Academic Tracking is a successful intervention programme that is rooted in students reviewing their own work, tracking their progress and working to set their own goals and targets in order to realise their potential.
This 3-part series will outline:
1. The Why?
2. The How?
3. The When?
of initiating an academic tracking system in a busy post-primary school setting.
Encompasses the reasoning for formally embedding an academic tracking system that reflects on the LAOS document of highly effective practice. Academic Tracking is the opportunity to incorporate assessment as learning into student attainment, promote self-reflection and motivate students to change a grade.
The 'Why' of academic tracking will be explored as a whole school approach to academic monitoring that takes into consideration, all members of the school community: students, parents, teachers, and school management.
This part will cover the step-by-step approach taken to establish the academic framework in collaboration with all stakeholders. We will examine the challenges involved and possible solutions of implementing a whole school tracking system. We will discuss how a whole school approach leads to a collective responsibility and accountability for every student. In this session, we will explore tracking systems such as Athena Analytics, VsWare etc in more detail.
In this part, we will consider the timeline cycle for study skills, Target setting and academic tracking interviews and highlight the involvement of all stakeholders throughout the process. The goal is to create a supportive educational environment that nurtures every student’s potential as we share a common approach to academic monitoring and assessment across the school community.
The series will be delivered by two practicing teachers, Melanie Conlon and Olivia Duncan. They will answer any queries from teachers and open a platform for discussion.
