-in Zoom, AssessPrep, and Chat integrations.

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.
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.

Include a cover letter with signatures, summary of achievement, class reports, advisor and student reflections, attendance, extra-curricular activities, and grade and rubric descriptions.
