Help Tutorials, Quickstart Guides and Resources to help you make the most of ManageBac.
ManageBac allows you to add custom questions that will appear to students every time they create an experience. This provides opportunity for more guided reflection.
You can create new questions via Year Group Manager > Overview > Edit Group Settings. Please note the Year Group Manager label may be customised by your school.
In the CAS Questions section, click Add New Question button to create a question. The blue navigation arrows will allow you to click and drag the questions to your preferred order. Hover your curser over a question to access the 'Edit' and 'Delete' icons. Click Save Changes once done.
Please note that CAS Questions are specific to their year level, so each year level may have their own (or no) CAS Questions.
By default, ManageBac does not enable hours tracking for the CAS programme, in line with current IB guidelines. However, schools can choose to enable and customise this option by year level.
Via Year Group Manager > Overview > Edit Group Settings, tick the Track activity hours for this group box under Activity Settings. You can also choose to show an Hours Chart on student worksheets, and customise how many hours are required in your CAS programme. Click Save Changes at the bottom of the page once done.
You can set automated e-mail reminders from the CAS tab of your IB group. Automated e-mail reminders will e-mail students who have not logged in or updated their CAS worksheets in the previous 14 days.
Under the CAS tab, click Automated E-mail Reminders.
You can enable and disable the reminders from this page as well as customize the e-mail subject & message by clicking on the reminder title. Then select Edit Reminder. Click Add New Reminder in the sidebar to add additional reminder emails.
Note: Be sure to disable reminders when school is not in session to avoid spamming student email inboxes.
Via Settings > School Settings > CAS & Service Action, any admin can edit the text they want their students and experience supervisors to see.
At the bottom of the page, you can select whether or not you want experiences automatically marked as complete once a supervisor review is submitted. This means the experience will be locked, and students will no longer be able to work on it.
Click Save Changes once done.
