SIMS Assessment: maintaining primary data
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.
SIMS Assessment: primary data analysis (on school data) (Cancelled)
This half-day session is aimed at headteachers, school leaders, assessment coordinators, INCOs/SENCOs and not administrative staff.
Delegates will be able to analyse their own assessment data remotely from our training room, with Data Management Services consultants on hand to provide guidance and support. SEND and Assessment advisors will be providing a short session during the course to provide further advice and guidance.
Delegates will gain a good understanding of assessment principles and procedures and understand how to analyse attainment and progress for groups of pupils in their school using key reports within AM7. This course is applicable to any schools who are subscribed to the HfL Primary PA Plus assessment resources.
