Vizs scale from a single student to an entire school. With their intuitive design, everyone from students, teachers, parents and senior leadership can work from the same page simply and effectively.
Markbook as a term doesn't quite cover Vizi's intelligent markbook. Capable of taking any result types including grades, marks, comments and states, our markbook can be used to capture anything from exam results, half term grades, primary skills progression, homeworks and more. It has even been used to record long jump distances!
Time saving features such as quick fill and auto grade (grading work based on grade boundaries) take away some of the hassle of entering marks. Assessments can easily be reused with a click, including ones from other teachers in your school or even from the Vizi market.
Our markbook comes loaded with hundreds of colour presets, allowing you to hotspot areas requiring improvement or instantly seeing how students are doing compared to target. Colours are fully customisable and almost infinitely flexible.
Writing reports can be time consuming. Let Vizi do the number crunching and data analysis to instantly give you written reports that assess student attainment and progress. Individual comments can be reworded with a click and you can add your own words as you see fit.
At Vizi we believe information can be communicated effectively with visuals and that holds true for our reports too. Every comment that Vizi generates has a graph to support its findings that can be viewed on creation, or inserted into the report for parents and viewers.
Check the readability of your report with our handy readability scale and when you're happy, go straight to print. Reports can be printed to a variety of templates, with charts included if desired.
Homework can be set, tracked and submitted using Vizi's student and parent portals. Everyone can have full visibility of work set, expectations for submission and resources provided, as well as keeping track of homework on the calendar.
Resources can be attached to work to allow students to complete their homework. These could include pdfs, powerpoints, videos and more. Resources can be set so they are visible to everyone, teachers only (mark schemes for example) or even to just parents and teachers, to provide resources for parents to assist their children with the work.
Results and feedback can be published at the teacher's discretion. Published information appears on the student and parents timeline, as well as remaining in their assessment log. You can even publish separate feedback comments to students and parents, if desired.
Breakdowns are an extremely flexible way of recording much more detailed results for an assessment. This could be anything from question by question results on a mock exam, to a monthly assessment of how your primary students are progressing vs. their skill objectives.
Breakdowns allow you to capture as much or as little information as you wish. For example, an exam question could record the topic, type of question, and the skills required. Primary objectives can contain the levels that are required by the National Curriculum or anything additional you wish to add. All of this detail goes straight to the breakdown Viz, providing an unparalleled deep dive snapshot.
It's easy to make breakdowns using our breakdown editor. However, you can always search the Vizi market for existing breakdowns, including exam breakdowns and National Curriculum objective breakdowns, formatted for primary.
Our interactive quizzes allow you to set your own quizzes to students. These can range from single choice, multiple choice, spelling tests and more. Quizzes can be automatically marked by Vizi, with marks filtering straight through to the markbook and your Vizs.
Set instant feedback quizzes to engage students and optimise learning. Quizzes can allow students to keep attempting questions until they get it right, or to a fixed number of attempts you set. View quiz Vizs to see what questions took the most attempts and which ones students got right first time.
Pushed for time? Go on the Vizi Market to find quizzes that other teachers have made and set them to your students with a click. Set a quiz that is automatically marked, inserted into the markbook and automatically graded. Neat.
Vizi's seating planner makes creating seating plans a breeze. Simply drag and drop students and save multiple plans per class. Any information you have on the students can be added to their card, Gender, SEN requirements, a specific assessment score... anything you have!
Use the automatic seating wizard to seat your students by any information you have, group high ability students or disperse genders with a flexible slider system and a single click.
Put the seating chart into incognito mode to hide student details other than names/images and show your class. Use the random student picker for spot questions, to scroll through the students until landing on the answerer!
All data that goes into Vizi is crunched by our smart alerts system. This looks for patterns of interest in the data, slumps in performance, consecutive lates, or even top of class alerts. The alerts do a lot of analysis for you and can throw up findings that may otherwise have gone unnoticed, but require action.
As well as performance alerts of who is the most consistent or which student has recently plummetted in attainment, alerts also provide reminders of work that is due and can carry school wide messages to all staff.
All alerts are customisable. Specific rules and sensitivities can be set up for students or groups. Have a student you are concerned about? Set sensitive, high priority alerts for them so that you are kept informed as you, and other teachers, enter data for them.
Vizi allows you to record any user information you want, gender, pupil premium, ability, language... anything! Detailed SEN requirements can be recorded and SEN flags turned on so wherever that student is seen in Vizi, their requirement is visible.
Our flags allow you to record personalised lesson plans for SEN students or any other notes, such as ability profiles for very able students. By clicking on these flags next to the student names, details can be accessed instantly.
Any student information you capture can be added to your Viz. Compare students with pupil premium, EAL, SEN, gender or whatever you wish by simply adding a chart and clicking on the desired bar.
Smart charts provide an alternative to your Viz. Several different charts are available that use pictures/names of your students directly on the chart, making it a great tool for spotting an individuals performance relative to their peers.
Students can be placed by attainment, ranked by progress, sorted by performance against targets and displayed by other characteristics such as Gender, SEN requirements etc.
The matrix view allows you to compare two different assessments/subjects/topics performance. This can be great for visualising progress from one month to the next in Primary for example, or improvements in mock exams. Anonymous mode allows you to show parents and students where they lie by blanking out all other cards other than their own.
Our notes system is accessible anywhere you can see a students name. Clicking on the notes allows you to write a note on that student, or edit previous notes.
Notes can be shared with other teachers and groups. This can be useful for sharing information about a student and keeping all staff on the same page.
Colour code your notes to keep track of different information points about your students!
Vizi's Market allows you to search for assessments, breakdowns and quizzes that other teachers have made and uploaded. Browse the market by topic, subject, year group and examining body to find relevant material to set your students.
Access the Market straight from your markbook to quickly set quizzes to your students and let Vizi automatically mark and grade them for you!
Vizi integrates seamlessly with 17 Major MIS systems. Any changes to students, groups and timetables are pulled through automatically, meaning there is no admin overhead in Vizi to manage.
Tailor what user information you want Vizi to pull through from your MIS. Vizi will pull through as much as you want it to, allowing you to add user fields such as EAL, FSM, Pupil Premium, Gender and SEN requirements to your Viz.
Vizi can also pull through historic exam results, half term grades and current targets. It will even create a Viz for all historic results for you, allowing you to see your data in a way you never have before!
Vizi's calcluations are kept up to date with the latest data points and can be used to calculate Attainment 8, Progress 8 and KS2 fine level.
Vizi's live calculations can dynamically calculate Attainment 8 and Progress 8 scores throughout the school year, allowing you to check whether you are on track with your targets.
Add widgets to your home page to check at a glance if your school is above the floor standard with your latest dynamic Attainment 8/Progress 8 values.
Vizi has handy widgets on all its group and user pages. These include to do lists, calendars, timetables, upcoming assessments, due assessments and performance indicators.
See at a glance how your students are doing vs. their targets/expectations. Our widgets can show you who is performing above, equal or below their level for any target or metric you wish to measure.
Instant progress indications show you how your students are getting on over time. In the background Vizi applies statistical analysis to show you who is trending strongly upwards, downwards, or holding steady.
