We all know the adage that weighing the pig does not make it fatter… and so it seems do Ofsted:
“Schools choosing to use more than two or three data collection points a year should have clear reasoning for what interpretations and actions are informed by the frequency of collection”.
Anecdotally, as I visit schools up and down the country, it is clear that many are moving to a 3 times a year data drop model rather than half-termly, and now that straw poll has been backed up with some data.
We’ve noticed that most schools who are changing their tracking methods are moving from a linear-based approach to a Point In Time Assessment model.
Schools and MATs have told us that the Point In Time Assessment (PITA) solution fits perfectly with their philosophy of the current curriculum. They also tell us that it’s saved them hours of time, so more effort can be dedicated to teaching and learning.
In partnership with our GDPR consultants and legal team, we have carefully scrutinised the GDPR, and we’ve taken the necessary steps to identify where we needed to comply and where any changes needed to be made.
We are pleased to announce that all our processes and technologies are documented and compliant with the GDPR, our staff have been trained and we have released our new legal documents. You can view these documents by using the button below.
We’re really excited to be able to introduce OTrack 2018. We have included many improved features, all developed using modern technologies – allowing us to lay the foundations for future innovations in pupil tracking.
