Once files are uploaded the SMID Tools will be at your fingertips and ready to use. These tools will provide a better understanding of pupils progression and encourage collaboration within and between schools.

TOOLS

SMID TRENDS

This tool allows you to identify trends by comparing the headline measures for data captures across multiple year groups. This could be particularly useful for comparing GCSE performance in different cohorts or comparing current Year 11 performance with past results.

SMID WHEEL

Provides a fantastic means of ‘drilling down’ to find useful data when planning/discussing teaching and learning, SMID wheel is ideal when you require a little more depth than the report.

Data Capture Comparison allows you to identify specific learners who achieve a measure in one data capture and don’t in another.

PROGRESS TO TARGET

Reach promptly to ‘in year’ data. Intervening and adapting teaching and learning via our progress to target tool often has a telling positive impact.

Assure consistency across departments in assessing behaviour and attitude to learning. This tool can encourage and facilitate teacher conversations around ‘what works’ with pupils.

SMID SEAT

You can support staff by giving them the power to create data-rich seating plans in a couple of clicks. Customise and save your own plans or choose from alternatives such as Kagen grouping.

PUPIL REPORT

This tool will generate an individualised PDF report for each pupil. Really useful for feeding back to pupils/parents/carers.

REPORT

The report feature allows teaching staff to see, at a glance, exactly where their pupils are in terms of current performance. Based on the most recent data capture, many teachers keep this to hand, informing day-to-day classroom practice.

GROUPS

Create the ‘Groups’ you focus on as a school. E.g. EAL, PP. Compare and contrast accordingly.

PROGRESS SECTION

This function promises early intervention with pupils where an issue may not have previously been ‘picked up’ until much later. Again, brilliant for encouraging dialogue between teacher and teachers/pupils. The colourful Flight-path system makes it easy to identify trends and changes in performance over time.
