Previously, we launched two default dashboards: Location and Attendance Dashboard and Pastoral Dashboard. I hope you have had a chance to check them out. If you have not, I encourage you to head to your Orah app, and under Unify, click on reports. To understand more about what you can use the dashboards for, read our support article here.

As we previously mentioned, we intend to build comprehensive reports and dashboards features for you to use. And as part of that goal, we are adding more and more functionalities to the reports feature soon.

Here is the next part of the release. We are deploying two more default dashboards and they are:

  1. Events dashboard

  2. Engagement dashboard

For those who have already read our previous announcement, we hope you are aware of what a dashboard entails. For the folks who have missed it, here are a few things you need to know:

  • A dashboard is made up of a collection of widgets that display your data as charts, graphs, and more. They will help you visualize and compartmentalize your data thus making it easy for you to derive real meaning from them.

  • By default, the dashboard is visible for all student houses and groups within a mixed timeframe.

  • You can filter the dashboards to display data for a house AND a school group. Multiple houses or school groups however cannot be selected.

  • You can choose from a variety of time period options from the Time Frame dropdown.

  1. Events Dashboard

The new events dashboard under Orah's Unify > Reports

Orah’s Activities (Coordinate) offers Events and events passes to enable schools to plan for school-wide events like holiday breaks, or school trips. Through the feature, one can seamlessly communicate with students/parents and get the required information from them (who is interested in the event, permissions, and more).

The Events Dashboard gives you an overview of what kind of events are created, and glean insights about students’ participation and involvement.

Here are more details about each of the widgets that make up the dashboard.

From the admin console, you can define events like school trips or holiday breaks for students/parents to sign up. This widget tells you the number of events that have occurred within the timeframe. By default, it will show the number of events created today.

This widget shows the events that are popular within the chosen time period. i.e. the ones that had more participation from the students.

Over a chosen time period, this widget shows the ratio between students who have opted in for the events and students who have opted out of the events.

Students Attending School Organised Events

This line chart widget shows you a comparison of how many students attended events in the timeframe compared to the same period in the previous year.

2. Engagement Dashboard

In education, student engagement refers to the level of interest students have to learn, do work, take on challenges, participate in school activities, and rejoice in being part of the school community.

Student Engagement: Types and Indicators

To engage students effectively is not an easy feat to accomplish but not impossible. Orah helps you capture data from multiple sources, thus providing you with a single-holistic view of the student. It facilitates easy collaboration and empowers stakeholders to make strategic decisions to improve student engagement. To further support you in understanding your students better, we give you the Engagement Dashboard.

The Engagement Dashboard helps you understand your student’s attendance, participation, and behavior, at a glance. By tracking engagement, you can

  1. Proactively offer help to students who need it

  2. Improve student retention and in turn, improve admissions

  3. Predict student outcomes more accurately
