Learning Pro

Our unique database design & architecture means that:

  • When you create a class, you choose from authorised subjects, which allows teachers to collaboratively share curriculum, resources and tasks & assignments effortlessly.
  • Differentiation is supported naturally within mixed 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, IA forms, and syllabi, saving our schools countless hours each year.
  • Transition years are managed seamlessly, e.g. DP1 will teach a new subject guide, while DP2 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.

Assignments

Create summative and formative tasks linked to units, custom categories, and resources with support for differentiation (i.e. HL or SL). 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.

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.
