Flexibility of Fedena Examination Module

Untitled-1
Fedena has an amazing ability to adapt to almost all kinds of examinations and reports that can ever happen in institutions. Thanks to features like Connect exams, Grading system and Exam type which gives the freedom to tailor the application to suit one’s need. Besides generating reports via Report Centre, the Report module has been introduced in the latest release to add yet another series of reports that one seeks for.

Let’s have a glimpse of all the key features that make this possible.

Connect Exams

This unique feature helps the user to connect different exam groups based upon the corresponding weights acquired. “Connect exams” calculate the Final marks of a student by adding the exam groups as per the weights attached. So, even if the final result depends upon the percentage of marks scored by the student, we are ready for the required transcript. All we need to do is to connect the exams accordingly to carve out a decent final report.

Grading System

The additional grading systems available in Fedena currently are – GPA, CWA, CCE. We can decide a grading system for a course while creating it. The course can now entertain the scores for the required report. For instance, if we are going for GPA or CWA, the system asks for the credit points of subjects, unlike its counterparts. However, if a user needs a customized grading system, the normal grading system is the one to be used.

Report Centre

The Report center in Examinations module is the hub of all possible reports that one can think of. Some of the interesting reports include exam wise reports, subject wise reports, grouped exam reports, and archived student reports. These sets help you to generate reports and monitor the progress of a student involving various criteria.

Examination settings

The examination settings that we do for grading levels, class designations or the Ranking levels can be divided based upon each of the courses rather than being generic for the institution as a whole. This allows the user to make different settings for each of the batches in the institution.

Previous batch Exams

This feature equips the user to add exam scores of previous batches. Thereby making the application adaptive to institutions where the students’ result are published after the batch transfer as in the case of the majority of engineering colleges in India.

Online Exams

Though the traditional ways of the examination are still prevalent, institutions have come up with an increasing need for the conduction of Online exams. This helps the student and the institution to be quick in conduction and the evaluation of the exam. Hence, giving yet another possibility to craft an examination as per the requirement.

Generate Reports

In the case where the user needs to have the revised result as well as the old result for an examination, Fedena offers the Generate reports option which will change the data in the report center to current result entered. Taking PDF reports before and after generating reports gives you the privilege of having two different versions of the same exam – revised and old result.

So these are some of the important pillars which makes Fedena generic for all kinds of examination and thereby making it more “Flexible”. Stay tuned for the next version of the article to see how Fedena adapts itself to cater to the needs of Academic Evaluation and Assessment worldwide.

Inspire Your Students to Develop the Habit of Reading

habit of reading

Reading is always considered to be a divine habit and is equally beneficial to students for their learning. Reading is not just about reading lines or a passage loudly; instead, it involves a proper understanding of words and to relate them to the overall meaning of the passage. Cultivating the habit of reading from an early age is beneficial as this could help them in their studies as well. Some students develop this habit naturally and love to spend their leisure time with books.

On the other hand, some don’t develop it naturally and have to be compelled to sit with books. As a teacher, you can play an eminent role in motivating your students to develop this habit. But forcing them to sit in front of books won’t be the solution. You have to encourage them to start loving books, not just sit with them. Some tips are shared below to help you out.

  • One of the best ways to encourage those kids for whom reading is quite a boring task is by letting them read graphic novels. Graphic novels include a lot of pictures and catchy dialogues that attract young kids and you can use this as a bait to develop the habit of reading.
  • Let your students select their own books to read. It is often seen that things that are mandatory are less attractive to them. Plus, encourage them to share books with other classmates. Let them choose from a collection of books that is appropriate for their age and help them enjoy the book they want to read.
  • Start the habit of discussing the books that students are reading in class once they finish. This one way will help you to know the level of understanding in your students when they read a book- whether they are able to grasp the idea and thought correctly. Moreover, this also develops the habit of storytelling too!
  • As a teacher, promote the habit of reading among parents as well. It has been seen that children tend to learn things from their parents and if parents read books at home, talk about it with their children will be a natural booster for the kids to start reading. Not all parents know the benefits of reading at home, but if they are made aware of the good that they can do to their children, they will surely be motivated to practice the habit at home.
  • If your student loves non-fiction, encourage them to read a lot of books on Nature, Space Science, History and others that are appropriate for their age.

When you motivate your students to take up reading seriously, make sure you are not being a tormentor who is forcing them to gulp down knowledge like a glass of milk. Reading for them should be fun and enriching experience. At no point should it be some kind of pressure for them.
