Schools have now moved on from the curriculum changes and the old NC sub-levels. We have worked with hundreds of schools developing in-house models that work for them. We would like to reassure you that we have a simple solution for you.
You just need to decide how many steps or stages you are breaking each year into and what terminology you want to use. A common approach is to assess pupils each year as emerging, developing, secure or deeper. We can develop simple scoring systems to aid you in highlighting attainment and progress and providing all the evidence you need for effective planning. We do not believe in the "tick box" approach to assessment. So a fancy software package that requires hundreds of ticks which then calculates an overall score is not our idea of good assessment. It certainly was not the idea of the Commission that reported on the issue.
If you are interested in one of our Pupil Tracking solutions just let us know. We will be happy to share some common models and will mock up something for you to trial. Just contact us and we will be happy to help.
