What is Primary Tracker?
Bromcom’s Primary Tracker is an assessment tool built especially with Primary Schools in mind. It is easy to setup, doing away with the complexities assessment tools often have and provides you with visual, user-friendly Marksheets for entering marks and a set of powerful yet simple tools to help you analyse your Primary Assessment data. It’s always being updated too, to make it even more powerful and customisable.
The Primary Tracker supports Summative Assessment, Formative Assessment, the Early Years Foundation Stage and Test Scores.
The Primary Tracker uses a wizard-style approach to help you get up-and-running. Each wizard is tailored to the Assessment type it supports and you can customise the Assessment type to suit how your school works.
Once the wizard has been, run you are ready to start entering data into the Marksheets. The Primary Tracker Marksheets have been designed to be clear and uncluttered, giving teachers tools to reduce the time spent entering data, and giving them immediate feedback by using colour-coding to indicate the level each student is working at.
