Daily tracking?

Asked by Vadim Peretokin on 2015-06-08

I've got a requirement that a teacher needs to, with each student, record daily in a free-text field. What would be the best mechanism in SchoolTool to record this?

Does each teacher need to do this each day?

Vadim Peretokin (vperetokin) said : #2

Yeah - each day that the teacher sees the student.

The school would also like to be able to generate reports from that data - I'm hoping that can be accomplished with the customized report cards feature.

I read about journals and activities, but all of them seem to require a grade and don't allow adding custom fields like other parts of SchoolTool do.

The way you could do this in the current SchoolTool, if you wanted to, would be to create report sheets with comment entries for each day. http://book.schooltool.org/report-sheet.html

Right now you cannot simply add comments to the journal, but it is something we've discussed in the past.

Okay - so I would create a report sheet with "Report Activities" for each
day?

Yes. You probably would want to make a sheet per month or something.

Vadim Peretokin (vperetokin) said : #7

Hm. So if we define days 1-13 in a report sheet, and make our terms be
monthly, the sheet could be applied to every month?

Tom Hoffman (tom-hoffman) said : #8

Yes, I think, although this is definitely the kind of thing you'd like to
try on a scratch instance, or with a backup handy, to see if it really will
work the way you want.
