B Squared Assessment Products

Early Years

Our assessment products and evidence of learning products are an ideal partnership for early years settings. Our assessment framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) covers from Birth to the exceeded early learning goal across the 17 areas.

Evisense, our evidence of learning product allows early years settings to record and share their observations, photographs or videos. A secure platform with a social media style interface makes it easy for staff and parents to use.

Primary

Our assessment products for primary schools allow teachers to track pupils against age related expectations. Our assessment frameworks can also be used with pupils working below age related expectations to show the progress they are making and identify areas where support or intervention is needed. Our analysis module for Connecting Steps (CSAM) is designed to bring together whole school data in an easy to use format that can be shared with the different stakeholders.

Secondary

Our assessment products for secondary schools are designed to track pupil progress towards the new 1 - 9 GCSEs. Our assessment framework that was developed in partnership with schools in Leeds covers 25 GCSE subjects starting at year 7 through to Year 11.

SEND

Our assessment products have been used with pupils with SEND for over 20 years. We are always keeping up with the latest changes and our new frameworks, Engagement Steps, Progression Steps and Primary Steps have been created in response to the removal of P Levels

Schools can use Evisense to capture and evidence the achievements that pupils with SEND make. Many of the activities undertaken are temporary. Pupils are building a tower of bricks or mark making in sand/shaving foam and being able to record these is an important part of the assessment process. Evisense allows teachers to record these activities in a clear and simple way.
