We are very pleased to share the news that SIMS Assessment with the SIMS Teacher app has been voted best ICT Tool for Teaching, Learning and Assessment at the Bett Awards 2016.
We prevailed against a long list of other providers, including Target Tracker and 2 Simple Software.
After the ceremony Phil Neal said: “I am delighted that SIMS Assessment with the SIMS Teacher app has won this award. It is testament to the sheer dedication of our development team to have created such a comprehensive solution to support assessment in schools.
“Teachers are no longer confined to recording achievement as levels, and schools need the flexibility to assess against the curriculum being taught. I’m proud to say that SIMS Assessment and the SIMS Teacher app support best practice and allow teachers to record assessments whenever and wherever they need to. What’s more, they can also combine the latest behaviour, attendance and achievement data with their assessments for a more detailed understanding of individual pupil outcomes and whole school impact.”
The judges found SIMS Assessment to be easy to use, with valuable user guidance and information. They said that its ‘interactivity and collaboration between schools, parents and pupils is triangulated well’, and that ‘the system is very good at highlighting to staff, pupils and parents where there are developmental needs'.
We’ve also had some great feedback on SIMS Assessment from a number of schools including Leanne Takaki, office manager and data assessment at Wistaston Academy, who commented: “SIMS has driven change in the classroom by giving us a greater focus on assessment, attainment and progress. Teaching and lesson plans may also be altered in accordance with pupil monitoring to impact on learning.”
