Managing CAS Experiences


There are three components to manage before a CAS Experience should be marked as Complete on ManageBac:

  • Approving CAS Experiences
  • Completing CAS Questions and Reflections
  • Obtaining Supervisor Reviews

Approving CAS Experiences

CAS approval on ManageBac does three things:

1. It allows students to see that their experience is appropriate for CAS.

2. It is one of two steps needed before students can request supervisor reviews.

3. It removes the New Changes flag from the student roster, indicating that the experience has been seen.

As a CAS Coordinator or Advisor, you can approve experiences in two ways:

1. Via Dashboard > CAS > Approvals

Admins and CAS Advisors who have been assigned to their students can approve their experiences from under theCAStab in theDashboard. This will provide a list of experiences pending approval. Tick the box next to each experience to approve it, or hover your mouse over the experience title to access theRejectoption.

Please note that rejecting an experience will not remove it automatically from student worksheets. It will notify the student via e-mail, who can then edit or delete the experience as needed.

2. Via the Student CAS Worksheet

On the student's worksheet, you will see all of the student's experiences. Find the experience that has not been approved by looking for the clock icon. Clicking the experience name will allow you to approve it.

Choose the Approved option from the dropdown menu. This will notify the student that their experience has been approved and that they are able to proceed.

Completing CAS Questions & Reflections

To answer CAS questions or add reflections, students should go to either the CAS Questions or Reflections & Evidence tabs within a CAS experience on their worksheet.

CAS questions are added by an admin at your school, and can be customised for each year group. To learn more about adding questions, click here. If no questions are added, this tab will not be visible.

Click Add Reflections and Evidence on the right navigation panel to do so. Reflections and evidence can be added in the following formats: files, photos, journal entries, embedded video links or website links.

Each reflection can be linked to various learning outcomes, and you can filter by outcome on the left side of the page.

Click on the three lines icon on the right to switch to blog view (recommended for reading journal entries in full). Click on the four squares icon to switch  to gallery view (recommended for viewing pictures and files).

Obtaining Supervisor Reviews

If the experience has been approved and all reflections and evidence have been added, students can click Request Supervisor Review. This will send an e-mail to the experience supervisor to review online (see sample below). The Supervisor Review email will also contain the experience Reflections & Evidence.

Note: The Supervisor email will be locked once students click Request Supervisor Review.

Alternatively, if there is no supervisor email listed, students can click on CAS Completion Form. This will create a PDF of the experience information which can be printed and signed by the experience supervisor manually. The CAS Completion Form will not include the Reflections & Evidence.

If the supervisor review needs to be reset, the CAS Coordinator or Advisor can click Complete Supervisor Review to edit or remove the review.

If the experience is from a CAS Project Group on ManageBac, the supervisor can submit reviews directly via the Groups tab. To learn more about this process, click here
