What is formative assessment?
Formative assessment monitors student learning to provide ongoing feedback that can be used by educators to improve teaching. Continual formative assessment can also help to indicate where an intervention or accommodation may be beneficial. Feedback from formative assessments can also be useful for students to help them to improve their learning and study.
Our tools, designed with the universal design for learning principles in mind, help educators and students alike during exams time, and during ongoing assessment throughout the school year.
Accessible maths exams
Allowing all students to demonstrate their mastery in maths is crucial. With a computer reader, this can be done without compromising the integrity of the examination. The JCQ Access Arrangements state that for maths, “[A Computer Reader] may decode symbols and unit abbreviations in Maths and Science examinations for candidates who require this arrangement in order to access the assessment and where it reflects the candidate’s current and normal way of working within the centre.”

“A student at the Trust was not using their human reader during exams, they weren’t asking them to read for them. They were then given Read&Write to use as a computer reader instead which gave her the confidence needed to reach her full potential.”
