Highlights of Digital Assessment
Enriched communication and feedback
Whether it’s using online forums for the entire class or small groups for class discussions, online forums encourage students to communicate. Not all students are comfortable speaking up in class, and online forums can give shy students a platform to express themselves without the added pressure of speaking in front of the entire class.
Advanced annotation tools
Marking your students work has never been so simple, through Digital Assessment there are multiple ways to annotate documents including:
Pen tool, Comment tool, Voice note tool, Text tool, Grading tool and Portfolio.
"The importance of technology in education is really so our children can access the best tools and materials in the here and now."
"Our children can very independently decide on how they want to present their learning.. Also allows us to do things that previously wasn't possible."

By adopting Showbie, and moving to a digital assessment environment, schools can save time, money and paper. Furthermore, Showbie helps teachers to simplify the entire end-to-end process of workflow management between teachers and students (from assignment of work, through to marking and assessment, and providing students with feedback).

At GBM, we understand that schools are multi-platform, and that each school has it’s own individual ways of working. That’s why we work with schools to consult on their technology environments, taking in to account the way teachers and students work, and the types of technology that are used in the school. As part of this work, we will ensure that the asessment tools and workflows provided are compatible with your exisiting technologies, as well as working with you to create a sustainable technology plan for the future.
When adopting new technologies in to your school, we know that creating the right professional development strategy for your staff is key. Our fully-qualified teachers will work with your staff to build new workflows for assessment, and train your staff on how to use the assessment tools provided. Through professional development we can support teachers in their use of Showbie, giving them the confidence to utilise the tools available to them.
