Event Description
Working in consultation with the primary advisers, Data Management Services has created resources to enable schools to record pupil assessments within SIMS Assessment Manager 7 (AM7).

These include reports to analyse assessment data for an individual pupil, cohort or vulnerable group, based on information already held in the SIMS database, e.g. pupil premium, SEN, low attendance, etc. The purpose of this course is to maximise delegates' understanding of how to utilise SIMS to record assessment data for pupils in Key Stages 1 and 2 and run assessment analysis reports, using the HfL AM7 resources.

The processes covered in the session are applicable once the teacher assessment judgements have been determined by the class teachers. A second delegate from the same school, sharing a computer, will be charged a discounted rate.

HfL has allocated six discounted places for schools sending a second delegate, on a first-come, first-served basis. A further half-day course is available, focused on data analysis using own school data see 19DMS/069.
