Assessment for Learning: Helping to Predict Grades Accurately
EDClass has developed an incredibly successful assessment structure that benefits from over a decade of working closely with educational establishments so that progress and quality assured assessment of learning is available instantly. Our remote education provision has also been inspected by Ofsted where our data and assessment for learning aspect was highly praised (see our testimonials and Ofsted report here).
EDClass has proven to impact a range of learners and identify progress, evidenced in our recent Ofsted report (July 2019). The report confirms how we strive to work and support our learners and partnership establishments to help highlight individuals, classes and cohorts assessment for learning over a topic, remote learning pathway or over time.
"Teachers use information about learners’ starting points effectively to identify learning and support needs. They provide personalised coaching and one-to-one support that enable learners to make at least the progress of which they are capable. Teachers use high-quality online resources innovatively to help learners engage in learning. " Ofsted Report
All our assessment methods are extensively tracked and monitored. From diagnostic assessments to practice exam papers, EDClass incorporates more than a tracking system, it applies a technique capable of establishing gaps in learners’ knowledge and systematically assigns learning resources to the identified areas for improvement as shown below in our skills gap analysis section.
The evidence then creates the continuous assessment process within EDClass that is personalised per learner.
The assessment and skills analysis grid highlights progress, strengths and weaknesses.
This creates a personalised learning pathway for remote education which is tailored to the individual or class group alongside live lessons or catch up or virtual face-to-face delivery.
The image shows the steps and process of how our diagnostic exams, skills analysis and assessments highlights gaps in knowledge and start the personalised learning journey. Helping every student attain, develop, and attends the live, on demand or catch up sessions to improve.
Teachers, administrators and learners will receive feedback from our markers and assessors. You will receive a comprehensive breakdown of every answer with:
- Reports (daily, weekly and termly)
- Live feeds
- Assessment of learning progress (via our charts)
Alongside this the administrator will be able to instantly download the report ready for any inspection.
When a learner logs on, everything is tracked and recorded for safeguarding, monitoring and assessment purposes. It then starts to create a personalised learning pathway that includes regular assessment and diagnostic tests along their learning journey.
We have a range of teachers, support and wellbeing workers to assist learners in all aspects when they are remotely learning live, on demand or independently.
Lesson completion reports
A learner’s progress and attempts to make progress are tracked when using EDClass so the teacher can identify where a learner’s strengths and areas to develop are.
The range of progress can be tracked in multiple ways:
For example, in Maths, when a learner meets objectives and achieves well, EDClass recognises this and automatically assigns more challenging lessons.
Likewise if a learner struggles with certain questions, the system will detect this and assign lessons with revision on those identified topics.
As a learner progresses, more challenging lesson content and tests are set.
As progress happens through the each learner addressing their gaps in knowledge, then whole school attainment levels rise in English, Maths and Science.
By allowing the remote education platform to deliver a huge amount of subjects, live teaching, support and the facility to access these remotely drastically has improved the outcomes for all.
