Infromation:

Guardian View is navigated by tabs and will default to the 'Student Details' tab. Each tab displays a page divided into panels. Some are available as a default butu many can be made visible or not through the use of Moodle permissions applied to the parent user role in Moodle. For the demo site we make most tabs and panels visible.

  1. The breadcrumb menu will show parents where they are and by clicking each tab you can navigate to different pages of information.
  2. This is a message section which can be configured to be visible or not for each tab.
  3. Brief details about the child.
  4. Today's timetable.
  5. Recent attendance for the current week and last week. (Please don't take any notice of the dates because we use our set of data.) Publication of attendance can be delayed by up to 14 days to allow for checking prior to publication.

Action:

Click the 'Subjects' tab and then click the 'Religious Ed' sub-tab.

Information:

For a parent this is probably the most important page of information because it displays information from the school MIS and Moodle on the same page. In fact, it provides all the information needed to support their child's learning for that subject.

  1. Teacher e-mail address. This is configurable and does not have to be visible but it is a point of contact for parents who need additional support to help their children.
  2. Information from the school MIS visualising progress over time including both attainment and target data if available.
  3. Any resources/activities identified by teachers as being a homework will be listed here. If the child has attempted the work or it is overdue that information will also be displayed. Each item listed has a direct link to the resource or activity so that parents do not have to navigate through courses and topics to find the resource or activity. (Action: Click the resource/activity description.)
  4. Where a teacher has added grades and comment to the Moodle Gradebook they will be visible to parents.
  5. Reports created and published via ZiLink Report Writer will be listed here.

In summary a parent can see information about attainment, progress, the work that their child is undertaking and the grades and feedback from teachers about the work completed.
