Web-based Architecture
P.E.T. Learning Styles Solution is a Web-based student learning style assessment and data management system that resides on a centralized server and is accessed by the student, teacher, or administrator through an Internet or intranet connection. The end user's computer can be a Mac or a PC and need only a Web browser to access the P.E.T. Learning Styles Solution application. With a Web browser interface P.E.T. Learning Styles Solution is easy to use for everyone.

As a Web-based, centralized application, P.E.T. Learning Styles Solution delivers real-time student learning styles information and strategies to teachers and students. Students complete the learning style assessment and immediately receive a profile providing them with information vital to the comprehension of their own unique style. The teacher has access to the student information and accompanying strategies for working with this student. All this information is available directly from the centralized database, and once the students have all worked with the P.E.T. Learning Styles Solution application, the teacher can view her class individually or as a group. Students may retake the assessment each year allowing administrators, teachers, and student's access to the most up-to-date information available.

Selecting a Web-based student learning style data management system is a fiscally responsible choice for schools and districts for several reasons:

  • It is easy to install, maintain, and upgrade.
  • It reduces hardware and software costs.
  • It reduces training costs.

Centralized to Save Costs
With the P.E.T. Learning Styles Solution system Web-based architecture, the database is centrally located on Vital Knowledge's secure server or in rare cases on the district server. This means there is only one data source. No servers are required at any school sites. As a result, there is no need to synchronize multiple servers or to have district or school IT support staff involved. This saves districts thousands of dollars on hardware and IT costs because the centralizing of database maintenance takes place on Vital Knowledge's secure server. Most importantly the administrators have immediate access to the most current comprehensive data. With a non-centralized student learning style data management system it can take hours, days, or even weeks to update the central database, and often involves IT support staff. This means you could be making your administrative decisions based on obsolete student data.

Real-Time Data
Data-driven decision-making is now possible with real-time data accessible through P.E.T. Learning Styles Solution. With a centralized database, as soon as any information is added or changed it is available to the student, teacher or administrator. This means that an administrator can add teachers, that teachers can add students, view a student list and generate reports as soon as each student records their learning style. It is also immediately available to students and their parents via the Internet through a password protected secure entry system. Administrators, teachers, and students do not have to wait for the latest download or upload to know that they have the most current data on their learning style.

Comprehensive Features
P.E.T. Learning Styles Solution offers a comprehensive feature set in a single application. With other student learning style data management systems additional features and capabilities, such as teacher access, an integrated student list or student report generation might require the purchase of additional modules. Not only does this increase cost but also the complexity of the system. And as a company that specializes in working for educators we realize the importance of designing a tool that is straight forward, and easy to use. With P.E.T. Learning Styles Solution, there is no need to jump between modules in order to add a teacher or student, or print a student learning style report. The P.E.T. Learning Styles Solution Web-based architecture allows for all functions to be available at one time by navigating as you would within any Web site using a Web browser. The information is available to those with a need to know - at all times and from any location.

Platform Independent
P.E.T. Learning Styles Solution provides choice and flexibility to schools by maintaining platform independence. The end user can use any computer with a standard Web browser* to access P.E.T. Learning Styles Solution, saving the district thousands of dollars on hardware and maintenance costs. Additionally, P.E.T. Learning Styles Solution is supported on a variety of server platforms that support Microsoft Internet Explorer or the Netscape Web browser.

School or District Scalable
Whether your district is large or small, the P.E.T. Learning Styles Solution data management system's unique architecture allows for different implementations to meet the needs of any school or district.
