What is Primary Assessment?
"There are three main forms of primary pupil assessment: in-school formative assessment, which is used by teachers to evaluate pupils’ knowledge and understanding on a day-today basis and to tailor teaching accordingly; in-school summative assessment, which enables schools to evaluate how much a pupil has learned at the end of a teaching period; and nationally standardised summative assessment, which is used by the Government to hold schools to account."
Department for Education Final report of the Commission on Assessment without Levels September 2015.
Why we created the Primary Assessment Pupil Tracker?
Educater supports teachers in the classroom monitor the progress of their pupils with its primary school pupil Assessment Tracker. The school assessment was developed following changing Government policy and the announcement that national curriculum levels would be removed and not replaced, Sheffield school leaders, the Sheffield local authority and education practitioners teamed together to devise a new system for primary pupil assessment. The result of this was the School Tracking and Assessment Tools system (STAT).
It was believed that by using a common approach, a culture could be created that would help to develop: collaborative professional development, data sharing, moderation of children’s work, consistency in primary school teacher assessment and the management of transitions between schools for children or staff.
IT helps to manage assessment in primary schools
Educater’s Assessment Tracker is the only online school pupil assessment tracking software specifically designed to manage the STAT Sheffield curriculum. We understand that every pupil’s progress is individual and unique and this assessment tracker enables primary school teachers to track pupil assessment quickly and has a direct impact on the way they plan children’s learning in Key Stages 1 and 2 and the early years’ foundation stage (EYFS).
Educater also has the capability of incorporating any primary assessment framework into our pupil tracking system and has partnerships with other leading content providers including NAHT and Rising Stars Progression Frameworks alongside STAT Sheffield.
