Learning Platform

Unlike other learning platforms, ManageBac was designed to be curriculum-specific
and solely focused on the needs of international schools.

Our unique database design & architecture means that:

  • When you create a class, you choose from authorised subjects, which allows teachers to collaboratively share curriculum, resources and tasks effortlessly.
  • Differentiation in Languages is supported naturally within mixed level classes allowing units and assignments to be set at discrete Phases.
  • When a curriculum review occurs, we do the heavy-lifting to update the assessment criteria, objectives and grade boundaries centrally saving each school countless hours every year.
  • Transition years are managed seamlessly e.g. historical assessment tasks & unit plans were carried forward for MYP Next Chapter with a prompt to update criteria.
  • Class
  • Tasks
  • Annotations
  • Assessment & Reporting
  • Academic Progress

By providing an integrated curriculum & unit planner, attendance and assessment gradebook with reporting, teachers have everything organised in one place without having to move between separate systems.

Easily create tasks and embed resources including files, websites, videos and books. Optionally customise assessment criteria with task-specific clarification.

With TurnItIn integration enabled, you can easily browse originality reports with one-click.

Annotate coursework on the web & mobile using the Box (Crocodoc) reader.

Evaluate progress and make a best-fit judgment with term-based comments and criterion grades. Optionally evaluate ATL skills or interdisciplinary units.

1-7 grade boundaries are updated annually by subject group from the MYP Coordinator's Handbook allowing for automatic summing and conversion of the final grade.

Students can build their coursework portfolio naturally by submitting tasks over time, and parents track academic progress and browse report cards directly online.

Meaningful communication of MYP assessment with personalised criterion descriptors, which are tailored to each student with their name.
