Assessment

In recent months, EDLounge has worked with inspirational senior leaders and spent many hours reading literature, educational papers, journals, blogs, editorials and white papers with the aim of adapting our present tracking and technology within our cloud platform in order to produce a unique piece of software and 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 students
  • Parental involvement

Our Assessment system:

  • Can be bespoke and 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
  • Reporting is instant to staff, students and parents

We launched our assessment without levels software within EDLounge so that it can work alongside any of our schools. We have now created a unique platform to incorporate Mastery Statements, objective tracking and teaching and learning progress grids, alongside an assessment grid which can be tailored to any schools assessment framework. ‚ÄčOur framework also includes the objectives found in English, Maths and Science to be identified throughout the year to incorporate any type of summative or formative feedback into our own software. Whatever your approach to assessment without levels, we can manipulate 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 and which will suit them.
