You know your students and context the best, so the SRES lets you decide what data about your students is important, and then helps you bring these data together so you can act on it.
Everyone’s learning and teaching context is different. The SRES can be customised to work in yours.
Whether you have 20 or 2000 students, create and send fully personalised and targeted emails and messages to your students, or build a web portal so they can receive personalised feedback and support.
Teaching teams can enter and see data about their students when and where they need to. The SRES saves data securely to the ‘cloud’, so say goodbye to scraps of paper.
When I tried the SRES for the first time, I was blown away by the immediate reaction from my students. Both the poor performers and the outstanding ones were really pleased to have been singled out and either offered help or praised for their efforts. This is motivating for both ends of the spectrum.
The SRES is a time-efficient and appropriate way to give feedback to students, particularly large cohorts. Thanks very much; this is a terrific initiative!
The SRES has allowed me to create a personalised learning environment whereby my students receive feedback quickly and easily. With the SRES we have had a reduction in absent fails from approximately 10 a year to none. Students have also commented in their student evaluations that the personalised emails helped make them feel like their work was valued and helped them stay on track. The system is easy to use and has saved me hours of work.
I’ve found the SRES to be a useful motivational tool… I was surprised and gratified by how much students valued our encouragement and recognition… It shows how helpful the SRES is in allowing us to give the kind of personalised attention to students that time wouldn’t otherwise allow.
Our coordinators are strongly encouraging their tutors to use the system and some of the least technically inclined tutors are saying it is quick and easy to use. We are gradually moving from using the system to record student attendance in classes and exams, to recording marks in class (often using rubrics), including oral exams (OSCEs). The general consensus is that staff are initially cautious when using the SRES, but move quickly to endorsing the system.
