Coming soon...

More Examinations improvements

We’ll make it easy to see when a student is entered for overlapping KS4 or KS5 qualifications, e.g. Photography and Fine Art, so you can make amendments if necessary. You’ll also be able to email exam time tables to guardians!


Record, save and submit observations, e.g. lesson observations, using a template created by you. This includes creating your own gradeset, themes and strands to be observed.


We’re always improving our Assessment features - next are our Progress over time and Below, at or above pages. We’re also adding new marks to show when a mark was not required for the student and the ability to see combined measures for Reading, Writing and Maths.


If you want to propose your own improvement idea, contact our Customer Support Team.
