The Teacher Dashboard is the first screen a teacher views when logging in to the web portal. The dashboard makes it convenient to access the most essential features of the web portal, which includes teacher resources, student enrollment numbers, attendance, and student results.
Create/Edit Course Schedule
Before the start of each course, a schedule is directly entered into the web portal. Throughout the course, teachers can view and edit class schedule[s].
View/Edit Student Enrollment
Schools can enroll students online or have students enroll themselves. Simply send the students rostering information to Horizon Education and we will do all the work. For schools that wish to have students enroll online, Educators get a list of all of the students and can edit as needed to accommodate shifting schedules - transfer students to another class, update a student’s information, delete a student, and export the entire enrollment list as a .csv file.
Access Teacher Resources
All of the necessary resources teachers need to run the Horizon Education course is accessible within the web portal. This includes the course syllabus, practice tests, answer keys, presentation files, etc.
SMS & Email Reminders
Based on student and Educator course schedule[s], students can receive automated SMS & email reminders for their upcoming practice assessments and/ or course sessions. Educators also have the ability to send out custom SMS and email messages throughout the course.
View and Take Attendance
Educators can take and monitor attendance. Once entered, Educators can view overall class attendance records along with percentages of students attending sessions and practice test administration.
View Student Results
Educators can quickly and easily view the student assessment results, including the option to view overall class average results, growth reports and detailed student score reports.
Online Student Enrollment
For districts/ school that want students to enroll online, Horizon Education has designed a simple way for students to sign up. They go to the Horizon Education website and follow a few minor steps. It's that easy! Once enrolled, they have 24/7 access to their scores and data.
After students enroll and create their accounts, they will have access to the Student Dashboard. Students can access their detailed score reports, view their course schedule, and access a FAQ/ Resources page that includes helpful course materials and resources.
