Tapestry or PRAMS for 0-5yrs?

Not sure I should answer this one Nuby - it's probably up to people using it to give their views. There are lots of things you might need to consider, such as the fact that PRAMS is free to download, whereas Tapestry is a hosted service which we have to charge for. Here are a few things to think about:

  • Do you want access to and contact with parents? PRAMS doesn't really do this - it's simply an internal progress tracking and monitoring program, whereas Tapestry emails parents with new observations, enables them to comment and submit their own photos and observations etc.
  • Do you want a replacement for a physical learning journal or do you simply need a tracking program. PRAMS has the edge as a tracking program, although Tapestry is becoming increasingly good at analysis and tracking.
  • Do you want to be responsible for your own data (security, backup etc)? Tapestry stores and looks after your data online, whereas PRAMS lives on your computer and stores your data there.

Thanks guys just trying to work out what we want as a setting...I really want to minimise paperwork and if we can collect data that is enough to show a child's progress and can be tracked over time then we don't need learning journeys.... so PRMAS in that respect would be ideal. Could I try it out Steven ?

Staff love PRAMS it shows progress which is all thats required. Observations can be carried over throughout child is with us to provide a learning journey if parents want one. Good choice of individual reports. I e-mail them to parents if they cannot come in at look at them.
