At its core, teachassist is a marks management tool, which has quickly evolved in to a Student Success engagement platform. It's not about just gathering and using data electronically, but the ability to communicate it effectively and be responsive to it.
Designed by teachers for teachers, easily set up and manage Assessment tasks For, As, Of Learning. Using numerical values or assessing by levels of achievement, quickly enter in and manage student achievement.
As teachers who teach in the system, we've desigend teachassist around the fundamentals outlined in Growing Success. We strive to continue evolving the platform as new technologies emerge, and new methods of gathering, managing and interpreting data arises.
With the integration of Curriculum Expectations on assessment tasks, and observations, you can now view student achievement and progress in multiple dimensions, easily and quickly identifying areas of needs and improvements.
Easily view trending analysis of student achievement through various graphs, and calculations with respective to Assessment Of Learning, Assessment For Learning, and the assessment of Learning Skills and Work Habits.
As all educators are deemed Student Success teachers, we've designed tools for teachers to effectively monitor students at risk of failing their courses, allowing designated Student Success teachers to quickly and effectively monitor and identify students at risk.
In the past, teachers would have to wait until after mid term marks are submitted in order to start monitoring students... now, teachers can effectively monitor students in real time, and reach out to students at risk before marks are submitted for report cards.
Students and parents can gain access to the recorded marks, and assessment data online from any web enabled device or platform. Depending on the level of visibility set by the teacher, students will have access to detailed information about their assessments in their course, as well as descriptive feedback to their assessment tasks, proving insight in their achievement. Trending analysis is also displayed for the student, providing more recent and most consistent analysis for their course work and involvement.
Using the built in email tools, quickly send out progress reports to students and parents, adding to the real time availability of assessment data online.
Create calendars for the school to inform staff, students and parents on events happening at the school
We've designed our platform to be easily integrated with various SIS models, and can effectively develop methods of communication between various platforms.
Easily manage your classroom and other classrooms by quickly identifying students via their class seating plan or photos. Leave feedback and Learning Skills and Work Habits assessments for teachers regarding classroom behaviour and activity.
Resources are scarce at schools, so managing them efficiently and accurately allows for educators to be better organized and prepared for their classes. Centralizing the management of this, and providing a simple interface, allows for quick access to this information.
Quickly store and report on the attendance of students in the class. As online records become more acceptable as a form of legitimate teacher records, this information can be easily reported upon and analysed.
With the SupplyAssist module added to teachassist, schools and teachers can easily manage their absences and class assignments, and effectively manage classrooms assigned to them.
The office staff can quickly assign staff to courses, and teachers can seamlessly access classroom information, lesson plan information, and provide detailed feedback to the teacher as well as provide Learning Sklils and Work Habits assessment for the day.
Built in to teachassist is the ability to transfer files to SIS Reporting Systems, and even generate Report Card files reflecting the required Provincial needs.
Set up appointment times for students to set up meetings with teachers outside of class time. This module makes parent interviews and special events easy to manage.
As teachers, we are committed to the Success of the Student.
We aim to provide online tools to assist in the effectiveness of teachers in the classroom and between educators in the school.
Our goal is to offer services for teachers, students, administrators and parents of students in the education system, in the reporting, curating, and distribution of a students' progress in their curricular endeavours in order to maximize student learning, feedback, achievement.
As a corporation, our desire is to have an impact on student achievement with a Global Social Purpose attitude as a baseline.
“As a teacher, and a developer, I needed a tool that would effectively curate and communicate student achievement instantly, securely and transparently... so I developed one. As the designed tool grew and evolved, fellow educators required collaboration tools to aid in the efficiency of our jobs, which resulted in greater effectiveness in the community.
teachassist is an online and ever evolving tool that is developed by teachers, for teachers.”
