Results Day is an important time, for students and schools alike. On one hand, students will be anxious to learn if they have obtained the grades required for college and apprenticeship places, future university or job applications; on the other, schools and multi-academy trusts (MATs) will need to prepare to be judged on their achievements.
If you’re a senior leader at a MAT then you’ll want to analyse the results across all your schools. This could require you having to access multiple Management Information Systems (MIS), piecing together information from a variety of data streams. It's no wonder that, without the right data management tool, the process can be laborious as well as extremely time-consuming.
So, here are THREE pointers to help you ...
- Be prepared: make sure your systems are up-to-date with any changes, as outlined in 2019 School & College Performance Tables: Statement of Intent
- Be efficient: ensure your systems do the work for you, with no double entries or manipulation
- Be effective: make sure you have the right analytics/systems in place which allow you to drill down and compare exam results across every key area.
