As an Automotive Technology Teacher, you know first hand the demands on your busy day. Shuffling your students between classroom, shop, computer lab, and intern job sites, staying current with advances in technology, and keeping your attendance and performance reporting accurate and current leaves little time for much else.

Let Skill Manager™ and Attendance Manager™ be your classroom assistant! Both of these products have proven essential in automotive programs across the country. With Skill Manager, you get the complete and current NATEF Task Lists... Automotive Technology, Collision Repair, and Diesel/Truck.Whether your program is NATEF certified or not, these competencies are a great start to managing and reporting student assessment.

And if you are or will soon be going through the NATEF Certification process, Skill Manager has proven itself many times over as satisfying their documentation requirements. The competencies come with their Priority designations (i.e. P-1, P-2, etc.) in place and you can sort and report them based on this parameter. You can even cross-reference your own competencies, tasks, and jobs to these Industry standards.

With any of the Palm™ handheld devices or portable bar code readers, your scoring of these competencies is quick and easy. These portable devices are small enough to fit in a pocket and travel with you wherever student learning takes place. Being able to score student competencies “real time” as it happens means that your end of semester assessment reports are extremely accurate…no more trying to remember what your students did at the end of 3-4 months. And the reporting takes no time at all because it’s all done, just click and print.

The Attendance Manager system is a great complement to Skill Manager. If implemented together, they share the same student, course, and class files so you don’t have to enter your data twice. Attendance Manager records and tracks your students’ attendance records and keeps a running total of cumulative class time. And with students clocking-in and clocking-out, it promotes an essential job skill and keeps them on time and ready to work. The detailed reporting has proven to be a very effective tool in defusing any attendance discrepancies with your students.
