Keeping track of milestones and outcomes for students
One of the biggest challenges for afterschool programs is keeping track of student milestones and outcomes. Aside from record-keeping, educators and administrators strive to monitor student progress with measurable results. This may be due to different criteria, ranging from creativity and connectedness to problem-solving.
With management software, educators can effectively create tracking and monitoring plans based on different verticals. For example, developmental milestones, documentation details, and test scores for every child can be recorded with detailed highlights.
EZReports allows assessors to create Student Analysis Charts for all children in their afterschool programs. These can be modified to show each child's progress towards learning outcomes. In addition, teachers and administrators can track the milestones and outcomes with customizable options for add-ons and changes.
Why are outcomes important?
Afterschool programs are designed to illuminate student minds and expand their educational horizons. Whether participating in academic activities, art, sports, or reading, students have access to a range of programs in schools, daycares, and after-school centers.
However, parents want feedback on how their children are functioning in school. By understanding which outcomes are measured in afterschool programs, they can also become active participants in the process.
Taking afterschool programs to new levels
Afterschool programs continue to evolve to meet the needs of students at all levels and grades. Initially started as supervision of students after the final school bell, today's programs do much more. For example, there are afterschool study programs, art classes, sports, and other activities. Even daycare centers have similar programs for students that may require additional learning in productive environments.
EZReports takes all this into account with our web-based Afterschool Management and Reporting Software. Over 5,000+ schools and community-based organizations across the country use our software to manage their programs. So if you admin a school, daycare, or afterschool center, our software can achieve your desired results.
Parent involvement in outcomes
Parents want to ensure their child is receiving the best education possible. After-school programs help students achieve specific goals by monitoring and tracking their progress. Regular reporting and outcomes tracking can put administrators and parents on the same page towards a child's education.
This develops a partnership with the educational venues, working together to help achieve outcomes you all set together. Measuring the progress of the child makes parents informed, effective advocates. While afterschool centers offer programs at brick-and-mortar venues, learning does not have to be relegated to the students. Parents can play a significant role in shaping their child's future.
Administrator and teacher involvement in outcomes
Inputs and activities equal outputs and outcomes. By taking a practical approach to observing and measuring student progress, teachers and admins can help students learn new knowledge and skills. They can also help students succeed in any goals or aspirations they have set for themselves. From preschool to grade 12, EZReports remain committed to excellence in creating innovative tracking programs for schools and centers.
