Parents send their children to school to provide them an environment where they are taught selected subjects by professionally trained teachers. Different students learn at different rates. Some student learn faster than others. Some are slow.

Grading of students

In the past Teachers graded Tests, Homework, Assignments, Behaviour and other qualities manually, which was time-consuming. Anything manual, is not consistent and sometimes depends in the mood and state of mind of the Teacher.

School2016 offers a way to rank students in class-groups, year-groups and entire schools in a quantified way. Results are far more consistent.

Additional points

  • Ranking is a way to measure relative learning and retention of individual students and compare them to each other. Ranking can be a guide of past effort and a way to plan further effort.
  • In order to ensure that students reach the target standards, it is essential to evaluate and rank the child in different subjects.
  • Ranking of individual students helps figure out whether the academic goals are in line with the learning outcome of each student.
  • Ranking allows individual students to see how they have done in comparison to others in the same class/year
  • School2016 offers ranking in popular formats, but can be modified to schools specific formats if required

Method of grading

  • Multiple choice test provides a good way to determine the correct answer with certainty. This method lends itself to computerisation and must be used as often as possible
  • When Non-Multiple-Choice questions are compiled, possible answers and grades for answer could be compiled so
  • Essay-type answer must however be marked/graded by Teachers.
  • These may appear to be tedious at first but the benefits of standardised assessment will become obvious. Parents will feel more confident of schools using
