Here are the tools that you can view and use on your dashboard:

School Activity
At the top of your teacher dashboard is a table that provides you with a quick snapshot of your school’s activity by subject and grade.
You’ll see the following information:

Number of learners for each grade and subject
The percentage of learners who’ve been active for the current day
The percentage of learners who’ve done more than five questions in the last seven days
The percentage of learners who’ve done more than 25 questions in the last 30 days
The average number of questions done by learners for the year
Download reports that show your school’s activity per subject and grade
A list of all learners linked to your school


When learners sign up to Siyavula they’re asked to enter their current grade. If they don’t update this each year, their account will reflect the grade they’d originally chosen.
This table reflects the grade that learners have selected, and thus may not reflect the current number of learners in each grade.
To be accurate, ask your learners to update their details in My Account.

Reports
The Siyavula reports give teachers immediate, detailed information on how their learners are practising, and how they’ve done in a set assignment. The reports can be viewed online on the Siyavula website, and downloaded as Excel spreadsheets.

The reports are as follows:
Class practice reports - providing detailed information on the practice statistics for a class
Learner practice reports - the detailed practice information for each learner
Class assignment reports - providing detailed information on assignment results for a class
Learner assignment reports - the detailed assignment results for each learner

These reports provide teachers with valuable information that includes mastery levels for practice reports, and results by question and section, for assignment reports.

Where to find the reports:
You can navigate to all the different reports from your Teacher Home Page, by clicking on the Teacher Dashboard icon. This will take you to your teacher dashboard, which provides an overview of all the classes you’re linked to.


In addition to this, you can also find the assignment reports if you click on the Learner Assignments icon.
Once you’ve clicked on the teacher dashboard icon, you will see a list of all the classes you’re linked to. You can find all the reports by clicking on:

Summary reports - for class and learner practice reports
Assignment reports - for class and learner reports on any assignments done


Tools
Classes
Below the school activity table is a list of all the classes you’re linked to, either as a teacher or because you’ve to see all the classes in a grade or department. The name of the class is followed by the number of learners who are linked to the class.


If no learners are yet linked to the class, you’ll see an orange No learners sticker next to the class name.
Under each class are a number of useful links so you can find everything to do with that class in one place.
This includes:

Summary Reports: these reports are a snapshot view of class activity for the year, giving you information about the class as a whole, and for each learner.
Assignment Reports: if you’ve set assignments for your learners, all the assignment reports for the class can be found by following the Assignment Reports link.
Leaderboards: by following this link, you can create a leaderboard for your class.
Practice Dashboard: your Practice Dashboard allows you to filter information such as your learners’ level of mastery, the number of exercises done, and the speed at which they are working.

There are three further links under each class, namely:

Overview: this gives an overview of the teachers and learners who are linked to the class
Access Codes: the access code/s for the class
Settings: this allows you to change the name and number of learners in your class


If you’re wanting a quick view of class activity, choose to see Summary Reports, but if you’d like a more detailed view where you’re able to select the content and dates you want to see, select Practice Dashboard.
Overview link
If you click on Overview under the class name, you’ll not only have access to useful information about your learners, but you’ll also be able to:

Link and unlink learners to and from your class
Transfer learners to other classes in the school
Reset learners’ passwords

You will also be able to access the profile information of any teacher linked to the class.

Accessing Teacher information:

In the Overview section, you’ll see which teachers are linked to the class, either as a primary or supporting teacher. The primary teacher is the teacher or teachers responsible for teaching that class, whereas a supporting teacher may be the HOD or Grade Head.

You may want all the teachers teaching a grade to have access to all the classes. This will make it very easy - and a great way to save time - for one teacher to send the same assignment to every class in the grade.
We give all teachers and learners a Siyavula ID, which is a unique alpha-numeric identifier. This Siyavula ID can be used as an alternative to the learner or teacher’s username (the username is an email address or mobile number). For privacy reasons, you will not have full access to this information.
Next to each teacher’s name will be their Siyavula ID, their status (as a primary or supporting teacher), and a link to the teacher profile.

If you click on the Teacher Profile, you can see the following information about the teacher:

Account information, including their Siyavula ID
All the classes taught by that teacher (and any classes the teacher may have joined)
Details of the content the teacher is able to access
Account history (when the teacher account was created, and when last the teacher logged in)
Question history of any questions the teacher completed

Accessing Learner information:

In the Overview section under Learners, you’ll see which learners are linked to the class. Next to each learner’s name is their Siyavula ID and a link to their profile. If you click on the Learner Profile, you can see the following information about the learner:

Account information, including their Siyavula ID
All the classes that the learner has joined
Details of the content the learner is able to access
Account history (when the learner account was created, updated their grade, and last logged in)
Question history of any questions the learner has completed

Apart from the information you can see, you can also:

Link learners to your class
Unlink learners from your class
Update learners’ passwords
Transfer a learner to another class in your school

The buttons for these actions can be found in the grey box above your learners’ names.

Access codes
Access codes are used to link learners to their correct classes. Once learners have signed up or logged in to Siyavula, they would use an access code to link themselves to their Mathematics or Physical Sciences class.

Where to find your access code:

If you click on the Access Codes link under each class, you’ll see the access code for that class. This code should be given to your learners:
When they sign up for the first time, or
When they log in again at the beginning of a new year (for learners who already have a Siyavula account)


Inserting the access code, which is a four-word code, gives your learners access to the program, and links them to the correct class.
How to type in an access code:

If a learner has an account but has not redeemed an access code, they can do the following:
Go to Menu
Click on Access Code
Click on Redeem Access Code

When learners click on the Access Code link, they will be asked to enter the access code that will link them to their correct class.

You can check whether your learners have entered their access codes. If they haven’t their names won’t appear on your teacher dashboard. To check, go to your teacher dashboard, click on OVERVIEW, and scroll down to the list of learners. If a learner’s name does not appear here, it means they haven’t put in their access code.
Settings
The Settings link allows you to:

Change the name of your class
Update the number of learners in the class
Change the grade of the class

Simply make the changes you’d like to, and click Save changes

Registered learners at your school
All learners who have signed up on Siyavula and selected a particular grade and school on their profile automatically be linked to a corresponding class under the heading Registered learners at your school. To see the list of learners and a summary of their activity and performance for a class, select the Summary Report.

Summary reports
The summary report consists of four sections showing the overall practice effort and mastery for the class, as well as the individual students. This information can be downloaded as an Excel file by clicking the download link.

Class summary: The class summary report shows a list of all the learners in the grade, along with their average mastery and total number of practice and exam prep questions completed to date.
The mastery is the overall mastery of a student for the entire year’s curriculum and can be considered their expected performance if they had to write the final exam at this moment.

Class summary per chapter and section: This report shows the average effort and performance of the class as a whole on the chapters and sections in the curriculum.
By clicking on a chapter, the information for the individual sections can be revealed.

Mastery and Question per chapter: To quickly see the effort or mastery of the individual learners in the class for a specific chapter, click on the chapter you want to filter by.

Leaderboards
To generate a leaderboard for any of the combined grade classes, select the leaderboard link for that class.

A leaderboard will be generated with the option to rank by exercises or atoms, and the ability to change the time period.
