As local, state and federal regulators redefine the way students
are assessed, teachers are forced to deal with the administrative
tasks that accompany these changes. These burdensome chores
slow you down and cut into the time you'd like to be spending
with your students. Unfortunately, we can't legislate more
hours in the day. But we can offer you the next best thing…Skill
Skill Manager is a complete, turnkey solution for recording,
managing, and reporting student competencies and skills which
virtually eliminates competency tracking paperwork. The recording
of your competencies can be done at your PC or with any of
a variety of portable devices including cordless bar code
readers or any of the Palm™ OS devices. These PDA handheld
devices can go with you wherever student assessment takes
place…in the class, shop, lab, clinic, or job site making
the recording of student competencies quick, easy, and accurate.
- Great for Teachers - Don't
know much about computers? Don't be intimidated by Skill
Manager. The software is extremely easy to use and the PDA
handheld unit is usually all you'll need. The PALM device
walks you through the appropriate steps to record student
performance. When finished, simply place it back in it’s
docking cradle and your recordings transfer immediately
into the student files in the Skill Manager software.
- Great for Administrators -
Changing local, state and federal standards are constantly
altering the way schools need to manage and report students'
educational progress. Skill Manager keeps track of those
changes for you, and helps you compile your results into
clear, concise reports. And because Skill Manager displays
the data immediately, administrators know the information
is being retrieved and distributed correctly.
The Skill Manager software is designed to accommodate your
competency objectives, whether they be industry standards,
state standards, district standards, or simply curriculum
that you’ve defined. But as an added benefit, the Skill
Manager software comes with a library of career and technical
program competencies in over 400 different program areas,
including many national, state, and industry standards. The
software also includes some very powerful ‘Cross-Referencing’
features allowing you to align the competencies you teach
in your classroom with any state or federal standards.
Skill Manager reporting capabilities are clear, concise and
right at your fingertips. Competency profiles, for student
or class, for one set of competencies or another can be created
in a snap. Performance scores can be averaged and reported
a variety of ways and at varying levels of detail. And each
scoring of a single competency can be reported showing competence
over many attempts. And if you don't see what you need from
the existing reports, you can either create your own using
Skill Manager's data files or contact Diploma Technologies
to discuss your specific reporting needs.
