Does Enrollsy track teacher to student ratios?Support Home
Why is a Ratios page important?
First, the Ratios page gives administrators and teachers a quick and easy way to see all students who are checked in or out in one view that is filterable by program and class (see Dragonflies class in Figure 1).
Second, with the Ratios page we created some new functionality around teacher behavior and activity. We recently updated the teacher creation page to include a checkbox that allows you to create a teacher with visibility to all classes (see Figure 2).
This is a much needed enhancement and allows you to assign a primary and secondary teacher to a class, but still give other teachers access in case of a teacher absence or the consolidation of a class during the day...without having to actually assign all teachers to all classes. This change was to prepare for the new functionality, which is that teachers can now not only view any class they are assigned to, but can now "Enter" a class and have their presence in the class recorded and counted towards the ratio for the class. When they leave the class they can "Exit" in a similar fashion. If they "Enter" a second class before "Exiting" the first class, they will be automatically "Exited" from the first class. To see how Entering and Exiting works for the teacher, see Figure 3 - 5.
Third, the Ratios page gives administrators the ability to see a newly created class activity timeline. This timeline, similar to an enrollee activity timeline, shows all teacher "Enters" and "Exits." Administrators can also post notes and photos to the class activity timeline for historical purposes.
Lastly, the Ratios page allows you to close your classes with a click of a button (See Figure 6). Closing a class checks-out every enrollee from the class and causes all teachers who have entered, to exit. This gives you a clean slate for the next class time and saves you or your teachers from having to scour classes in the app to make sure everyone is checked-out and will be able to easily check-in the next time class meets.
