    16. 16. For EVERY learning task, teachers must include the relevant VELS indicators for the activity. Once students have completed the task, teachers then need to assign a score/rating against the VELS indicators. This data becomes part of the ‘Progress’ graph on the students Profile Page – visible to both parents and students.<br />
    17. 17. Monitoring allows teachers to see what tasks their students have completed, which tasks are most popular and to create graphs of completed/in progress/not commenced tasks.<br />
    18. 18. Observations is where teachers comment on the work the students have completed. They can make their comments visible to students and parents or choose to keep them private<br />
