Create comprehensive student & teacher profile to provide valuable feedback:

M-Star captures information about an individual in a holistic manner, i.e. physical, psychological & social parameters. The process of recording this information starts at the beginning of the life cycle of the student in the school, i.e. admission, when the teacher joins the institution or the time of recruitment. To name a few parameters –

  • Student – Academic performance, interests, participation, health information, etc
  • Staff – Performance, discipline, health, etc
  • These profiles empower the institution to understand student / teacher needs better and thereby take necessary action. Parents also benefit from this immensely.
