Education Programs. For larger implementations, 3 benefits of
particular interest are…
Skill Manager™ and Attendance
Manager™ have been proven in a variety of career
and technology education programs, from individual classrooms
to department-wide or school-wide implementations.
- Import Wizard – As part
of setting up Skill Manager and Attendance Manager, you
need to define your students, courses, classes, and competencies.
While all of this information can certainly be keyboard
entered, the Import Wizard makes it easy to transfer all
of this data from your other software systems with just
a few mouse clicks. Whether it be school administrative
software, student management software, or simple grade book
programs, your existing data should NOT have to be retyped
into Skill Manager or Attendance Manager. Acceptable file
types for importing include text files, spreadsheet files,
and database files.
- Skill Manager Competency Library
– Skill Manager is designed to manage YOUR competencies
and objectives. We encourage you to continue using the curriculum
and competencies that are already in use in your classrooms.
But for programs looking to add to their programs or align
their programs with state and industry standards, we offer
the Skill Manager Competency Library. This extensive list
of competencies is offered at no additional cost with the
Skill Manager program. It includes competencies in over
400 Career and Technical Education Programs. Most of these
are federal, state, and industry standards.
- Attendance Manager Centralized Attendance
Processing – Attendance Manager offers many
options on how student clock times can be acquired. In school-wide
implementations, students can clock-in and clock-out of
individual classroom locations and the attendance status
of these classrooms can be immediately available to the
front office via your local-area-network or separate network
of Attendance Terminals. Up-to-the-minute reports are immediately
available at the front office.
