Supervisor reviews are a way for specific experience supervisors to comment on the student’s progress, effort and commitment. In ManageBac, you can integrate these comments directly into the student's CAS Worksheet.
How to send a Review Request
In order to obtain an online CAS Review from their experience supervisor, students must add at least one Reflection to the Reflections & Evidence tab. Their CAS advisor must also mark the experience as Approved. Only then will the Request Supervisor Review button be available. Either the student or the CAS advisor can click on this to send an email request to the supervisor.
The Supervisor's view
Once the Request Supervisor Review button is pressed, ManageBac will send an email to the supervisor. Please note supervisors do not have to have registered accounts on ManageBac to fill out the linked survey - anyone with a valid email address is eligible to receive email notifications.
The supervisor will click on the link in their email to complete a survey about the student's participation. They will be asked to comment on the student's progress. They will also be asked to tick each outcome the student completed successfully, and confirm the student completed the experience successfully. When they are done, they can click Submit Final Review to add the review to the student's worksheet.
Reviewing multiple students
In-school supervisors who are supervising multiple students' experiences can see who they still need to write reviews for via Dashboard > Reviews & Progress > CAS > Reviews. They can also filter by Pending, In Progress, Reviewed and Incomplete on the top of the page.
If the supervisor is leading a CAS Project via the Groups tab, they can also use the group to review their students. To learn more, click here.

1. Supervisors List
The advisors who have review requests Pending, In Progress, Reviewed and Incomplete will show in this list. Those with no requests are not shown. The list outlines the total number of requests sent to the supervisor, the amount incomplete, and broken down into In-school or Out-of-school supervisors.
2. Message Supervisors
Via Message Supervisors, you can email all supervisors. A subject and message are required. This will be sent as an email once Send Message is clicked.
Reviewing students' CAS Reflections & Evidence pieces
CAS Advisors and administrators can review students' reflections and evidence pieces for all CAS experiences via the student's CAS Worksheet > Browse Reflections & Evidence page.
This would allow the user to view reflections filtered by type, Learning Outcome or CAS Experience.
It would also allow the CAS Advisor or admin to review the CAS Reflections and Evidence pieces for multiple students using the arrow icons at the top of the right navigation panel. This reduces the need for CAS Coordinators to open specific CAS Experiences to see which reflections students posted for each of their Experiences.
At the same time, from the right navigation panel, the Reflections and Evidence can be exported to PDF in the CAS Documents section for a student.
