ASSESSMENTS IN SONAR TRACKER
To predict and maximise pupil outcomes, high-quality teacher assessments are key.
Sonar Tracker has been designed to ensure all the right information is available and clearly presented to help validate and accelerate the decision-making process.
Sonar Tracker has a simple system for entering teacher assessments evolved from the tools in the market-leading OTrack and Target Tracker software; this straightforward method uses a Point-In-Time (PITA) approach to deliver a simple, measurable value with a real focus on outcomes.
Teacher workload is widely recognised as a serious concern and Sonar Tracker increases efficiency wherever possible. With a ‘collect once, use may times’ approach, we’ve identified many opportunities to reduce assessment workload pressure. Statutory teacher assessments are threaded through the Sonar Curriculum Objectives. This means your teachers do not need to assess pupils on the same objectives twice and Sonar Tracker makes the process of deciding and recording those statutory measures, rapid and straightforward.
All English national curriculum statutory assessments, including SATs, may be recorded
Sonar Tracker’s latest unique feature has been created for teachers to reduce assessment entry workload and improve data accuracy and consistency.
The new effective assessment feature saves you having to enter summative data for every assessment period if there’s no change and the teacher judgment is the same.
There is little doubt that the quality of information gained from formative assessment is unsurpassed. But the time required from teachers to keep it up to date means the balance of value vs workload can be tough to manage.
Juniper Sonar Curriculum Objectives
Sonar Tracker comes with the trusted Sonar national curriculum objectives built in. Designed to support effective curriculum planning, the framework has been designed by curriculum experts to ensure it covers the breadth of the curriculum while being mindful of teacher workload.
Up-to-date and Flexible
Any DfE changes to statutory frameworks will be reflected in the Sonar Curriculum objectives, meaning you can rest assured you are always up to date.
Tests can be a powerful tool for evaluating progress and validating other assessments. Test recording, in Sonar Tracker, is flexible and designed to suit your specific requirements. Tests are not just scores but have defined ranges to indicate age-related expectations and tests applicable to each child can be easily recorded.
