Updating students

The main thing to appreciate is that the update process cannot delete students or their records. It will simply update the class allocations for students and teachers and add new users.

Things to avoid

  • Do not include any school reps in the import.
  • Do not create any new classes. The update process will identify and create any new classes and fill with relevant students and teachers.

 How does it work:

  1. You need to have School representative permissions to complete this process.
  2. Archive any students and teachers that no longer participate in the course. This is best achieved by selecting relevant classes, selecting all students in the class and then use the archive students button (mauve). Check to make sure all students have been archived and that none are remaining in the relevant classes.
  3. Create a spreadsheet which includes all students for the current year. This should include name, email, status, school name and class allocation. See below:

  1. When the spreadsheet is ready it should be imported as follows:

  1. When import commences, the system will identify any existing emails and change the class allocations for each student. Old class allocations will be removed and replaced by new class allocations.
  2. Any new emails will prompt the creation of a new user. The system will generate an email confirming login credentials.
  3. At the end of the process any redundant classes can be deleted from the system. This will mean that although students will retain access to historic assignments teachers will not.

Subject Knowledge Audit - Summer Term 2020 - Upton Court Grammar School

Andrea Fleming, Head of Physics, Upton Court Grammar School

“We were very grateful we had EzyScience during lockdown.  Although we have set our own lessons EzyScience has complimented this work in terms of the videos and ongoing assessments to ensure our pupils have understood the work.  The online capability has allowed our pupils to access the work and engage with the subject matter whenever and wherever they can at the most convenient time."
 
"Many of our pupils were fasting during Ramadan so having EzyScience when they felt able to work with the feedback even at odd hours of the day was invaluable." 


"Without the usual end of year examinations, the ESAs also gives the chance to see where pupils are likely to be for the following year.  Certainly, we are very grateful to have taken on EzyScience this year, having it already up and running before the lockdown has made a big difference to us and to our pupils.”

Reporting Upgrade - Improved Activity Management

For most students, engagement doesn’t just happen. In this respect digital is no different to any other activity in schools. Regardless of the quality of digital or other activities, engagement has to be managed and clearly evidencing engagement is perhaps the most important aspect of this.

We have responded to this with some exciting service enhancements which use automation to take all the work and effort out of managing engagement while improving student awareness and accountability.

Effortless 121 reviews in just 2 clicks – rapid access to personalised assignment hub data or student gradebook via links in school management.

Assignment Hub and Gradebook Enhancements

A number of changes will be introduced to enhance the assignment hub:

TEACHER CHANGES

Teachers can now view a student's assignment hub via a link from the gradebook. This will provide a better overall perspective of student engagement with set work. Teachers using the link will land on "Current Assignments" which details all incomplete and partially complete assignments. Assignments will remain in this section of the assignment hub until they have been completed.

New spectacles for the online and socially distanced teacher!

When socially distanced classes start how will you look over a student’s shoulder if you are not able to walk freely around the classroom and need to maintain a 2m gap? How will you see what progress has been made?

The answer to this question is that you won’t, and you may not be able to do so for some time. This means that teachers will be faced with much the same problem as the lack of intel in online lessons.

This is where good tech can help to improve class awareness. It is almost like providing teachers with anew and more powerful pair of spectacles.

Currently an online lesson might look like this:

A new era for teaching delivery

4 weeks to get remote ready for the Summer term. 

Managing learning remotely is a different ball game which might swamp teachers unless their schools provide them with the right teaching tools to deliver.

The main issue is that remote teaching delivery is about more than just setting work which should be a tiny part of what teachers do in this new era:

  • Students need a lot of support to work independently – content needs to support engaging assessment techniques using scaffolded and visualised questions backed by worked answers following question attempts.
  • Most work needs to be marked immediately – posting too much paper-based work for students to complete on a school LMS will make it impossible to occupy students effectively as marking will slow activity to a snail pace.
  • Activity needs to be tracked so teachers can intervene – operating without automated and detailed tracking data will be ineffective
  • Teachers need to review work – not just right or wrong and % outcome, but they need to see the answers to identify mistakes and intervene
  • Parents and/or carers need to support the process – unless personalised activity and outcomes can be easily reported to parents this will become an impossibility
  • Teaching models need to change from content delivery and class management to learning direction - without access to activities providing end to end syllabus coverage backed by detailed and visual data records this will be challenging.

Without this type of approach attempts to teach remotely will under deliver as students will soon become bored and make use of the many opportunities to hide.

Thankfully there is time right now and over Easter to get ready and deliver a new teaching model that inspires parents and students.

