One of the awesome things about QuickSchools is how flexible it is, and how well it adapts to different school structures. Not only does the system work well with standard term- or semester- based grading, but it’s also great for schools with rolling admissions or rolling enrollment.
For our schools that might be interested in a rolling setup for their QuickSchools account, we’ve made a demo rolling admissions school. In this post, we’ll take a quick tour through the demo. Of course, if you have any questions, or are interested in setting up your account for a rolling admissions or enrollment system, feel free to chat in or email any time – we’d love to help.
A rolling enrollment school account looks very similar to a standard semester-based account. Here’s a look at the rolling enrollment students module. While its the same module as the semester-based account, information is tracked slightly differently.
Because with rolling enrollment, students move through classes and promote levels independently of each other, students’ grade level is not tracked in the student record for most semesters. Students classes and grades are recorded to a specific semester named and used for keeping records for all students when they in a particular grade. In effect, semesters are relative to the students’ grade-levels, rather than based on the calendar.
Students’ enrollment and grades are tracked within their respective grade-level semesters, regardless of which might be active at any given time. Oftentimes, the Self-Paced gradebook is very helpful for tracking grades to the correct grade-level semester.
Like a semester-based system, the rolling enrollment setup also lets students be enrolled in classes from different grade-levels. In this structure, classes of all different levels can be created within each grade-level semester.
All the other modules work just the same in a rolling enrollment or admissions account setup as in a standard semester-based one. In particular, if you’re curious about report cards, attendance, or transcripts, feel free to look around our site or the blog.
The rolling admissions and enrollment setup is great for schools that do not use a semester-based system. If students start at your school at different times and promote when they complete their courses, rather than at the end of term or year, this setup will work great for record keeping.
We hope this quick tour through the Rolling Admissions Demo Account helps clarify how QuickSchools might work for your school! If you’re interested in setting up your account this way, or would like more info on how it works, please let us know. We’d love to email or chat any time.
