Portfolio

Students gradually build a digital portfolio over time as they submit coursework into 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.

Assessment & Reporting

Flexible assessment options are directly integrated with Reporting.

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, and automatically convert to local grades. 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.
