One of the coolest features of Orah Notes is its ability to summarise all recorded notes about a students behaviour and create an accurate report for teachers to use in their end-of-term reports, duty reports or otherwise.
The Orah Report Writer references all the Orah Notes logged against a student within a specified time-frame, and generates an accurate report.
You can also filter records by your chosen categories – i.e. if you have recorded 'Academic' notes for a student, and you want to see a summary of their academic progress, you can choose to only reference those notes.
This save teachers HOURS of time each term when writing reports, and allows for a healthier distribution of work throughout the school term.
All reports are editable in Orah, or you can copy + paste into your desired format for further editing.
If you want to specify what type of report you want Orah Report Writer to generate, you can adjust the prompt to your specifications in the report writer.
