The Behavior Module can be used to enter information about students. It has the following visibility properties:
Teachers will be able to view their own notes but not the notes of other teachers.
Homeroom Advisors can view all notes but can only edit their own notes.
Admins have both view and edit rights on all notes.
Notifications are also sent:
The Note will not send a notification to Students.
The Note can be marked to be "Shared with Parents via e-mail".
An email will automatically be sent to the student’s Homeroom Advisor when a new note is added.
You may also export the information to excel:
You can export a record of all Behaviour & Discipline incidents via Settings > Behaviour & Discipline > Behaviour Notes History > Export to Excel.
Schools often will want fine-grained control over the visibility of these items. For example, there may be counselors or pastoral leads who need to be able to use this data set to inform their practice. Furthermore, data managers may wish to perform analytics on this data set.
If the above features are unable to meet the requirements of your particular use case, please find the public API endpoint "Get all Behaviors" which can be used as a part of an automatic process. The behavior module information can be extracted via this method.
In addition, we do provide a spreadsheet tool which uses this endpoint to extract the data to a Google spreadsheet. Using the permissions inherit in this productivity software, you can share the data as needed. Furthermore, you can use visualization tools to build charts or other insights.
The name of the function to run is `run_MB_Behavior`.
It will output all of the behavior notes available in ManageBac into a spreadsheet, such as:
Furthermore, you can add a trigger so that it'll update once a day.
Then, use the sharing feature to share with Pastoral Team, so that they have an overview of the information at a glance.
You can also use the above as a Data Connector to Data Studio, and build dashboards.
