Mark Anderson (ICTEvangelist) joins Al Kingsley (MD of NetSupport) to discuss the primary assessment solution, ReallySchool, on NetSupport Radio.
ReallySchool offers a fresh and intuitive approach to capturing student learning experiences according to best practice. It was developed to help primary teachers and teaching assistants (TAs) meet Ofsted’s requirement to collect evidence of skills acquisition for EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) and Key Stage 1 children, to prove they are meeting their skills targets. This is usually an onerous task for teachers and often means that teachers are taking photographs, printing them out and physically sticking them into each child’s achievement log – a task that, more often than not, eats into their own time.
Al Kingsley comments “For teachers and TAs, the simple-to-use tablet app ensures the easiest and most flexible approach to capturing observations in the classroom. It helps them save time as they log and store evidence for each pupil with its pre-populated lists of all of the points of academic expectation for each year group. For example, it details the targets of behaviour; communication and language; literacy and numeracy; physical development; PSE; understanding the world; and interpersonal skills that Reception class children should be able to achieve. It also allows teachers to log the different levels of mastery as a child learns”.
