Assessing Pupil Progress (APP)

This course has been designed to assist assessment co-ordinators, school administrators and class teachers in using the new pre-defined APP Grids to assess pupil progress based on the National Strategies guidelines.

The provided grids automatically link to the Capita Pre-Defined tracking pupils' progress marksheets and aspects.
The screens follow the paper versions provided on the National Strategies website. The user can highlight achievements of each bullet point, add notes, e.g. observations as evidence of the achievement, comments and overall assessment.

Who should attend?

School staff with responsibility for assessment procedures and who have knowledge of tracking pupils' progress in SIMS Assessment.

How will I benefit?

This course will enable you to produce electronic versions of the APP grids which will be available for everyone to view in SIMS. You will also be able to link these to marksheets to provide the ability for group analysis. It is designed to help cut down on the use of paper.

What will I learn?

At the end of the course via remote access from our training room you will be able to:

• Import APP Progress Grids and Marksheet Templates
• Set up APP Progress Grid Templates for entry
• Set up APP Marksheets
• Enter/edit results into the APP Progress Grids
