Assessment continues to be important

At this strange time in education, the role of assessment continues to be important, keeping track of your pupils’ home learning is vital to planning for a return to normality and addressing any gaps.

Target Tracker continues to provide a time efficient way to record formative assessment and identify gaps for individuals and groups of pupils.

Our expert Education Advisers have created Home Learning Packs, high quality resources supporting the planning of activities and lessons for Primary school teachers to be used for distant learning.

Being able to easily assess pupils’ home learning against the identified Early Years Foundation Stage and National Curriculum objectives will help track pupils, demonstrate progress and when schools return to normal classroom practice, help provide an accurate gap-analysis as a basis for planning future learning.

We’re here to help you

We are delighted to be able to provide bespoke statement groups in Target Tracker to make all of the above even easier.

Within Target Tracker there are new statement groups which allow schools to focus on the objectives identified for each Home Learning Pack. When assessing statements in Target Tracker simply click the Statement Groups button and choose the appropriate Home Learning Pack.

Don’t forget that Statement Groups are only shown a subject at a time so use the Subject button on the ribbon to change it.

We will add new Statement Groups as new packs are published each fortnight.
