Getting Started Guide

This guide covers everything you need to know when starting to use our Connecting Steps assessment software.

 

Getting Started Video Guides

The First Steps video helps you get familiar with the software, explains the key screens and shows how to navigate your way around. It’s under 20 minutes and packed full of useful information.

Before you can start to assess using Connecting Steps, you need to make sure the Super Administrator at your school has set your default frameworks in our administration portal MyBSquared. Until this has been done, your assessment frameworks drop down menu will remain blank and you won’t be able to add any assessments.

 

Bite-sized Training Videos

If you prefer to work step by step, there’s also a series of short online training videos to take you through key screens and help with specific tasks.

 

Guide to Reporting

This guide explains how to use the different reports in Connecting Steps to show progress for all pupils.
