  1. Progress Tracker • Progress Tracker was developed in Suffolk LA. • It is designed to • Support good assessment practice in schools • Make the teacher’s job easy • Provide school leaders with useful analyses.

  2. Progress Tracker – our philosophy • Progress Tracker is designed to • Work with your existing SIMS MIS, so that data is kept safe. • Give back to teachers ownership of the data. • Allow teachers to see the whole school picture, not just their part in it. • Provide school leaders with useful analyses, not pretty colours.

  3. Progress Tracker – components • Use SIMS to manage pupils, groups and NC assessments and as the backup store for pupil assessments. • Use Progress Tracker for teachers to record NC assessments. Provide instant feedback through charts and printouts to help teachers monitor each child’s progress. • Use Progress Tracker Review Module to provide managers with cohort and pupil group analyses for review and evaluation.

  4. Teacher • Each term • Accurate and up to date information taken from SIMS • Teachers will see the full assessment history for every pupil across all subjects • Teachers record assessments in Progress Tracker and view pupil progress charts and printouts • All data exported back to SIMS at end of term Teacher Admin/SIMS Teacher

  5. At end of term • Up to date pupil and assessment history sent from SIMS to SLT • SIMS can also provide other information, such as gender, DOB, term of entry, ethnicity, SEN, etc. • SLT review pupil, cohort and group progress using features available in the Progress Tracker Review Module (some of these features are now available in the teacher module.

  12. Assessments and extra information from SIMS to Progress Tracker Teacher SIMS can add extra information to the mark-sheets. This means that you can produce analyses by gender, ethnicity, etc. Most of the review module features are now available in the teacher module Teacher Admin/SIMS Teacher

  19. Teachers’ Module details Each term teachers see a full assessment history for all pupils – historic data is protected from accidental changes Teachers record assessments for their pupils each term in Progress Tracker. School will decide which ATs are collected. Progress Tracker provides charts and printouts to help teachers monitor each child’s progress. Teacher Teacher Teacher

  20. Josh is in year 5. His termly Reading (En2) progress is visible to his teacher from the first time anyone assessed Josh. The dotted lines join the KS1 TA with the Fischer B and D estimates for KS2 Reading. This gives the teacher a “Track line” for comparison

  21. Soft Curriculum - Josh’s progress can also be plotted against school-defined criteria. The staff together agrees what would be useful to assess (e.g. wellbeing, disposition, attitude, attendance) and their interpretation criteria for the values in the range 1 to 5. Has Josh’s level of engagement affected his progress? Engagement

  22. How is Josh doing against current expectation? His maths is about one sublevel (2 points) above.

  23. Instant printout showing how pupils have moved on in Reading between any 2 chosen points in time. Have the top reading group changed since last year? Why are there pupils still stuck on level 3B? National Expectation in the selected term is shown by >Above =At ! Close, needing attention <Below

  24. Table showing where pupils stand in relation to national expectation in any particular term. The intervention group is clearly listed.

  25. Printout showing how far pupils have moved on in Reading between any 2 chosen points in time.

  26. Comparison against Fischer estimates for this term. James is 3 sublevels above expectation – is he the highest flyer in this class?

  27. The annual review printout offers a useful history of pupils’ attainment and progress and comparison against Fischer estimates for the selected term in any chosen subject.

  28. The annual review printout offers a useful history of pupils’ attainment and progress and comparison against Fischer estimates for the selected term in any chosen subject. Another printout produces the same information by pupil.

  29. All assessments can be copied to Excel to enable you to create your own analyses. This workbook has tabs for each AT both as NC level and as points scores. Another workbook is available where the tabs cover attainment by term.

  30. Review Module Managers pick up the full pupil assessment history for all pupils to date, including a range of other contextual data from SIMS that enables deeper analysis of performance. Pupil, group and cohort level analyses of both attainment and progress broken down by gender, DOB, term of entry, ethnicity, SEN, etc. enable managers to evaluate, review and plan ahead. Analyses are available as printouts and as interactive graphs. These features are available in the teacher module for analysis next term when teachers can see the full picture from the previous term. Review

  31. The review tables and charts provide analyses showing percentages of pupils in the selected groups. You can choose to view % at actual points or % achieving each point or higher. Analyses for combined reading and writing, mathematics and reading, writing and mathematics are produced as well. What can you say about achievers of level 3 in reading and writing? Breakdown of levels achieved by year 5 at end of year 4. Average points scores are shown for each AT. Is the whole curriculum being evenly addressed?

  32. Printouts can be saved as Adobe PDF files.

  33. You can choose to print the analysis using cumulative counts, e.g. % at level n and above.

  34. Analyses can be produced in MS Excel.

  35. Percentages of pupils moving on by sublevels over time.

  36. Percentages of pupils moving on by sublevels over time. Select a grouping (the list is selected when you create marksheets in SIMS and print the table again… Progress Tracker also allows you to create your own pupil groups for tracking – targeted pupils, booster or intervention groups are all handled.

  37. Look at whole school progress (all relevant pupils included. This can also be broken down by groups to give whole school pictures.

  38. Information can also be graphed. This will allow you to investigate and research more effectively as all information is to hand. By scrolling through the drop down boxes you can view information on any combination of factors This facility is available for researching both attainment and progress.

  39. Secure data transfer • CTF does not hold termly assessments • Progress Tracker can create a single securely encrypted data file to send to all receiving schools • Receiving schools can only pick up pupils who are already in their SIMS system

  40. The web site progresstracker.org.uk contains a wealth of information, including latest news and a blog that answers a range of questions

  44. Five reasons for choosing Progress Tracker • 1. Teacher assessment – the key to progress • 2. It’s customisable to your needs • 3. A whole school democratic view for teachers • Each teacher can see any pupil’s assessments to date in any subject. Foundation subject teachers can look at their pupils’ literacy or numeracy. Assessments are shared so that the pupil can benefit from teachers’ wider knowledge. The software protects historical assessments from accidental change. • 4. Detailed analysis for leaders • 5. Seamless transition through school and on transfer

  45. Five reasons for choosing Progress Tracker • 1. Teacher assessment – the key to progress • 2. It’s customisable to your needs • 3. A whole school democratic view for teachers • 4. Detailed analysis for leaders • Progress Tracker’s review module provides school and group level analyses through printouts and charts. It can pick up pupil attributes directly from SIMS.NET without your needing to re-enter them: Gender, FSM, SEN status, Ethnicity, EAL, Looked-after, and more. • 5. Seamless transition through school and on transfer

  46. Five reasons for choosing Progress Tracker • 1. Teacher assessment – the key to progress • 2. It’s customisable to your needs • 3. A whole school democratic view for teachers • 4. Detailed analysis for leaders • 5. Seamless transition through school and on transfer • Progress Tracker uses SIMS.NET marksheets so that you can pick up classes, teaching groups or year groups for each subject. While other tracking packages can only take data from SIMS, Progress tracker can also feed it back.  Progress Tracker ensures that all pupil assessment data is stored securely in SIMS.NET and stays with the pupil.

  47. How do I get Progress Tracker? Progress Tracker is available to all schools that use SIMS. The cost of the software is £200. This includes a half-day to visit, install and train key staff (SIMS admin and assessment). The annual licence is currently around £100 and is renewable in April.
