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 9 will teach a new subject guide, while Year 10 remains on the old curriculum.

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.

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.

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 teachers and students within year groups, classes, and activity groups. Provide individual student feedback on tasks, which is also visible to their parents to track progress throughout the term.

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 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.

Portfolio

Students gradually build a digital portfolio over time as they submit coursework in to their classes for individual assessments. All submitted work is automatically grouped into subjects with learning goals linked to learner profile attributes. All portfolios can be exported as PDFs or synced to our partners for applying to higher education

Reporting

Pre-built reporting templates facilitate terms-based reporting of academic performance alongside service learning, project-based learning, and custom assessment options & rubrics.

Report Cards

Report cards can include a customisable cover letter with signature, learner profile, ATL skills evaluation, overall progress including homeroom advisory comments and attendance, extra-curricular activities and final grade descriptions. Generate reports individually or in bulk as print-ready PDFs which can also be distributed to securely to parents and students online with optional email notifications.
