Electronic Tracking in Revised EYFS


Guest

Recommended Posts

Hi there

 

Can anyone recommend an effective tracking system which will suit school nursery class and YR? The school I work in bought the RM Integris (G2) EYFS bolt on tool as they already use G2 from Y1 upwards, but it starts at 22-36 months, and many of my children in nursery as well as some in Yr turned out to be in earlier age bands in some areas when I did the on entry data. I've asked the school office manager to contact RM to see whether earlier age bands can be added but still no joy. In the meantime, I'm having to do all the data manually, which takes forever.

 

I've looked at Classroom Monitor as that covers all the DM age bands and the ELGs, but suspect I will come up against some objections to buying this as it costs £200 a year, as opposed to the £50 for G2 (though in my opinion there's no point in having a system which doesn't do what you need it to do, even if it costs nothing).

 

Does anyone have any experience of Classroom Monitor (or any other system) before I go mad?

 

Thanks.

Hi there

PRAMS is the reason I took out my subscription :-)

It's been a while since I looked at it properly though and comments I've seen in other threads seemed to suggest it wasn't really a tracking tool. Maybe I should look at it again, thanks..

I'm not sure which threads you have read- maybe the ones about Tapestry which is an online learning journal, and not a tracking tool?

PRAMS was designed as a tracking tool- you allocate age bands within each aspect for your individual children, either as a best fit approach or as an "emerging, developing, secure" judgement. Data analysis is robust and thorough, allowing you to analyse progress for individual children, or groups of children, across different assessment periods which you set up, eg termly, twice-yearly, etc.

Is this the kind of thing you meant? :1b

Have only just caught up with the replies, so thanks to all who gave me more info about PRAMS. I'm still no further forward with G2 so I will definitely have another look, as it is indeed a tracking tool I need, to do all the things mentioned in Helen's post above. Thank you :-) x

Our school has just bought classroom monitor but it doesn't seem to be able to record when a child has met the ELGs as separate from 40 -60 months. I know 40-60 is important, but as the ELGs are statutory it seems important to be able to know which children have attained some of them. There is also no possibility to record anything about 'exceeding' statements. Does anyone else use this system? I would love to use PRAMs by the way, but the head wants something that will work from nursery to Y6.

I think that is going to be our problem at school.

You may be interested to know that the KS1 curriculum has been available within Tapestry for a couple of months (along with just the snapshots view for now) and KS2 is coming soon. :1b
