Learning & Assessment

We’ve spent years developing our school management ecosystem with one clear goal in mind: to empower school communities to help students grow. Fostering an environment where learning can flourish is central to that.

Easily manage assignments

Dogs can’t eat homework submitted online: we move your entire assignment process online, from drafting tasks to final marks. Quick, convenient and good for the planet!

Streamlined and centralised for ease

Forgo your submission folders and marking booklets. Compass puts all the tools you need for the creation, publication, monitoring and marking of assignments in one handy place. (And when reporting time rolls around, effortlessly integrate results into semester reports!)

    Improved parent engagement

    The involvement of parents and carers is key to educational success. Maximise their engagement by allowing them to view when assignments are due and receive automated SMS alerts for tasks that haven’t been turned in.

      Go beyond the school gates

      Boost clarity and communication within your community by providing staff, students, parents and carers with the ability to converse with each other within specific homework tasks. Less confusion means better marks for Billy!

        Celebrate everyday progress

        Learning is about more than how well your students perform in their end-of-year exams. Compass isn’t limited by traditional test papers, allowing you to record and celebrate progress all year round.

        Tracking from Kindergarten to Year 12

        Record and compare a student’s progress with ease as data saved is collated and stored for year-to-year review, making it easier to visualise how Charlotte has progressed over her time in school.

          Quick and easy reporting

          Designed with speed and consistency in mind, staff can simply fill in a single template to record results, or add information at the click of a few buttons within a student’s profile, considerably reducing the time it takes to report progress.

            Make your marking multidimensional

            Go beyond a simple score and dig a little deeper to enrich the rationale behind the marking. Add comments, attach files, and include links for personal reference: all to customise, clarify and personalise student results.

              Reserve school resources

              Remove the stress and guesswork and let our intuitive function help you take control of your school’s resources.

              Reserving made easy

              Create trouble-free once-off or repeated reservations in advance. Plans change? Your booking can be edited or cancelled accordingly, avoiding any unwanted annoyance (and ensuring resources don’t go unused if they’re free!)

                Track a resource’s whereabouts

                Effortlessly keep track of all current bookings with our live schedule, or by exporting a list of reservations as either a CSV file or an iCal link for external calendars. Now there’s no excuse for resources being in the wrong hands.

                  Personalise your resources

                  With the ability to add groups, pictures, and descriptions, or decide whether a resource is for on-the-fly booking or requires approval; the choice, the resources, and bookings, are all in your hands.
