Physical or emotional bullying, on site or virtual harassment is one of the distress signals that may indicate the danger of students dropping out. Identification of this signal is not always easy as actions rarely take place in class or in the presence of teachers, adults. Therefore this tool is aiming at getting information from students.
Absenteeism is one of the distress signals that indicates that students are at risk and are potential drop outs. The tool helps to register the number of classes missed by individual students and to select the students with most missed classes on school level.
It is a way to observe, follow and identify distress signals connected to behaviour as soon as possible.
