how to use Mangostin to record NAPFA results

Saint Anthony's Primary (SAPS) and Ai Tong Primary (ATS) schools used Mangostin to run the Primary 6 NAPFA tests.

The key considerations in organizing the NAPFA tests:

  • Who are the testers ? Teachers vs. students
  • How to efficiently identify students ?
  • How to organize test sessions? One session per class vs. several classes per session

Why Mangostin for NAPFA

  • Record digitally the students results of the 6 stations
  • Time the 1.6/2.4k run
  • Track live the whole class activity completion
  • Export automatically all the results into the NAPFA central system (cockpit) format

Testers (teachers or students) only need a handphone, tablet or laptop.

Set up for the 1.6k Run

In both cases, students are required to run several laps for the 1.6k.

ATS - teacher-led

1 block per class. Each class is split in 2 waves.

Students wear a bib with their index numbers.

  • one teacher calls the bib numbers
  • one teacher taps the bib numbers in Mangostin app using the school laptop.
  • one teacher anounces the number of lap left for the students using the Mangostin on the handphone

SAPS - student-led

1 block per class. Each class is split in 2 waves.

Students are paired up:

  • one runs,
  • the buddy records and announces the lap times using the Mangostin app on a school tablet.
  • Then they switch.

Set up for the 5 others NAPFA stations

ATS - 1 session per class

  • 1 session per class
  • Up to 10 teachers as testers deployed over the 5 stations.
  • Teachers record students scores with the Mangostin app on their handphones.

SAPS - 1 session for all P6 classes

  • A 2-hour block for the six P6 classes
  • Four teachers per station. Teachers record students scores with the Mangostin app on their handphones.
  • Students are split in group of 5 and are able to freely roam between the 5 stations.
