Tracking Pupils' Progress
Nimmons, Fidelia
Primary Science Review, n80 p13-15 Nov-Dec 2003
Schools in England have a range of data sources available to them to track pupils' progress effectively, ranging from national to school level. Tracking pupils' performance not only shows value-added evidence but it also helps the pupils and teacher see when and where they are doing well or not so well and the reasons for this. The records can also form the basis of end-of-year reports and discussions during parents' evenings. Tracking pupils' progress over time provides practitioners and other interested parties, such as parents and inspectors, with a true picture of what is happening to the pupils' learning in terms of achievement and standards. As such it is one of the most powerful tools in any programme for improvement, both for the school and the pupils. In this article, the author outlines a tracking system which provides a powerful tool for raising individual and whole-school standards. (Contains 1 figure.)
