The importance of robust school data has never been in the spotlight more than in recent COVID times. Switching assessment from exam boards to teaching professionals has shown that regular, rigorous data entry points are a must for any school. In truth, it has always been a must and once the shadow of accountability measures return, the wisest schools will be looking for ways to track performance throughout the year.
Data cannot just be a top-down approach if it is to be maximised. Finding ways to make teaching staff engage with data is often challenging for school leaders. Why waste your time looking at numbers and figures when your passion is in performing arts?
Schools Attain Analytics offer a solution to this. As citizens of the modern world, teaching staff expect their user experience of software to be intuitive and graphical with useful information obvious at a glance. Schools Attain Analytics provide rigorous school data analysis delivered in a way that can bring staff into the conversation; all levels of worker can clearly prioritise struggling students by spotting them at a glance on their class views, or see them stand out amongst a cohort thereby eliciting effective intervention.
Deputy head teacher Jon Cosgrove at Sandbach School, concurs:
“Schools Attain Analytics has been instrumental in engaging staff at all levels, especially during the process of establishing our centre assessed grades. It’s so intuitive, that just like most modern apps, our team has not needed training on the product. They like it, they use it, and we all see it as a very worthwhile investment”.
The post-pandemic choice of data analysis software will set the wheels of progress for students in motion and set the school up for the years to come. Schools Attain Analytics is a large improvement on the software of the last decades. Staff in schools work best when they engage and innovate. In order to do that they need an engaging and innovative data analysis package.
