End of term pupil reporting can take an excessive amount of teacher time to collate and prepare, but the data and information produced is essential to inform about pupil progress and identify the next steps in learning. How do you ensure that your reports are accurate and inform next steps in the most efficient way?
One of our customers is a Special Educational Needs (SEN) school where many members of staff work with each pupil across different subject areas. They were using a basic document system to create pupil reports, but because each teacher needed to contribute to every report this meant that only one person could add information at any one time.
With InfoMentor, teachers are able to input comments to an automatically generated report at the same time, if they need to. The school have found that they spent significantly less time preparing reports which are then easily shared with parents.
How does it work?
Having transparent and accurate visibility of pupil progress is essential for school leaders so that you can monitor school performance. InfoMentor’s analytical tools show both pupil progress and the effectiveness of your school’s teaching by comparing the performance of year groups, classes and cohorts. End of term, summative judgements can be made using our curriculum grid summary tool, which is automatically populated from the formative assessments that have taken place at the point of learning.
We believe that teacher professional judgements are the most accurate measure of attainment and progress, so have designed a solution that supports this rather than one that automatically predicts pupil outcomes. In order to make decisions about a pupils achievements when making a summative judgement, our curriculum grid summary tool will help your school to quickly get an overview of the formative assessments that have been collected.
InfoMentor’s accurate reporting means that you can clearly see where pupils are in their learning through our group overview tool. Groups of pupils in different subjects can be analysed, or the data can be ‘drilled’ into to provide a view of an individual pupil’s achievement in each subject.
The assessment template tool shows pupil progress over time and end of term reports can be created with our grade reporting tool.
