ManageBac has over 600 sets of built-in academic & accreditation standards and benchmarks for our schools comprising the world’s largest indexed collection of over 1.5 million fully-licensed academic standards.
Teaching & Learning
ManageBac C1 supports effective implementation of your chosen 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, tasks and 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, 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 12 will teach a new subject guide, while Year 13 remains on the old curriculum.
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.
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. Parents can also submit attendance excusals through ManageBac.
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 student's performance alerting them to potential issues as they happen.
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.
Supported file types
- Website or Video
- Files (PDF, PPT, DOC, TXT)
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.
Assessment & Reporting
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.
Submit individual task and term assessments by custom assessment criteria, points, or comments. Create term rubrics for all or specific subjects, and automatically convert to local grades. Administrators can track the progress of term grade submissions by subject or student in real-time.
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.
Customisable report card templates that are seamlessly integrated with homeroom, class gradebooks, and attendance. Include a cover letter with signatures, summary of achievement, class reports, advisor and student reflections, attendance, extra-curricular activities, and grade and rubric descriptions. Generate reports in bulk as print-ready PDFs which can also be distributed securely to parents and students online.
