SISRA Ltd offer two web-based solutions for schools: SISRA Analytics enables schools to track the progress of students from Key Stage 3 through to 5, using whichever ‘life after levels’ assessment system they’ve chosen, and calculate the new performance measures at the click of a button. SISRA Observe simplifies the observation and self-evaluation process, allowing users to record, store and analyse the results to identify strengths and weaknesses in the quality of teaching. Both services are intuitive and easy to access and use for all levels of staff.
Do your school’s processes ensure that the right type of CPD is being provided to the right people at the right time? And crucially, is the impact measured? Countless studies tell us that carefully-designed, insightful staff CPD can help raise standards and pupil attainment, as well as positively contributing to staff retention and recruitment, welfare, happiness and morale. However, research (Goodall, Day et al, 2005) suggests that many providers don’t have sufficient evaluation processes in place.
In recognition of school’s embracing technology in and out of the classroom on a day-to-day basis, the team at SISRA have been working on a number of improvements to their Observe service for monitoring the quality of teaching and learning. One of the major new features is the Focus Area report, which allows schools to perform detailed analysis of a particular aspect of teaching.
SISRA Ltd invite you to join them at the BETT Show (25th–28th January) on Stand D410 to find out more about SISRA Analytics, their data analysis service and SISRA Observe, their teaching and learning service.
