Well, this one is a little sensitive - the answer is as much or as little as your company chooses!
Whether your partner schools will access EdPlace assessments manually (more on this here) or via API (more on this here), there will still be a requirement to set up students and assign the most relevant assessments to them. Therefore, an important decision to make is, who will do this? Will it be the company sales or support teams, the NTP tutors or the schools themselves? Based on this decision, what your schools need to do will vary so it is worth checking with your line manager before proceeding if you are at all unsure about your company's approach.
For schools not managing admin they will need to:
- Share student registration details with you (which will already occur as part of the NTP registration process). Here at EdPlace, we simply need to know first and last names, current year groups, and if a different assessment may be required (e.g. if a student is working several years behind expectations);
- Manage students completing the assessments (or this may be organised by your NTP tutors);
- Access results and work with NTP tutors to create groups and personalised learning plans (if your company chooses to do so).
So not a lot, in a nutshell, to access a huge wealth of data to inform their own teaching and be able to demonstrate the effective progress of their most disadvantaged students.
For schools managing admin they will need to:
- Create student accounts at www.edplace.com/teacher;
- Assign students their assessments;
- Manage students completing the assessments either within EdPlace accounts or via secure URL links (or this may be organised by your NTP tutors);
- Access results and work with NTP tutors to create groups and personalised learning plans (if your company chooses to do so);
- Reassign the same assessment to all students at the end of the tuition block and manage the completion of these.
So a little more to do here, but still not a great deal, for a huge amount of value-added.
