TAP Assess is a cloud based assessment tool for both teachers and pupils. It was created for teachers by teachers to make assessment simple and accurate, and to involve pupils in their own assessment.
Formative assessment is made by teachers either during the lesson, whilst marking or following a formal assessment. Assessment can be made at home or school and entered directly into the cloud based service. Assessment can be done on a tablet device, a laptop or a desktop. Assessment data is updated in real time.
Pupils assess their own progress
At the same time, pupils assess their own learning. They indicate how secure they are with a particular learning objective by using the same cloud based service as the teachers. Pupils are awarded stars when both they and the teacher think they are secure with a learning objective. Pupils accumulate stars during the year and are automatically rewarded with certificates when they hit certain milestones. A pupil leaderboard runs throughout the year for core subjects to motivate pupils to achieve their potential
All staff can view progress against year group expectations, anytime from anywhere. Reports identify underachieving pupils and the specific areas that they need support with. Priority children are flagged and their progress is easily trackable. Parents can view the progress of their child at any time.
