Fine Grades analysis
Effectively plan for different scenarios based on ‘secure or at-risk’ fine grades by modelling their impact on your subjects. Use your own internal fine grades notation so that Connect speaks your language. See our new Help Video on setting up Fine Grades.
You can now add custom columns to your Connect Interactive analysis, so you can add additional groups for analysis, for example, SEND or feeder school. See our Knowledge Base for detail on how to do this.
Accuracy of in-year predictions is a key tool to support staff in improving the consistency and quality of predicted grades. Alps Connect allows you to identify which subjects are most or least accurate. Our monitoring accuracy tracker will allow you to ask the right questions of your staff and share best practice across departments.
