WHY CHOOSE SMID?
By using SMID, you can guarantee that every teacher is informing their classroom practice using the right kind of data. More importantly, they can effectively evaluate the impact of strategies they may have tried and respond accordingly.
The SMID Report presents data in a "friendly" format so that all teachers use it to support pupils!
Provide each member of staff with a simple A4 sheet which includes all the data they need to adequately support each pupil they teach.
Use the SMID Dashboard to drill down through the layers of data providing insights into performance and progress at all levels within a school.
Use the most up to date data to create seating plans that support teaching and learning on a day to day basis. These data rich seating plans allow teachers to plan their lessons for maximum impact.
SMID Wheel is an interactive chart that makes it really easy to drill down through the data from a whole school level to a single pupil.
Schools that join the SMID network will receive a dashboard and report for every data capture.
As a senior or curriculum leader use the dashboard to identify pupils who need support. The flight path will let you know immediately if a pupil / subject / group is below national average at any point during their time at school.Learn more
We firmly believe that teachers should not have to spend time analysing data. The SMID Report provides each teacher with a mini report per class, clearly indicating the pupils who need support. Amongst other resources curriculum leaders are provided with a summary of students in their subject who require intervention.Learn more
Give teachers the data they need to support pupil progress.
The dashboard is extremely clear and easy to use! With just one click it's possible to look at a subject/pupil/group of students or switch from a single data capture to progress over time. Our schools find that this ability to find out quickly where support is needed makes an incredible difference to pupil progress.View Example
Switch between a single data capture and the progress made over time with just one click.
Within SMID6 it is possible to evaluate progress at many levels. Change from looking at a whole year group to a subject or a student or even a specific group of students with real ease.
Within 10 minutes of a data capture being loaded the dashboard will be live. This allows teachers to immediately review the strategies they have in place and to evaluate if they are having enough impact.
Using the latest L3VA co-efficients to support progress within sixth form.
We use the most up-to-date co-efficients available to calculate the L3VA scores for each pupil. This provides teachers with a clear picture of the progress being made whilst giving senior leaders an accurate overview of school performance.Learn more
Staff can use either the dashboard or the report to identify pupils who are not making adequate progress. Middle leaders are able to see both an overview of their subject and access data easily on a student level. SLT can drill down through the data from a whole school level to individual students with just a few clicks.Learn more
We recommend using flight paths to evaluate impact!
"The SMID Path completely revolutionises the way schools can evaluate impact. This flight path model determines the value of each intervention within school, at a year group/subject/class and pupil level.
The example on the left compares all students in the year group to the pupil premium pupils within the year group. It doesn't take long to identify where the extra support sessions for PP pupils in Maths, English and Science began and these clearly
had a significant impact. The increase of 11.0 A8 score between Data Capture 10 and 11 clearly demonstrates that the extra sessions were valuable and had a high level of impact."
Provide your staff with the support they need to improve A8 and P8 scores.
Our dashboard provides easy access to headline measures, with the ability to drill down into groups, subjects and individual pupils. For example, if you were to introduce a new scheme to support disadvantaged boys you can, with just a few clicks, evaluate the impact this new scheme has had on both these students and the overall headline measures.
Immediately identify which pupils are achieving a C in Maths and not in English or vice versa. Our simple table allows for a quick and easy comparison to be made between Maths and English, enabling you to closely monitor those students not making a C in one or the other.
Easily view how much each pupil has progressed from one data capture to the next. This is where the SMID Dashboard comes into it's own, allowing you to identify the biggest changes both positively and negatively for groups/subjects/pupils and even the whole year group.
The SMID Path has been developed by Stephen Howse. He states, "The SMID Path enables teachers to see the rate at which a student is progressing/regressing between data captures - enabling us to be proactive rather than reacting when it's potentially too late to impact on student outcomes."
