Clear, easy to navigate menu options
The ILD has been designed to be user friendly with clear easy to use functions,
intuitive screens and help guides available when that little extra reminder is needed.
Observations and Assessments in the Classroom
Observation recording is simple, using the automatic transfer of photographs from
your own digital camera* to the photo library, spell checking written text and linking
direct to the Curriculum statements.
Alternatively, you might want to consider complementing your setup by using a mobile
device such as a tablet PC. This will allow you to take observation recording outside
of the classroom. Using data synchronisation, your data will be transferred securely
to and from your own encrypted database.
Save time and money by eliminating the need to print photographs, cutting them out
and sticking them into the children’s books.
Guarantee a professional and consistent approach when reporting progress to parents,
either through the parent portal or by printing a child’s portfolio. A nice touch
when talking to parents at parents evening.
Outcomes and the Curriculum
The assessment process uses the key areas of the curriculum, colour coded or labelled
for simplicity with the ability to view evidence from observations when an outcome
has been achieved. A traffic light system has been adopted to gauge the level of
ability against each statement.
The ILD contains all the age groups within the Curriculum for Excellence
for Scotland and the NEW 2012 EYFS in England, from Birth to the Early Learning
Goals including the 'Characteristics of Effective Learning'. However, due to its
flexibility a custom curriculum could be created by colleges or similar organisations.
Each child has an automatically created e-portfolio which will detail their observations,
progress and relevant evidence within including photographs. This can be produced
as a PDF document, ideal for parents evening and transition information.
Progress and End of Year Reporting to Parents
Reporting to parents can now be a simple process using our new End of Year reporting
functons. Simply choose a template which can include a front and back cover, select
various layouts and elements that your report should contain and order them appropriately.
Once configured the template will be available to users to write the reports. This
can be personal comments, pre-defined curriculum definitions or outcomes that the
pupil has achieved throughout their assessments.
You may define your own Attainment and Effort options for inclusion. Reports can
be printed to Microsoft Word or PDF for a whole class or individual pupil.
Our Parent Portal gives parents access to their child’s/children’s progress. They
can see observations performed, outcomes achieved and any next steps entered.
The portal is very easy to configure with a single click approach to providing readymade
introduction letters for parents. You always maintain full control on when the portal
is open and when observations become available to parents, even in real-time.
Directly link your observation to children's next steps/Plods with clear reasoning
and evidence that you are responsive planners to children's individual learning
and development needs.
My Voice allows settings and parents to record comments from children about the
child’s own learning and aspirations.
A child’s progress can be tracked using a number of comprehensive interactive reports
clearly showing achievement, evidence and areas requiring focus
Produce and/or print attractive reports for parents or moderation meetings. Really
show off your schools hard work and achievements when reporting progress.
