We've recently added so many exciting features that work best with an administrator account, that we thought it was only right to offer you the opportunity to give them a try for free.
Administrator subscriptions are just like teacher subscriptions except you can:
1. Invite other teachers from your school to SmartRubric, and then collaborate on rubrics and assessments, as well as share classes and student data.
3. Use the moderation tool to standardise grades and produce detailed moderation and grade justification reports for coursework.
SO! Until midnight Sunday, 17th of September if you upgrade to an Administrator Subscription using the offer code BACKTOSCHOOL, you get your first two accounts completely free for six months. That means you can share SmartRubric with a colleague at your school and make use of some cool collaboration tools for free. Normally, this wo…
It's exam prep season, which means that sadly, KS3 probably isn't getting much love at the moment.
To rectify this, I'm going to share a couple of really easy English Speaking and Listening lesson formats that take approximately zero planning and work from years 7-9, plus a couple of downloadable rubrics to make sure that you're evidencing progress.
If you're just here for the freebie rubrics, I've bundled together a discussion rubric and a presentation/speech rubric. You can download the bundle here. It's aligned with the current National Curriculum expectations for KS3 English, but you could easily adapt them up or down.
As always, if you are a SmartRubric user, you can bypass the printable and use the interactive version of these rubrics. It means all of your rich formative assessment data will be automatically captured, and targets, levels and grades will be generated for all of your students. They're in the template library. If you aren't a us…
I'm really excited to announce that beginning in September, we plan for SmartRubric to be able to integrate with some school management systems -- SIMS, ScholarPack, Bromcom, RM Integris, Arbor and Advanced.
That means that if you connect SmartRubric to your school MIS via Assembly, you and your department will be able to log in and get marking -- no need to set up classes and students!
The integration won't cost you anything if you have 15 or more teachers using SmartRubric, otherwise, SmartRubric will levy a £6/month flat charge. If you would like to start using SmartRubric in your department(s) starting from September with an MIS integration, I'd be happy to offer you a totally free trial with support for up to 20 teachers for the first half term (new paid customers only).
Just send me an email or schedule a call. I'd be delighted to have a chat with you about how this will work, and how SmartRubric could best support your department goals.
