Version 3 continues the improved way of recording and analysing student group testing data. The standalone runtime files now permit file sharing by default and the calendar function will take you to 2030. The program continues to display 6 lines of active test data for reading and spelling age testing as well as for mathematics testing. This data can also be instantly graphed! If your school tests twice yearly, the reading, spelling and math graphs will automatically show progress over a 3 year period. There are two forms of graphing. The first displays individualized data. Individual student results are graphed according to the student's own growth rates and is scaled according to their own highest and lowest scores. The second form of graphing can show growth rates of averaged data according to any find criteria you input. For example, you may want to gain a snapshot of how all the year 2 students have performed over the last 6 testing periods or you may want to see how the boys in your school are performing compared to the girls. You can even observe the progress of your entire school over time if you follow the importing procedure once individual classes start using the program over a reasonable time frame.
We have retired the dedicated network version. If you require the V3 update for your existing V2 network version, please contact us and we will assist.
So many other features: From the welcoming day screen, you can see and add to daily messages, utilize the electronic whiteboard calendar, move forward and back in days and months forever, record student absences, consents for extracurricular activities and borrowings (the students can manage the sports borrowing section!), even see who's having a birthday in the school! Go to student records for managing homework, behaviour infringements, awards, special Negotiated Curriculum Plans, even dialling/emailing parent contacts as well as printing automated envelope labels and letters to parents / students. Go to the subjects and manage assignments, tests and marks, set gradings, curriculum outlines and comments for automated reports. View past histories. Record group testing data, such as reading and spelling ages. This database calculates chronological ages automatically.
