Progress Over Time (Column) 

This column graph shows progress for an individual pupil in a single subject between 2 dates across multiple levels. You can click the Current Level button to run the report, the report will run starting at the level the pupil was working at when the report starts. This will show the progress made on this level and the levels above. This is a useful way to show progress for pupils with autism or where pupils work on multiple levels due to their needs. Each column represents a different date and the colours within the column are the different levels. You will see the progress within each level and also the overall progress the pupil makes.

Progress Over Time (Area) 

This area graph shows progress for an individual pupil in a single subject between 2 dates across multiple levels. You can click the Current Level button to run the report, the report will run starting at the level the pupil was working at when the report starts. This will show the progress made on this level and the levels above. This is a useful way to show progress for pupils with autism or where pupils work on multiple levels due to their needs. The colours within the graph are the different levels, which should increase in size as you move left to right on the graph. You will see the progress within each level and also the overall progress the pupil makes.

Progress Within a Level (Column) 

This column graph shows a pupil’s progress on the different levels of achievement within a level for a subject. The data shown is the same as the pie chart within Connecting Steps, but can show how the pupil has progressed over time. Each column represents a different date, with the colours showing the different levels of experience.

Progress Within a Level (Area) 

This area graph shows a pupil’s progress on the different levels of achievement within a level for a subject. The data shown is the same as the pie chart within Connecting Steps, but can show how the pupil has progressed over time. As the graph goes left to right, you should see more experiences, higher level experiences or moving on to Mastered. The colours showing the different levels of experience.

Progress on Multiple Levels 

This column graph shows levels of achievement for an individual pupil across multiple levels for a subject. The progress within a level can only show progress within a single level, but by running Progress on Multiple Levels on different dates, you can see how experiences and achievements change on different levels. This report is useful for pupils working within multiple levels due to their needs.

Overall Progress

This report shows progress in multiple ways for multiple subjects. For each subject it shows:

  • The student’s starting point (based on their current level)
  • The student’s ending point (based on their current level)
  • The student’s balanced progress – This means bringing up all areas equally, not leaving an area behind. This is the way most schools look at data
  • The student’s overall progress – This is calculated looking at the students current level and levels above for progress. It displays a percentage of progress over a number of levels
  • The student’s real progress – When a student is working on multiple levels the balanced progress can sometimes misrepresent data. When a student achieves a level, they jump up to where they are working on the next level, this can exagerate their balanced progress. The real progress is the actual progress they made on their current level. This is often different to the balanced progress when a student moves from on to a new level.
  • Percentage of Progress on Current Level – This value shows how much of their progress is on their current level. For students with SEND, it is very common to be working across multiple levels, they do not progress in a uniform way. Students with SEND should be assessed on more than one level at a time, when you do this, this percentage will reduce from 100% as they are making progress on other levels. You would also not expect to see this value say 0% as it means none of their progress was on their current level. This column is there to highlight issues. In most situations you should not see 0% in this column. For the majority of pupils with SEND, you should also not see 100% in this column.
