Many schools today still depend on paper based school management. If we look at academic information management such as reports creation, each class teacher in the School has to enter the student marks in result sheets. They will have to spend time entering marks for all the subjects, then calculate the total and grades for each of the subjects. This activity they have to do after every test, it would take at least a week after the assessments to enter all the scores for the students.
If the school conducts 9 tests and 3 exams in an academic year and say they have 10 classes and 10 teachers, 1200 man hours in a given Year will be spent on report card preparation for the entire school. If the same work is done using SchooliT, it would only take 150 man hours for a year.
If your school does not do it manually but use excel sheet to do the calculations, in this case you are only saving time on calculations, you would spend more time entering data for all the students in different excel sheets and arranging them, formating them and taking printouts. It will only save 20% of the time. But you will spend more time on formating and managing your excel sheets.
To setup excel sheets for every test, exam and for every year becomes a tedious task. And it becomes difficult to manage excel sheets over a couple of years. With SchooliT, once you input data it does all the calculations and formating, all the teacher has to do is hit ‘publish’ to get the report cards. The other advantage is that you can go back and forth between tests and exams as well as across academic sessions to track the performance of the students over the years. You can generate various graphs and reports for the same data at a click of a mouse.
Many schools are switching to electronic school management while a lot more are lagging behind. Excel sheets seem to solve the problem to a certain extent but it becomes unmanageable over the years; moreover parents cannot access their ward’s results remotely.
SchooliT helps schools to manage schools in a simple and smart way. It is a time saver for the School Management and for the teachers as well.
