Teacher Analysis

A reminder about class visibility and features in Little SIS

Little SIS provides many powerful ways to explore the Google Classroom classes on your domain, but what you can see and do very much depends on what kind of user you are within Little SIS.

Super administrators can view ALL of the Google Classroom classes on a G Suite domain and have unlimited access to features within Little SIS. Learn about features specific to super admins.

Users who are not super admins can be granted access to a limited set of classes within Little SIS. Depending on your role, you may also have only a limited set of features available to you. Learn more about permissions.

Little SIS keeps a live copy of data related to all classes (and their metadata like assignments, announcements, etc.) on your domain and makes these available for exploration and bulk actions via the Classroom Explorer.

Overview

The Teacher Analysis Report is your per teacher workload report. It includes a row per teacher with TOTALS of classes meeting a variety of criteria:

  • The total number of classes, broken down by ACTIVE, ARCHIVED, PROVISIONED, and DECLINED states
  • Classes that have the guardian notification feature enabled
  • Classes that have co-teachers
  • Classes that they are a co-teacher in
  • Classes with very few students
  • Total assignment count
  • Total announcement count
  • Count of classes requiring metadata refresh
