A brand new way for teachers to record and access student MIS data via a browser
Teacher's WebFolder provides browser-based access to the MIS, enabling teachers to enter and review data from within the classroom, at home, or anywhere with an internet connection. Being browser-based means there no client installation is required, and the system can be accessed on any platform, via a range of devices such as PCs and laptops as well as mobile devices such as the iPhone and iPod touch.
Teachers can take the register, monitor their class grades and behaviour as well as analyse and evaluate their class or individual pupil performance themselves, all through an intuitive and user-friendly interface. And thanks to its intuitive nature, virtually no training is required to get staff up and running with the system.
No client installation necessary as Teacher's WebFolder integrates with your existing curriculum and/or administration network. It can also operate with two separate networks via a firewall between the two.
- Attendance Register
- Pupil Assessment
- Alert Functions
- Messaging System
- SEN Information
- Student contact details
- Behaviour Monitoring
One-stop-entryTeachers are able to input and access essential pupil data such as their attendance, grades and behavioural events directly themselves without having to rely on administrative staff. Data ownership is assured leading to improved data quality.
Catch up from homeAs Teacher's WebFolder is a browser-based service, it can be accessed from anywhere. As long as you have an internet connection, you can catch up with work from home or anywhere else with an internet connection.
