{Experience Level: Advanced}

The International School of The Hague has a lot of students, lots of teachers, lots of classes, lots of parents and lots of movement. As the person who runs ManageBac in our school, I have the ongoing task of keeping students/classes/teachers/parents up to data and to provide our staff with clear information concerning student progress.
In the MYP and DP the information sought from colleagues is from “how many points are they on?” through to "Who is doing great and who needs support?”, "Which teachers haven't put in their grades and comments yet?”, "How is my subject doing?” and “Are teachers doing what they are supposed to be doing?”

However, I also run a department and teach classes - so what I ask myself is “How can I do this with as little effort as possible?” With all the tasks, grades, reports and expectations - I have developed a collection of digital tools to support ManageBac to get all the information where it needs to be.
The workshop will:
  • Show and share tools in Excel/VBA for processing the ManageBac outputs and providing timely information that immediately collate and summarise the data for staff and leadership teams. 
  • Show how the ManageBac API (through Google Apps Script) can be used for managing users and classes without manual imports.
  • Aim to provide general tips on managing ManageBac in your school and will allow the opportunity for participants to discuss and relate to their experiences.
