Integration with Hodder

Why use our integration?

Standardised assessments are a great way to ensure consistency and validity of progress and attainment judgements across the schools in your MAT. Take a look at our blog post to see how using standardised assessments could benefit your MAT.

Our 2-way integration with MARK allows you to bring standardised assessment data into Arbor for easy analysis!

The integration with Hodder Education's RS Assessment MARK System automatically sends student demographic data to Mark, removing the need for manual data entry and reducing the potential for error. You’ll no longer have to manually remove leavers or add new starters to your MARK system - with our integration this will happen automatically!

In addition to this, student results for Hodder’s PUMA, PiRA and GAPS termly standardised assessment tests are sent back to Arbor and displayed on our new School and MAT MIS dashboards. These dashboards allow you to analyse all your core student data in one place at both an individual school and whole MAT level.

For more information on this partnership, read our blog post.

 

How do I set up the integration?

For a MAT MIS

You will not be able to see any school PUMA, PiRA and GAPS data until at least one of your schools has set up the integration. Once the first of your schools set up the integration, the Hodder dashboards with then display data for that school. So you can see the data from each of your schools, they must each set up their own integrations. See the section below to see what this will look like.

If you are unable to see school data once the integration has been set up, check that you have an active Data Sharing Agreement with the school. Go to Group > Institutions > Data Sharing Agreements to manage this.

 

For a School MIS

Follow the instructions outlined by Hodder in the Setup Guide on their website:

http://rsassessment.com/sync-my-mis/

If you have any issues setting up the integration, please contact the RS Assessment customer support team on 0203 122 6006 or at onlinesupport@rsassessment.com.

 

Once you have completed these instructions, you will be able to see the integration is live because it will be displayed in your Arbor MIS. Go to System > Partner Apps (API Users) > Approved Apps. The App will display as Hodder Education in this table.

How can I see the data in Arbor?

On a School MIS

You can view all your data for PUMA, PiRA and GAPS assessments in your Arbor School MIS by going to Students > Assessments > Summative Tracking > Analysis > Overview Dashboard.

Here you can see a breakdown of the average standardised score and working levels for both assessments, compared with the statistics during the same term last year. Please note, during the first year of using MARK and Arbor, you may not see statistics for last year, as shown in the screenshot below. After a year, the bars will be colour coded based on your school's performance compared to last year.

You can hover over a statistic for more information.

You can click one of the statistics to drill down to see averages for each Year Group, Demographic and Ethnicity.

  • The yellow line is the benchmark or average for your school.
  • Green denotes that they are performing better than the average.
  • Orange denotes that they are performing worse than the average.
