Benefits for Students
You can't afford to miss out. 
It is time for change today!

  • No work.
      Students don’t need to engage in any schedule negotiation or paperwork, with either parents or their teachers. They need only pass forms to parents. (Not if parents respond online)
  • More parent time.
    • Parents no longer need to set aside a whole night to attend interviews, as their schedules are now shorter. This reduces the time parents are away from their children.
    • Parent schedules are also blocked slightly earlier in the evening unless the event is fully booked, meaning parents are home slightly earlier than under traditional scheduling methods.
  • Better educationally - for many reasons, including:
    • Teacher pre-nomination of interviews. This is not easily done via traditional paper systems, as it requires negotiation with parents for suitable times. EdvalPTN allows teachers to easily express interview preferences with students in need, as this can be done electronically and without any prior contact with, or negotiation with parent schedules.
    • Students who are scheduled under EdvalPTN are granted ‘educational priority’ as opposed to assuming that all interviews are of equal importance. One size does not fit all when it comes to education.
    • Parent interview priority. Unlike traditional systems, parents may express preferences for their interviews, which ensures legitimate parent concerns can be addressed far better than ‘hoping’ specific requested teachers have time in their schedule, or being forced to trade off some teachers for others during less efficient manual time scheduling.
    • Removal of students as interview ‘organisers’ directly addresses key educational concerns. Bright students often schedule many (perhaps less necessary) interviews – which occupies school resources and teachers time. Conversely students in educational need, or who are less organised, or who have concerns about their performance; are far less likely to schedule interviews – despite their far greater need.
    • Powerful reporting encourages schools to follow up parents who have not requested any interviews, or who consistently fail to attend interview nights. This encourages them to be involved in their child’s education, which directly flows through to student performance. Traditional paper based systems do not allow any visibility of these important metrics.
    • Being significantly easier and more cost effective to organise, schools can now consider holding interview events twice a year instead of only once. This provides better contact with parents and ensures any educational concerns of the student are addressed far earlier.
