Create a smarter platform that is well managed and easy to use for teachers
IES 5 (Instructional Expert System) is TEAM Model's new-generation platform that integrates cloud technology and resources, providing a large platform for teachers to personally and conveniently integrate pre-class, in-class, and post-class applications (please refer to the introduction of IES Smarter Teaching Service). The IES 5 Smarter School Management Service provides school-level applications and management services, allowing school administrators to centrally set up school term, subject, grade, and class periods; create class and student lists, courses with corresponding classes and teachers for the whole school; question bank and teaching resources for each subject; initiate cross-class assessments, surveys, and polling activities to help schools systematically apply and manage.
The first management function of Smarter School Management Service is the setting of school operation structure, including semester, subject, grade, class period, etc. The administrator can adjust the setting to meet the arrangement of school policy. For example, if the school year is a three-term system, you can define the period and name it yourself or set the number of grades for three-year, five-year, and six-year systems, etc. This allows schools to flexibly set the basic operation environment according to their own needs.
School basic operation information is easy to manage
Meet the needs of different academic systems and grades
A clear picture of smarter classroom and cloud services authorization
Authorization management function provides school administrators with a clear view of the serial number of HiTeach in the school's smarter classroom, as well as the authorization modules and device usage status. It lists the authorization items of the TEAM Model Cloud service, the authorization period, the usage status of the school's data storage service space, allowing administrators to better manage the use of software and services in the entire school.
Unified management of teacher authorization, class list, course arrangement
Flexible teacher account and authorization management
Teachers who have already registered their accounts on the TEAM Model Cloud can join as school members through self-application or invitation by school administrators. The administrator can assign the school's data storage service space (referred to as school space) to the school members as their personal data storage service space (referred to as personal space).
►For school space distribution, please refer to the introduction of Data Storage Service
In addition, different function modules of Smarter School Management can be assigned to school members according to their job descriptions, giving them different access rights, such as whether they can view or modify authorization management information, view or modify school content management, manage course settings, curriculum schedule management, participate in school question bank management, and view learning status analysis of school assessment.
Systematic class and student list management
Besides school administrators and teachers, students are also important members of an AI smarter school. School administrators can quickly create student lists and account information by importing data in Excel batches, including class, account, and grade level information. With these lists, courses can be built and students can log into the platform based on their account information.
Teacher-friendly course arrangement
It is very easy to arrange the school's courses. By assigning new courses to the corresponding teachers and the class lists, it is quickly created and can be used by the teachers after logging into their accounts. Not only does it save teachers the trouble of creating course lists, but for administrators, it also allows them to arrange cross-class and cross-course joint surveys or assessment activities, and the results can be quickly summarized and analyzed in one fell swoop.
School teaching resources are jointly created and available to the entire school A hub for multimedia teaching materials for schools
By storing teaching resources in school content, such as teaching materials (HTEX files, PPTX files), pictures, audio, PDF, WORD, and EXCEL, every teacher can access them in the cloud at any time.
School question bank: The more accumulated, the more valuable
The school question bank is like a treasure box of questions for the entire school assessment activities. The platform provides a comprehensive filtering function (by grade, subject, question type, difficulty level, cognitive level, etc.) for easy searching and viewing. More importantly, it provides a variety of ways to design test papers, whether you want to design them with AI or manually, you can quickly pick out the questions you want, and then start the assessment activity!
●MS Word question papers are the best source of questions: Many teachers use Word to edit test papers and then print them out for students to take. These Word question papers can be imported into IES as long as there is information set for each question such as the answer and type of question, and then turned into test questions and papers on the cloud!
In addition, the mathematical formulas, chemical formulae, graphs, etc. in these questions are automatically transformed into elements of cloud questions, almost like Word.
●Mainstream questions are supported: including true-false, single answer, multiple answers, cloze, comprehensive, and even short answer, calculation questions, etc. In addition, the questions can include pictures, multimedia, and other different materials, regardless of the listening or video questions can be used!
●Two-way analysis table of test papers: Most teachers are concerned about the overall coverage of the paper to examine its appropriateness, such as the distribution of question types, difficulty, subjective and objective questions, and key concept distribution. The IES provides not only the above-mentioned visual statistics charts, but also a two-way analysis table of test papers, so that teachers can see all the important points they care about!
●Question analysis and remediation resources: After the assessment, the results are the basis for the students' subsequent review! If each question includes an explanatory note or more reference resources, then students will have ample resources when they review on their own and can review more effectively. Therefore, we offer schools to add explanation or reference resources to the questions to increase their effectiveness in assessment.
Key Concept bank for accurate review
The school management team can first discuss and determine the key concepts for each subject to be taught, so that the key concepts associated with the questions can be added when the test questions are created. Why do we need key concepts and a Key Concept database? The main purpose is to build a deeper and broader application value for the question bank. As the volume of questions accumulates and more key concepts are covered, students will be able to learn to refer to the past through the review and practice of assessment activities, and to grasp the strengths and weaknesses of each key concept more clearly, so that they can solve problems more clearly and conduct remedial learning more accurately.
Start school events - assessment, poll, and survey in one-stop
Multi-format assessment and testing activities
Assessment activities are the best way for schools to evaluate the overall effectiveness of learning.
IES 5 has a complete and easy-to-use mechanism for creating assessment activities by selecting test papers from the question banks. Teachers can choose assessment modes such as online, smarter classroom, or OSS Script (OMR and Writing), choose assessment types such as summative tests, mock tests, and quizzes, and they can do cross-class and cross-grade assessments and conduct school-wide assessment activities.
As mentioned earlier, the establishment of school question and exam files bank can be of great value for assessment activities, and a single test paper can be used for multiple methods of assessment: ●OSS Script (OMR and Writing) Assessment: Use test papers to give test directly and pair up with an automated answer sheet scanning system to correct objective questions automatically while teachers correct subjective questions online. In the same way, grade reports are automatically generated. ●Smarter Classroom Assessment: Selected classes to participate in Smarter Classroom Assessment will be notified during the smarter classroom session; use HiTeach Smarter Teaching System to allow students in using IRS feedback mechanism to conduct simultaneous student-led assessment activity.
If the students use Web IRS, the question types can cover cloze, short answer, and calculation. Students can also participate in the assessment online.
●Online Assessment: Students can use the AClass ONE Learning Companion on the TEAM Model Cloud to take online asynchronous tests. Any device with access to a web browser through Internet can be used, allowing students to complete the tests within a limited time frame.
In addition, schools can further purchase the PLAYTOL Dynamic Assessment Analytics to produce more detailed statistical data, such as result reports, class analysis, learning stability analysis, and test question analysis directly after the assessment. The school management team can grasp the test results immediately and help to plan remedial strategies to improve the overall school performance. (More advanced analysis needs to be done with the PLAYTOL Dynamic Assessment Analytics)
Polling is a common group activity on campus. IES 5 provides cross-class and cross-grade polling activities and supports multi-media (e.g. video, picture, audio) functions. Polling cycle, number of votes, anonymity, repeat voting, etc. can be set. ● Can be used for classroom or cross-class polling
● Teachers can enter poll descriptions and options, and can add customized multimedia (video, picture, audio, etc.)
● Set polling cycle, the number of votes, anonymity, repeat voting .... etc.
IES 5 provides cross-class and cross-grade surveys and supports multimedia (video, image, audio, etc.) functions. School administrators can add a survey
● Can be used for classroom or cross-class survey
● Can enter descriptions and options, and can add customized multimedia (video, picture, audio, etc.)
