Easy to Use and Secure Evidence System

Evisense was created to provide teachers with a simple way to store evidence of learning, that saved time and increased productivity.

Schools often spend a large amount of time, money and effort building paper-based evidence portfolios. Evisense enables teachers to change the way these portfolios are created, moving from a time-consuming paper-based approach to an easy-to-use digital system.

A teacher can capture, link and annotate evidence using the Evisense app in under a minute. Alternatively, schools can use a digital camera and upload photos or videos via a web browser.

Evisense makes it easy for schools to manage evidence of learning digitally and Improve Assessment Process.

Easy to share

Parents can use Evisense

Share evidence with parents. It takes seconds to share evidence with parents. Evisense can notify parents when you have shared evidence with them.

 

Meaningful communication

Photo/video evidence can be used to show a student’s achievements. Seeing what a child has achieved really brings their successes to life, helping to demonstrate a child’s progress to their parents in a relevant and meaningful way.

 

Different access levels

Schools are free to decide what levels of access to provide to parents. Schools can allow parents to comment on evidence or even add their own evidence, to demonstrate the student’s achievements at home.

 

Choose what a parent sees

Parents will only see their child’s evidence, but they don’t have to see everything. Teachers can choose which pieces of evidence to share with parents.

 

Parents only see their child’s evidence

Parents and Guardians are linked directly to students, this means that when a parent logs into Evisense they can only access their own child’s evidence of learning.

 

Safeguarding of protected children

By marking a child as being on the Child Protection List, it prevents other parents seeing evidence, even if it is marked as ‘Share with parents’.

Link evidence to achievements in Connecting Steps

Connecting Steps is a great partner to Evisense. Connecting Steps highlights the assessment points that a pupil has evidence linked to. Teachers are able to view and watch the evidence inside of Connecting Steps.

 

Link evidence to additional areas

Evidence can also be linked to a variety of additional areas including EHCP targets, IEP targets, four broad areas of need, characteristics of effective learning, and 4 capacities of learning (Scotland). Teachers can then use these to filter evidence.

 

Bring a child’s achievements to life

Evisense can be used to enhance communication with parents, Schools can share photos and videos through the Evisense app or website. This rich media tells a much stronger story than a graph or a written report.

 

Improve the moderation process

Teachers can quickly and easily view work of a similar ability, make comparisons and use evidence to support their academic judgements. Evisense enables schools to develop a bank of evidence to use for moderation.

 

Develop a holistic view of a child’s achievements

Teachers can capture evidence of academic successes, but they can also capture all the other experiences that they have during their time at school. Evisense can be used to demonstrate broader achievements such as personal growth, the development of skills for life as well as input from speech and language therapists or other specialists.
