Case Studies

Case Study

Using Alps has been part of a whole school improvement strategy to use data effectively with the aim of bringing about an improvement in outcomes.

Case Study

Pupils themselves do not aspire to meet a threshold or a performance indicator, they talk about achieving the best grades they can, so it makes sense for us as teachers to be doing the same thing.

Case Study

Our drive has been based on smart multi-dimensional and accessible data with succinct but impactful analysis.

Case Study

Alps Connect Interactive allowed us to have a clear and universal language to analyse and interrogate predicted and actual grades.  At leadership level, the Alps report also provided an analysis of key groups and a teaching and learning grade that would inspire further discussion and action.

Case Study

Alps data and reports can be generated instantly at any time of the year – giving constant diagnosis of anticipated results. Connect Interactive has undoubtedly enabled teachers to have an even closer focus on individual students.

Case Study

The biggest strength of using Alps was the common language being used. If one member of staff was using ‘Red 3’ in a discussion, everyone knew what that meant.

Case Study

The speed of publication of the Alps report in August enables us to immediately identify areas of success or concern for both subject areas and student subgroups. The simplicity of the data presentation allows all stakeholders at Purbeck School to participate in the quality assurance discussion.

Case Study

Alps Connect Interactive has become everyday practice at Penistone Grammar School; it is part of our language. We would highly recommend the use of Connect Interactive as a diagnostic tool to drive continuous improvement for all students.
