As we reflect on the experiences of our clients in implementing the change from paper based practice assessment to mobile device based assessments, we have noticed a curious and unexpected benefit that has been achieved through the change process.
Through moving to digital and mobile practice based assessment forms, the grading schemes, whether its 'fail/pass/merit', 'level 1 - 5' or 'Poor/Satisfactory/Good/Excellent' has typically evolved over the years to a consistent grading method for all practice based assessments. This is driven through the accumulation of data and by the ability to easily review assessments in a digital format, providing the whole school with a clear analysis of results.
The benefits that have come from this include:
So it may be simple and obvious, but our top tip from experience of implementing Myprogress for practice based assessments is to adopt a consistent grading scheme for your assessments. Good luck!
