We’ve Enhanced the Student-Parent Portal!
Student achievement information is now presented with a greater emphasis on the individual assessments and course outcomes for the entire course. An improved user experience is now in place for parents and students to view information related to assessments and outcomes. Information on attendance, late work, missing work, and achievement are all available to encourage ongoing communication and the improvement of student achievement.
A User Guide is available for students and parents which outlines the functionality in the portal. Videos are also available on the iNSchool website to demonstrate specific features within the portal. Go to the iNSchool website to access this user guide and videos - http://inschool.ednet.ns.ca/portal.
Teachers record student information electronically in a program called “PowerTeacher Gradebook”. Currently, teachers are at various stages of implementation using their Gradebook as they continue to learn all of its functionality. As they are learning, you may notice differences in the level of usage of Gradebook between teachers. This amount of usage will be reflected in the amount of information available in the Student-Parent Portal. You may have a child whose teacher is making maximum use of the technology; but you may have another child whose teacher is continuing his/her learning experience with the new software. It is important to be patient. Teachers may continue to record student marks and other information on paper for some time.
Please contact your child’s school if you would like to set up a Parent Portal account.
