  • Reporting Module

    Hello, friend! Welcome to Gibbon! The Reports module can be a bit daunting at first, but not to worry - we have a section in our documentation all about it.

    Take a look at this and see if it helps out!

  • What is,the difference between courses, class, period and unit.

    Hi, Crest! As you've gathered, these are all connected and layered concepts within Gibbon.

    Courses are not quite the same thing as subjects: they are a crossover between a department and a year group. For example, in an English department, you might have courses for Year 7 English, Year 8 English, and Year 9 English. Courses act as an umbrella under which classes and units are kept.

    Classes are the next step down from courses: they serve as a structure to show which group of students will be learning that course, which teachers will be teaching them, and what times they will be taught. Once a class is set up, you can start creating lesson plans.

    Units belong to courses and can be then be used by the classes in that same course. They contain information on material that will be taught to students, and can be assigned to a class when making a lesson plan.

    Periods are defined by the timetable: they are the time slots during the day when lessons will happen. You can use Timetable Admin to put classes in periods once they are created to make them appear on the timetable.

    I hope this helps!
