Ways Scoir Solves Data Management Challenges for School Counselors

Ways Scoir Solves Data Management Challenges for School Counselors

Odds are, as a school counselor, you’re faced with hundreds of daily tasks.

From emails, to reporting, to phone calls, to meetings, to FAFSA mayhem, to random tasks on sticky notes all around your office…on top of being responsible for improving the success of hundreds of students at any given time…it’s no wonder you might be burnt out.

A key way to help reduce the noise? Data management built for counselors.

Having a single place where counselors can store student data and complete high school and district reporting reduces context-switching and simplifies keeping track of all the things.

We make it easy to store student data (on an individual and aggregate level) and evaluate key points in the student journey so you can spend more time driving student success.

Read on to discover how Scoir supports data management for counselors with the following:

  1. Student Roster 
  2. Custom Properties
  3. Surveys
  4. Assignments
  5. Student Profiles
  6. Scattergrams
  7. Reports

Stick around at the end for some bonus Scoir tools to explore!

 

1. Student Roster

We make managing student rosters easy. When your high school begins using Scoir, we’ll help you import all your student data so that we can become your single source of truth.

New Counselor Experience Student Roster

Or, you can easily roster your students in Scoir from your Student Information System through a Clever or ClassLink SIS/SSO Integration. Then, use Scoir to track student progress, deliver college and career readiness curriculum, drive post-high school planning, manage college applications, communicate with students and families, create reports, and more. 

 

2. Custom Properties

Make Scoir your own with Custom Properties. Keep track of information unique to your student body, and organize your Custom Properties into Groups so you can stay organized.

3. Surveys

Standardize your process to gather feedback and information from students and parents/guardians with Surveys. Share brag sheets, college readiness, and career readiness surveys (and much more) right in Scoir so all that actionable data is in one place.

Students receive push notifications and emails about new surveys so they know to take action quickly. 

Once you’re ready to evaluate the survey responses, you can bulk export all student responses to a CSV or even print individual student responses.

 

4. Assignments

With (likely!) hundreds of students in your caseload, keeping tabs on each student's college and career readiness progress can be challenging. That's why we created Assignments!

Here, you can bulk assign tasks to your students, and even bulk send reminders to give them a nudge. You can assign students anything you'd like, from requesting they add 3 colleges to their My Colleges list, asking for a letter of recommendation, or adding recent achievements and accomplishments to their Scoir profile.

 

5. Student Profiles

Students can record their activities and achievements right in Scoir. This makes it easy for counselors to remember what their students have been up to (plus, it serves as a great start to building a resume!).

Students can also add a bio to their Scoir profile for easy counselor reference.

6. Scattergrams

Scattergrams are a powerful tool to guide your conversations with students about college list building. Gain insight into a student’s likelihood of acceptance to the colleges they’re following based on historical data of other students who attended your high school.

7. Reports

Report on key data for your individual high school or your entire district in Scoir!

Scoir connects all the schools in your district or network via 1 dashboard so you’re equipped with key insights related to student performance, college planning, application statuses, and more.

Choose from 7 Standard Reports and get a glimpse into student progress, trends, and outcomes, from Scholarships and Awards, to Standardized Tests, to College Visits. You can also add filters like class years, assigned counselors, and groups.

2. My Drive

Gone are the days of “When did you send that email?” and “I can’t find that document!” 

Each student in Scoir has a My Drive, where counselors, students, and their families can store important documents. Collaborate on college essays, course planning, career readiness, scholarship opportunities, and more!

 

3. Communication Center

Consolidate your communication channels by emailing and direct messaging students and parents/guardians right in Scoir. Connect your email address to Scoir so you can email using your work email address. 

You can also utilize the Scoir Library, a collection of professionally written emails designed to engage students throughout the college readiness process. We’ve done the hard work for you and written emails for each season of the college admissions experience!

 

4. Calendar Management

Set college rep visit availability, schedule college visits (with over 1,650 institutions), and offer office hours to your students, all in Scoir.
