Assessing & Reporting via the Gradebook

Via the Gradebook > Tasks

From the Tasks tab, you can evaluate each student’s progress and provide assessment feedback for specific tasks.

By selecting an individual task, you can record a point-score or write anecdotal comments. If you need to update the task, you can also click Edit Task.

Via the Gradebook > Submit Term Grades

After selecting a student from the left menu, you can easily evaluate his or her overall progress for the term using the criteria and grading system selected by your PYP coordinator.

Once you have finished submitting your term grades, you can press Save Changes in green on the right. This will submit your grades to your Coordinator for final review, who will then be able to generate report cards.

The evaluation criteria shown are configured by your PYP Coordinator together with the academic term dates; however, several areas of the gradebook are dependent on your planning as a teacher.

Specialist Gradebook

To assess strands or learning outcomes for specific subjects, navigate to the Specialist Gradebook via the Subject tabs on the right side of the screen

ManageBac is designed as an integrated system for planning, assessment & reporting.

This means that in order for you to use the Gradebook effectively, you must have completed your planning prior to starting assessment (i.e. you must have planned all of your Units of Inquiry before beginning any assessment).

These are a few helpful things to keep in mind:

  • If your school evaluates the Transdisciplinary Skills. The skills displayed on your Gradebook are a composite of your planning across the Units of Inquiry covered during your academic term. This means if you have chosen Research Skills in Unit #1 and Thinking Skills in Unit #2, then we would show both Research Skills and Thinking Skills in your Gradebook.
  • We display the Units of Inquiry that are bound within your current academic term. This means that if the end date of your Unit of Inquiry (i.e. January W2) falls after the end date of the term (i.e. W4 December), it will be displayed in the subsequent term (i.e. Second Semester vs. First Semester). You can adjust for this by ensuring that the start date and duration of your units are set accurately.
  • If you assesses specific learning outcomes from the Scope & Sequence, these can be chosen through your Units of Inquiry, or through your assessed subjects by clicking Edit Scope & Sequence in the sidebar.

Your school may report at the end of each Unit of Inquiry or at the end of an academic term (e.g. quarter, semester). You can review prior periods in your gradebook by switching the terms in the top right corner.
