Pupil Tracking and Evidence of Learning Software

Schools have trusted the B Squared team for over 20 years. Connecting Steps, our assessment software delivers all the information in a user-friendly format that schools need to improve pupil outcomes, free up teaching time and simplify reporting for senior leaders. Evisense, our evidence of learning platform allows teachers to easily and securely record and share evidence. It can be used with schools’ chosen mobile devices for evidence capture ‘on the go’. 

Our products are designed to reduce teacher workload, not increase it!

Connecting Steps - Show Small Steps of Progress

Connecting Steps simplifies tracking, assessing and reporting progress. It works differently to other assessment software, focusing on continuous assessment to help pupils achieve their full potential. 

Designed from the start to be flexible and easy to use, Connecting Steps saves teachers’ time. Multiple inclusive frameworks allow schools to track the progress of mainstream pupils across early years and primary education. It also covers pupils with SEND from birth to age 25 and includes functional skills, life skills and employability skills.

Connecting Steps is the easiest way to show the progress pupils make, however small!

"B Squared has been an asset in our school development over the last 2 years. It has helped to strengthen our assessment procedures and tighten our planning"

Can't Show Pupil Progress?

When schools come to us looking for help with their assessment, the first question we ask is - what's the problem? The most common response by far... "We are struggling to show progress for our pupils!" 

Many schools know their pupils are making progress, but that progress may be slow and doesn’t show up in their current system. Our Connecting Steps assessment software was developed to address this problem. To show small steps of progress we have created assessment frameworks that break achievements down into smaller steps that lead up to mastering a skill. These steps can be used to build a bigger picture of each pupil’s learning and achievements. Skills gaps and areas for improvement can be identified and worked on to ensure pupils are able to achieve their full potential. These achievements can be quickly and easily demonstrated with photo/video evidence of learning using our evidence management system, Evisense.

SEND Assessment: Life After P-Levels

Following the Rochford Review, the Department for Education (DfE) confirmed that P-Levels would no longer be used for statutory assessment of pupils with SEND. Shortly afterwards we ran a webinar called “Are you Ready for the Removal of P Levels?” It introduces the pre-key stage standards - the new teacher assessment framework for pupils working below the national curriculum assessment standards. The webinar then goes on to address the challenges schools face by its introduction.



Don't Worry - We Can Help

The new pre-key stage standards are too narrow to be used for ongoing assessment! Schools need more that this to show the progress pupils with SEND make, provide next steps and allow them to use an individualised curriculum. Don’t worry we can help! We have introduced a range of assessment frameworks to do just this, supporting schools’ move away from P Levels.
