Herts for Learning Online
:: Making effective use of AM7 for SENCOs ::
Outline
This course will enable INCOs/SENCOs to gain a good understanding of assessment principles and procedures, empowering them to use Assessment Manager 7 (AM7) to analyse attainment and progress for groups of children in their school. Delegates will gain hands on experience using AM7 with their own school’s data and will learn how to use key reports within AM7. Your school must be using the Herts for Learning AM7 templates for termly tracking of pupil assessment and delegates should have a basic familiarity of SIMS and AM7. A second delegate from the same school, sharing a computer, will be charged a discounted rate. HfL have allocated six discounted places for schools sending a second delegate, on a first come first served basis. Please note that we will send instructions (to the email address used to book a place onto this course) for setting up a computer in school to be connected to remotely during the session. Please ensure that you book a place on the course at least a week before it takes place to allow sufficient time for your network support provider/technician to set up the remote connection. If this is not done before you arrive at the course, you will have to use our training dataset instead during the session. We will also require a permission form to be signed by the headteacher or deputy headteacher and returned to us (or brought with you to the course), otherwise the remote connection will not be possible.
