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.
Renowned education data blogger, James Pembroke, released a blog on 20th February 2017 entitled ‘Blueprint for a tracking system’. This is a ‘go to’ article for schools that are considering purchasing a tracking system, or reviewing the one they have. In the blog, James lists seven capabilities, which all tracking systems should make available to schools.
In November, I had another opportunity to go out to Dubai. The main purpose was to attend The Digital Education Show Middle East, hosted by Terrapinn at The Conrad hotel. We were successful in showing schools how we make tracking the British Curriculum in the Middle East easy.
“I’m really pleased to say that we are the 2016 ERA award winners for ‘ICT Tools for Leadership, Management & Assessment’ for primary schools. We have made loads of changes to OTrack and its suite of tools since the removal of levels. We now know that we have a pupil tracking system that will help schools, its’ nice that ERA think so too.”
