We are currently developing a framework to assess pupil progress within the Curriculum for Excellence. The content is being developed in collaboration with schools in North Lanarkshire. Experienced professionals within the development team are putting together new frameworks covering the significant aspects of learning, across the following stages:
- Developmental (including SEN)
Our new Developmental stage is designed to support children with more complex needs, building on our wealth of experience within the SEN sector. The Third and Fourth stages will be developed at a future date. The Curriculum for Excellence will be available as part of our Connecting Steps assessment software.
In Scotland it is important for schools to record Outcomes as well as Experiences. Schools will be able to use Connecting Steps to track Outcomes and our new evidence software, Evisense, to record Experiences. Evisense has been designed to make capture of evidence as easy as possible for teaching staff – progress can be recorded via videos, photos or documents and are stored on our secure cloud servers. Using our assessment and evidence products, teachers can link the evidence to both the Experiences and the Outcomes.
