Identify learning priorities
Smart Revise has a wealth of reports that teachers and students can use to track progress and use for formative assessment.
The top 10 least understood questions (also available in Terms and Advance) show teachers where there are misconceptions and knowledge is weak.
This data is ideal for planning mini-plenaries to recap core knowledge. Using the report, teachers can hover over the coloured bars to see which students were giving which response for more targeted intervention.
In addition to a report that shows how much and how often students are engaging with Smart Revise, teachers can also see at a glance how well students are progressing with the questions.
Checking understanding, obtaining a high success rate, weekly and monthly review are key Rosenshine principles.
Identifying the priorities for re-learning through regular, planned formative assessment is a key aspect of raising attainment.
As a part of data-driven instruction, progress tracking enables teachers to capture learning data and evaluate academic progress toward school goals for individuals, groups, and the entire class. Providing valuable insights into the efficacy of assignments, lesson plans, teaching methods, and even the curriculum as a whole.
Put simply, data-driven instruction is when educators collect and analse big data on student learning to drive classroom instruction. While the phrase “big data” might sound scary, all it really alludes to is the scale and scope of the data you collect. Whereas traditional student data tracked macro-scale progress through summative assessments and standardised testing, big data incorporates daily classroom and assessment information for a detailed view of student performance.
Data-driven instruction is a continuous process in which educators gather student information, perform data analysis to identify weak spots, and make the necessary adjustments
