Exams, Assessment and Diagnostics

In recent months, EDLounge has worked with inspirational senior leaders with the aim of adapting our present tracking technology in our cloud platform. We wanted to produce a unique system which can be tailored to suit any educational organisation’s 'assessment without levels' approach. 

Our assessment framework incorporates:

  • mastery statements
  • teaching and learning progress grids
  • student achievement statements
  • objective-based tracking
  • formative assessment
  • summative assessment
  • analysis of performance by teachers and learners
  • parental involvement

Our assessment system:

  • is tailored and made editable for any establishment
  • can address any assessment approach
  • supports individual progress
  • uses a range of assessment tools to capture and record progress
  • uses technology to track attainment and progress
  • produces reports instantly for staff, learners and parents

We launched our 'assessment without levels' software in EDLounge to work for any of our schools. ‚ÄčOur framework also includes the objectives found in English, Maths and Science. We can also incorporate any type of summative or formative feedback into our software. Whatever your approach to assessment without levels, we can adjust our software to match your needs. Our assessment system enables you and your staff to create a model of assessment which they know will work for you all.

Tracking and reporting

Within our 'assessment without levels' software we have incorporated a curriculum and assessment builder. There is comprehensive tracking and progress reporting for individuals, classes, target groups, catch-up groups, year groups or key stage group (as below):

Our assessment tracking and reporting helps you:

  • compare each learner’s standard of attainment against school and national expectations

About our assessment package:

Easy-to-use software

Within our 'Assessment without Levels' software, your teachers have the facility to create, mark, monitor and report on:

  • exams
  • lessons
  • projects
  • coursework
  • end of unit tests
  • end of unit baseline tests

You can also monitor and report on:

  • progress made in ‘close-the-gap pathways’ for learners trying to catch up
  • subject performance for each learner, class or target group in the classroom, in EDLounge, independently, in exams and homework (as below - incorporating percentages)
  • week-by-week/term-by-term progress

The software also allows your staff to:

  • track against levels of progress (as below)
  • stipulate how much progress must be made per year
  • measure whether pupils are on track to meet end of Key Stage expectations
  • show lesson-by-lesson/week-by-week/term-by-term assessment and progress
  • identify strengths and weaknesses against expectations per year/per topic/per term/per half term
  • provide feedback and comments regarding what has been done well and what needs to improve per lesson, topic, term, year and Key Stage
  • report all tracked data to staff, learners and parents
  • help faculty/staff recognise where learners are struggling and address problems immediately (showing different types of graphs and indicators like below)

Learners: expectations and progress

Learners also have a facility, at the end of term/assessment/module to evaluate their own:

  • effort
  • behaviour
  • attainment
  • strengths and weaknesses

and to set their own targets whilst evaluating their progress (as seen below for learners, teachers and parents)

Examples of what our 'Assessment Without Levels' framework can offer your establishment (primary or secondary)

Our assessment grading system can incorporate any approach: grades, images, points, percentages, colours or statements. We can link any of these types of results to learners’ expected levels of progress in each topic, term, subject, year or key stage.

We have made more changes recently in light of DfE Recommendations:

  1. The facility to have a range of assessment types to recognise the opportunities arising from the revised curriculum and the removal of levels.
  2. We can tailor our assessment methods to meet the needs of all schools and develop their assessment policies.
  3. Comprehensive new tracking to provide school leaders with data to enable progress to be monitored across year groups and over time.
