Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation refers to a system of school based assessment that covers all aspects of student’s development.
It emphasizes two fold objectives.Continuity in evaluation and assessment of broad based learning.
Teaching and non-teaching staff (Integrated with Alert and Leave Accounting modules)
Student Attendance (Integrated with Parent Alert System and also School Bus System)
Period/Subject-wise Student Attendance possible depending on deployment and configuration of multiple RFID readers.
Late Marks and Early Departures are also captured.
System allows definition of ‘Expected Attendance-Time In/Out’ profile at Grade Level with override facility at individual Staff level which could be requirement for part-time teacher/lecturer.
Mobile Application "Android" is being developed to capture Student Subject-wise Attendance; data will be sent to the server thru simple SMS for further processing.
System supports and fully integrates use of RFID cards for automatically recording Attendance, Late Marks and Early departures. Optionally, parents can be informed of child’s ‘School Arrival/Departure’. Attendance Data Capture:
Question BankComprehensive and powerful tools are available to set and use Question Bank . The entire exercise of Teaching-Learning Homework-Assignment-ExamQuestionPapers-Self Learning-Self Evaluation can be built and executed around Question Bank. It not only caters to multiple model answers and links for extended learning but provides feedback based on ‘interpretive evaluation’ techniques – especially in ‘Multiple Choice’ Answers. QB becomes excellent tool for preparing Students for competitive exams at State and National level.
Broad Question Categories can be defined
True / False
Fill in the Blanks
Solve / Explain / Prove
Short Answer / Detailed Answer / Essay
QB can be developed for each subject-standard with link to Syllabus-topic or Book-chapter
Complexity Level / Time / Marks can be assigned to Question
Hint(s) can be specified
Multiple Answers can be stored
QB can be used to define Homework /Assignment and linked to Calendar-Time Table-Period
QB can be used to define ‘Question Paper Profile’
Question Papers can be generated using one of the profiles using RANDOMISATION technique
Several such Question papers can be generated for Student-Practice-Self Evaluation
Institute can provide this as Charged Service for Registered Students.
Homework and Assignments are specified by the TEACHER for all the STUDENTS of the DIVISION. There may not be much difference in the way Homework and Assignments are handled.
Set Homework using QB Questions/Answers related to a particular CHAPTER or Syllabus-Topic in Q-Bank may be useful in defining HOMEWORK mainly because ANSWERs are available. STUDENTs may be given controlled access (‘After Homework is Completed’/’After STUDENT has Attempted’) to make the whole exercise more meaningful.
Homework can be evaluated graded/marked.
STUDENT may be WARNed on continual failure to complete the HOMEWORKs; parents may also be ALERTed.
Another approach could be to have pre-set HOMEWORKs for each topic/chapter and STUDENTs are expected to complete the same as Topics/Chapters are taught in the class.
Module function can be used to enter grade/marks, comments for each student for particular Homework / Assignment
Mobile Application to collect STUDENT-wise marks, say 1 to 9, for all the assigned Homework(s) is being developed.
For lower standards Parents can be notified of the homework / assignments
Library module helps Schools/Colleges (Institutes) to maintain library books along with the basic library functions of loaning books (‘Issue’ and ‘Return’) to Students / Staff and others. Books can be borrowed from ‘OTHER’ institutes/Libraries/individuals. Similarly books can be lent to ‘OTHER’ institutes/Libraries/individuals.
The module maintains Publishers data, Book details under Publisher / Author and can be linked to ISBN information.
Each copy of the Book / Media is separately tagged and kept track of. Book storage information – Cabinet / Shelf etc. is also maintained.
Books can be RFID tagged or BAR Coded or Institute ID system can be followed.
Different rules (No of Books, initial period, extension period, number of extensions) can be set for Staff and Students. Alerts can be generated for books not returned after specified period limit. Fine can be charged for ‘Very Late Returns’ depending on Institute policy. If Book is not available, ‘Request for the Book’ can be queued.
TASK – Setting Up, Allocation and MonitoringModule provides the following functionality:
Define Task and set priority Ex. “Complete Answer Paper Evaluation for MidTerm by 14 Aug 12”.
Assign task to Individual or ‘Each member of Group’ Ex. ‘All Class Teachers’
Set Target date for Task Completion for each Assignee.
Assignee reports progress along with comment.
Assigner can keep track of assigned tasks; can view progress and ‘comment’ on the progress.
TASK may PROGRESS, get COMPLETED or could be re-SCHEDULED or SUSPENDED.
Pre-defined tasks can be linked to future EVENTs; such tasks are auto-generated and assigned based on criteria set.
eTechSchool has inbuilt Student Portal (Question-Bank, Self Test and Evaluation, Performance Tracking, easy access to Homeworks, Assignments), Parents Portal (Access to Child’s Attendance, Performance, Homework, School Activities, Holidays, Vacations, Exam Schedules, eLearning tools for further studies).
RFID stands for ‘Radio Frequency IDentity’. The physical card with each having unique identity is assigned to each Student / Staff (Teaching , Non-Teaching). This system is OPTIONAL and may not be used by the Institute. RFID system is used for ATTENDANCE, Bus School and Library.
RFID Readers (Short range or Long Range) are installed at Entry/Exit points to capture Staff/Students movements. RFID Readers are configured to communicate with the Application server where raw data received thru Reader(s) is processed in real-time. All Attendance related processing is based on such data.
For Library system RFID card can be used along with hand-held RFID Reader or like SWIPE Card to establish identity of the Borrower.
If School bus is fitted with RFID Reader, Student RFID card drives the entire functionality of School Bus Module. Functionality can be further enhanced if Bus is also fitted with GPS device (Vehicle Tracking System).
