Overview

In Class observations you can view last observations from: 


  • All - View the most recent observation entered for a student from all the classes, groups or subjects the student belongs to. This is the existing Class observations function. 
  • My class or subject - View the last observation for your class, group or subject as well as any other teacher’s observations alongside yours. This new view will support teachers in: 
    • monitoring students’ demonstrations of literacy and numeracy understandings in their own specific class, group or subject context
    • gaining a comprehensive understanding of their students’ skills by being able to see how consistently they are demonstrating them in different learning area contexts
    • collaborating with other teachers on school identified priorities in literacy and numeracy and targeting literacy and numeracy across the curriculum.
