Introducing Skill Tracker
A clear, intuitive solution to tracking Approaches to Learning Skills for teachers, students and administrators.
"The ATL skill tracker is a fantastic vehicle for putting students at the centre of their own learning journey. Students reflect on their approaches to learning skills by considering how the work they are producing evidences specific skill development. The tracker is student-friendly, intuitive and brings to life ATL skills from the page of the unit planner to the heart of the classroom."

The Skill Tracker Student App
What it does
Skill Tracker shifts the job of monitoring ATL skills away from teachers and empowers students to track their skills. Students can log evidence of their skill development, tracking their progress across the IB’s five ATL categories. Additionally, all Skills-related data generated by students provides teachers with up to the minute feedback on student skill development as well as curriculum planning and teaching.
In order to maintain student engagement, Skill Tracker also employs many elements of gamification, providing a motivating way to engage with ATL. The app has been built with customisable themes, with new themes and gamification elements to be added over the course of the upcoming school year. There are also in-app awards for the completion of different series of tasks as well as in-app recognition for the use of the app over period of time. This has the purpose of incentivising the students to keep up to date and accurate records, thereby increasing student agency.
Teacher and Admin Portal
Intuitive Setup and Informative Reports
The intuitive Teacher Portal allows teachers and administrators to monitor students’ progress at the individual, class, department and school level. Teachers can easily create multi-purpose reports showing student performance with flexible levels of granularity. A teacher can use these reports to drill down and look at individual student and class performance as well as easily build comparative reports across departments.
The Portal also gives teachers and administrators access to highly informative and actionable data. This student generated data is intuitively organised in Skill Tracker and provides real-time feedback on skill development that handily informs curriculum planning, teaching and assessment. This can help teachers to identify gaps in curriculum, adjust their course planning according to what students might be lacking according to their tracked skills. As a further benefit, this can also be part of an informative discussion in Student/Parent/Teacher conferences.
