Curriculum

CP Unit Planners

Based on the design of the IB Diploma programme templates, the CP and DP unit planners allow you to collaboratively organise and plan your CP Core and IB DP subjects with resources.

Centralise curriculum planning

  • Organise coverage of topics and eliminate paperwork.
  • Select from built-in course criteria, subjects, aims, and syllabus content.

Academic Standards & Curriculum Updates

We have added over 607 sets of academic & accreditation standards and benchmarks for our schools comprising the world’s largest indexed collection of over 1.5 million fully-licensed academic standards.

Learning & Teaching

Our unique database design & architecture means that:

  • When you create a class, you choose from authorised IB CP and DP subjects, allowing teachers to collaboratively share curriculum, resources, tasks, and assignments effortlessly.
  • Differentiation is supported within mixed CP and DP HL & SL classes, allowing units and assignments to be taught separately.
  • When a curriculum review occurs, we do the heavy lifting to centrally update the assessment criteria, objectives, forms, and syllabus content, saving our schools countless hours each year.
  • Transition years are managed seamlessly, e.g. CP Year 1 will access the new content, while CP Year 2 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.

Tasks

Create summative and formative tasks linked to units, custom categories, and resources with support for differentiation. Allow for student uploads and plagiarism checking with our Turnitin integration.

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.

Calendar

As a teacher or administrator you can view assignment deadlines, exams, and entire class calendars by year, group (such as Basketball or Drama Club), or by individual class. Students also get a real-time view of their term as calendar items are synced as soon as they are added by their instructors.

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 students performance alerting them to potential issues as they happen.

Portfolio

Students gradually build a digital portfolio over time as they submit work and record journal entries. All submitted work is automatically grouped into subjects with learning goals linked to the IB learner profile attributes. All portfolios can be exported as PDFs or synced to our partners for applying to higher education.

Assessment & Reporting

Tailored for the unique needs of international schools, our systems provide built-in IBCP curriculum support and country-specific assessment requirements, all wrapped in to a sleek, mobile-ready and easy to use interface.

Internal Assessment

Built-in Internal Assessment forms and worksheets for the CP Reflective Project, and IB Diploma Groups 1, 4 and 6, provide a workflow for recording orals, assigning works from the Prescribed Books list and managing practicals & labs in the Sciences.

Gradebook

Submit individual task and term assessments by points and anecdotal feedback with customised category weightings and grade boundaries. Create term rubrics for all or specific subjects. Administrators can track in real-time the progress of term grade submissions by subject or student.

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.
