There are currently eleven different assessment types that you can use in Tapestry:


EYFS Assessment with Development Matters age bands

Every Child a Talker (ECaT)

Key Stage 1

Key Stage 2

Early Years Learning Framework (Australia)

Characteristics of Effective Learning

Leuven Scales

Aistear (Ireland)

P Scales

Northern Ireland Preschool Performance Indicators (NIPPI)

Northern Ireland Foundation Stage


Tapestry allows you to enable and disable these individually, so that staff have or do not have access to them when creating observations.


It's very straightforward to set these as you wish - simply log into the browser version as a manager and go to your control panel: 




Then go to 'Settings' and 'Assessments':




From there it's simply a matter of ticking the assessment types that you would like your staff members to be able to assess in, and then pressing 'submit':




Tapestry also allows you to choose whether or not your parents can see these assessments. It may be the case that you would like parents to see the less age-orientated CoELs and/or Leuven scales, but not EYFS assessments. To tweak those options, you need to stay in the control panel, but this time go to 'settings' > 'relatives':




In the 'Assessments' section of that Settings > Relatives page, you can selectively turn on or off these assessments for display to parents when they view the observations by ticking the appropriate tick boxes, then pressing 'save' at the bottom of the page:
