Measure and track a pupil’s literacy progress

This literacy assessment system provides online tests to measure and track a pupil’s literacy progress. There are three types of literacy assessments available – phonics, spelling and reading comprehension, all of which are based upon standardised data. With the current focus on literacy, this system provides an effective tool to evaluate the measures schools put in place to improve literacy standards.

“It’s crucial that all schools realise that this is just a check, not a test, in order to identify where the children are in their learning and what needs to be done. We assess our pupils’ understanding every six weeks, taking into account our phonics programme and teacher assessment. If children’s abilities are regularly assessed and tracked, assessment outcomes become more predictable, because we can intervene straight away and support the child to next level of learning, keeping them on a good trajectory. As a result, the screening check confirmed our own regular assessment outcomes.” ST THOMAS MORE ROMAN CATHOLIC PRIMARY SCHOOL,

ROCHDALE, Good practice as identified by the DFE
