This Microsoft Excel program allows you to organise report comments into subject areas and will automatically update your comments into student profiles by inserting a relevant code. Another feature includes a tracking formula that counts the number of times you have used a particular comment across all student profiles.
This program will save you time and money, as it allows you to create and modify your own report comments and to organise student profiles based on subject areas.
Detailed instructions are provided to help you navigate between the worksheets and shows you how to set up your class list, build your own comment bank and assign comments to students with ease.
Continued use of this program over a number of years takes the burden out of creating a new set of comments each year. Once a student's profile is complete, copy and paste the cells to Microsoft Word to make any final amendments. Comment Bank Builder can also be used throughout the teaching term when you have a new piece of assessment. For example, you can record each comment from excellent to developing, which corresponds with your assessment rubrics.
