:: SIMS Programmes of Study ::
Outline
The Programme of Study Tracking functionality in SIMS enables schools to track attainment and monitor student progress against the National Curriculum Programmes of Study at KS2 or KS3. Teachers can easily record both their regular formative assessment and the more traditional termly (or half-termly) summative judgements against specific statements of the National Curriculum, all in one place. The Programme of Study Tracking analysis clearly indicates a student’s progress towards National Curriculum End of Year of Key Stage expectations. Schools can also indicate which knowledge or skill statements are the focus for teaching for a specific term. This enables teachers to monitor progress against school specific expectations, providing analysis based on the knowledge, skills and understanding of what is actually being taught. In addition to the prescribed National Curriculum Programmes of Study, schools are also able to add or edit user defined subjects, strands and statements, enabling the customisation of resources to reflect the language and curriculum being taught in your school. Programme of Study statements, results and comments can also be used in Assessment Individual Reports created from Assessment Manager.
