England Schools -
SMID covers key measures in England with a real focus on all staff being able to use data to track the progress of all students. Below is a summary of some of the trackable measures/features available within SMID.
SMID Trends Walkthrough
Our collaboration with ASCL brings to life the fantastic ideas of David Blow. Together with Duncan Baldwin (ASCL) and Stephen Howse, the team at SMID have developed a number of brilliant tools to compliment these ideas. The project aims to provide schools with an opportunity to analyse final results data like never before - for free.
SMID allows you to keep track of your progress 8 score throughout the year with the ability to look at each basket separately whilst also evaluating the impact of each subject.e.
Monitor the progress of your Attainment 8 score across all year groups. Quickly identify any students/classes/subjects or year groups that see a drop in Attainment 8 score.
Track the EBacc in multiple ways including % entry, % 9-4/9-5 and EBacc average point score. SMID makes it easy to see both headline figures and individual students who will/will not meet the requirements for each EBacc threshold.
PROGRESS TOWARDS TARGET
SMID allows you to add your own in-house target grades and then monitor progress towards these on an individual/class and subject level. You can quickly identify any students/groups of students who are not meeting their targets.
The transition matrices within SMID make it very easy to identify students who are clearly underperforming. It's also possible to compare performance within many subjects to the national average specific to that subject.
PERSONAL SCORING SYSTEM
Use your own personal scoring system? For example, in Y7-9 you may take a different approach to grading students than Y10-11. Create your own scoring systems and apply these to the SMID dashboard allowing you to track progress across all year groups.
TARGET SETTING TOOL
The KS4 target setting tool provides pupils with target grades based on the point score they are expected to achieve using the most recent Attainment 8 estimates published by the DfE for each bucket (Maths, English, EBacc and other).
