Subject Allocation and Management System (SAMS) is a windows application developed to help schools to manage and streamline their Secondary 2 Subject Combination processes.
SAMS is very organized. It is more than collecting students’ choices and collating them into an excel file. It actually does the allocation (15 to 20 seconds per cohort)!
SAMS optimizes the process of Allocation based on parameters setting and constraints defined. It is simple to use and can save tremendous amount of time.
It has many functions and procedures customised just to meet your requirement. For example, you can setup each option (Subject Combi) with criteria. Only Students who meet these criteria will be allowed to choose these options.
You can also offer Out-Of-Stream Subject to students who qualify. They will then decide whether to Accept or not during the Selection. If they accept, SCAPS will "upgrade" the subject automatically during allocation.
And when allocating Options to students, it will consider the Group Size, Option Availability, Subject Vacancy, Students' Merit, Qualifications and Choices. All these processes will be completed with seconds.
If you are keen in SAMS, we will be glad to demo the software to you at your school without any obligation. Call us!
Please download SAMS Write-Up for more details.
Please note that SCAPS will remain relevant when schools change to Stream-LESS classes and Syllabus to G1, G2 and G3 format in 2024.