Diagnostic and QLA support for this year's GCSE exams

The key to any successful intervention is to understand where the skills gaps lie at class and at individual level.

With this in mind we have recently released some diagnostic End of Section Assessments (Higher and Foundation versions). They identify weaknesses among a range of key skills for each syllabus area (there are 6 x 30 question assessments with foundation and higher versions).

Although students have the opportunity to address weaknesses themselves, the automatic analysis of activity means that teachers have access to invaluable learning maps that help to guide interventions.

 

This will help your colleagues gain better insights without any additional teaching tasks. There is NO teacher keying requirement. Your students and the system will do all the hard work.

These assessments lie at the heart of our integrated revision plans which provide a 10 week schedule leading up to exams. This will help organise, diagnose and resolve weaknesses at a crucial moment.

Users now also have access to interactive revision plans based on these assessments. Follow the links below for Higher and Foundation revision plans. The documents have links into our online course, which we are also offering in the package deal. If you would like to test out these assessments let me know and I can set, you up with a teacher login for free.

Click here for the GCSE Foundation Maths Revision Guide

Click here for the GCSE Higher Maths Revision Guide

The revision plans covers the main topics that students need to have brushed up their knowledge on before entering exams. It provides your students with 10 weeks of resources. The plans are based on our new End of Section Assessments.

Many students will also benefit from our exciting Snapshot booklets. The revision pages are very useful for those who want to keep their phone at the heart of their learning.

Exam package for all GCSE Students (£4.99 per student)

  • 1 snapshot booklet 
  • Free access to digital activities until 30/6/20
  • A free and interactive revision plan which you can download from this email

Important Update - GDPR, Snapshots, Student Gradebook changes, Revision Plan and Budgeting Details

A lot of additional functionality has been introduced over the last few months (hopefully you have noticed some helpful improvements). Before covering these, I need to start with some details regarding necessary GDPR actions.

GDPR

During March 2020 we will delete personal data held in our archive. As this should contain students and teachers that are no longer subscribed this should not present any issues for schools.

Please make contact to advise any reason why we should not delete your School’s archive.

Snapshot Booklets - School Discounts

We have upgraded the tech support for these. This delivers a vastly improved student experience.

  1. Students with course access can enjoy the support of the Booklet and call up video support via their phone but can also directly link into courses via the screen options on their phone. Students can buy direct for £9.99 a book or enjoy a heavy discount if a bulk school order is made (30 books min). £4.99 a book or £6.99 a book for Combined Science and £9.99 for a set of 3 Single Science books.
  2. Please note that the new technology does not support legacy booklets. These can be identified as they do not have any Zap instructions on the front page. New booklets will be required.
  3. Overall our expectation is that these books will have significant impacts on independent learning by integrating digital and print via mobile devices.
  4. Although we did not have time to produce booklets for Edexcel GCSE or Edexcel iGCSE. We will produce these for the next school year.

Christmas comes early at EzyEducation

Today some changes to the Assignment Hub were released. These apply to student users:

  • Current Assignments (previously assignments set)- any assignment that has not been completed will be accessed under this heading. There will be an option to start or resume
  • Other Assignments  - all completed assignments will appear under this heading. There will be an option to retake assessments (24-hour rule applies) or replay previous video assignments.
  • Colour coding relating to due/overdue has been removed.

 A more significant change will be a new student gradebook. This is scheduled for release on 21/12/19 and will provide a single Html page with details of

  • Total time on the system and total assessments and average outcome with subject splits.
  • Access to data on video and assessment records with options to filter to narrow the focus on specific parts of the course and generate pdf reports accordingly
  • Access to learning maps for EVERY assessment completed providing individual question outcomes and immediate access to question feedback. This is a big step forward and could transform exam preparations, but only for those students who work hard and complete assessments. This opportunity will depend entirely on the number of assessments completed.

 This will enter the final test phase soon thanks to the help of some of our student users. Watch out for updates.

  5. Any teacher can now set work for any class.
  6. The grade book report can now be accessed directly from the Learning Zone home page i.e. report icon visible. This applies to work set for single students and means there would be a filtered grade book for one student or for all the students the work was set for.
  7. Students will now have access to a retake button in the completed assignments section.
  8. Assignments are now attached to students (previously classes) so that assignments from all previous classes remain visible when students change class.
  9. School reps will now appear in the teacher tab. If you select and the edit you will see that they can now be specifically added to classes.
  10. The hub now shows who set work. However, this has not been tracked historically and will not show on legacy assignments. You will see -//- in the column.
  11. There is a sort arrow above the due dates so that assignments can be re-ordered by the due date.
  12. Overdue assignments are now highlighted in student pages with indigo (previously red).
