Curriculum for Excellence - Evaluate Progress Across the Scottish Curriculum the Easy Way - B Squared Products for Scotland

Towards the end of December last year we ran a webinar introducing schools in Scotland to our new assessment products we have been creating in partnership with schools in North Lanarkshire.

Over the last few years we have been developing our Steps to Excellence assessment framework to give teachers the ability to track the small steps of progress pupils with ASN make. Steps to Excellence covers from the Pre-Early Milestones through to Fourth level across the 8 areas of the Curriculum for Excellence.

Steps to Excellence is an assessment framework which sits with Connecting Steps, our assessment software. Connecting Steps is used in over 1000 schools in the UK, helping schools by supporting their robust assessment judgements and report on curriculum level achievement. Reinforced by a range of powerful reporting tools, this framework enables schools to represent detailed progress and achievement information to pupils, parents, staff, governors, local authorities and Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Education (HMIE).

 

"Connecting Steps is a fantastic resource for recording, tracking, monitoring and evaluating progress across the entire school community. It enables us to easily measure the effectiveness of our teaching and programmes of work - and clearly target next steps."

John Hamilton, Headteacher, James Reid School, North Ayrshire

 

Schools in Scotland are also using our evidence for learning platform, Evisense alongside Connecting Steps to record and highlight the achievements of pupils. Evisense creates a portfolio of a child's educational journey through the CfE. The portfolio can be shared easily with parents either through the app or using printed reports.

This webinar gives schools an overview of how Connecting Steps and Evisense work together and how they support best practice. If you have any questions about our products or would like to know more, you can either send an email to myself – dale@bsquared.co.uk or you can arrange an online meeting where we can show you the software and answer any questions you may have.

Life Without Levels - Four Years On

Alex Hurle 0 2367

The levels are dead…

In 2014, we were told that the National Curriculum level descriptors were bad. Possibly because teacher assessment was not as ‘accurate’ as testing. Possibly because the old level descriptor content didn’t match Gove’s new National Curriculum attainment targets. Possibly because a best-fit approach to assessment left ‘gaps’ in children’s learning. Possibly because parents and children didn’t...

Yes, yet another blog about GDPR

Jon Twycross 0 1440

It seems that the whole country has gone GDPR crazy. It was the dominating topic at BETT at the beginning of the year with new companies popping up to help schools comply with what is a complex and sometimes “open to interpretation” document. Let’s face it though, it is not the first-time schools have had to muddle their way through a document that can be read in different ways.
