Use evidence of learning to demonstrate the smallest steps of progress
Reporting challenges for special schools
Special schools face two particular challenges when it comes to reporting on students’ progress. Firstly, demonstrating the progress made by each individual student (however small) and secondly communicating this to parents in a meaningful way.
Many of the activities undertaken by students with SEND are temporary - such as building a tower of bricks - making them difficult to record in a written format. More capable students may be able to complete a complex task but struggle to write about it. Being able to record these achievements using photos and videos is an important part of the assessment process. Teaching staff can use this evidence of learning to show achievement and demonstrate progress in a relevant and meaningful way.
Manage evidence of learning 'the easy way'
We developed Evisense in response to feedback from teaching staff who were frustrated with the amount of time spent collating supporting evidence. This digital solution eliminates the laborious task of cutting and pasting photographs into reports, so staff can focus on supporting students. Evisense has been designed to be secure, collaborative and flexible, providing an evidence management tool that fits with the way teachers work. It is ideal for students with all types of special needs, from those with PMLD or SLD, through to students who are working below age related expectations on the National Curriculum. This make Evisense suitable for use across a wide range of SEND settings.
