What do parents see?
Parents can see their child’s observations including photos, videos, audio files, and student badges through our dedicated iOS or Android app. Parents can also see any home learning activities that have been assigned, and add notes, images, videos and audio clips, of their child’s achievements. Parents can view and respond to teacher comments where a teacher has enabled this option. Additionally, a parent can download their child’s individual journal.
How do I edit an observation?
When looking at an observation, click on the three dots in the top right-hand corner. This will give you some options including ‘Edit.’ Also, from your PC, you can edit or add extra notes to an observation taken earlier on a tablet.
What is the difference between draft, saved and posted as a status?
A draft observation is an incomplete post that you can edit or remove at any time. If you choose to ‘save’ an observation the data will be added to reports and journals. If you choose to ‘post’ an observation it will also be shared with parents. Any status of observation can be removed. For saved and posted observations only text and attachments can be edited. If you want to make changes to students and/or assessments, you need to undo the post and/or save so the observation reverts to draft status. Additionally, parents can only respond to draft home learning activities, once you choose to save or post the activity, they can no longer contribute, and the entry will be added to student journals.
Can you delete an observation after it has been posted?
Yes, draft, saved and posted observations can all be deleted. You also have the option to undo a save or post.
Please note that if you delete a saved or posted observation or if you undo a save data from that specific observation will no longer be included in related reports and journals.
Can I have a teacher or senior leader see observations and data for more than one class?
Yes, an admin can see all classes and students and can add staff to any number of classes allowing them to see and add observations to multiple classes as desired.
