Curriculum customisation is available to all schools on a subscription basis. To customise an existing framework you will need to be logged in as the school admin user.
There are a number of different types of scoring systems available in Classroom Monitor:
- A set of progressive levels is the most common e.g. the Rising Stars Progression Framework, where objectives are assigned to each level and get progressively more difficult. Overall scores are calculates based on percentages achieved in the markbooks and can be expressed as 3 sub-levels, 6 sub-levels or simply as a percentage. These can be used in the markbooks and/or the attainment and progress area
- A mark range can be used as an alternative e.g for standardised scores. These cannot be used in markbooks but can be used for entering scores in the Attainment and Progress area.
Existing subjects should already have ability levels assigned to them. You can view what these are by selecting a subject from the subject search page of the curriculum customisation tool and then pressing the Edit button and choosing levels.
You can choose to either edit existing ability levels if you wish but on this page we will look at adding new ability levels and scoring systems. These can be added from those that already exist within the Classroom Monitor system or some new scoring method can be created from scratch.
Building a New Scoring System
Pressing the 'Create A New Ability' button will take you to a screen which allows you to edit or add a level. At the top of the page, you will see a range of options.
Examples of how to set up the three different types of level system are shown below.
Progressive Levels With Sub-Levels
There are a large number of sets of ability levels that are available for you to use in Classroom Monitor. On the Abilities screen, you can select from a range of options by choosing from the 'CM Levels' options. Your chosen ability level set can then be selected and the abilities that you want added. You can then edit these if you wish.
Progressive Levels With Percentage Only
Scores will appear in the markbook as shown here. Percentages can be viewed in the pupil tracking area but not changed.
The best way to add a mark range is to choose from the large number already available for you to use within Classroom Monitor. You will find that these cover a large variety of mark ranges.
On the Abilities screen, you can select from a range of options by choosing the CM Levels: Mark ranges option in the dropdown as shown in the image on the right. Your chosen range can then be selected and added.
If none of the pre-existing mark ranges meet your requirements then you may want to consider creating a mark range of your own. To set up your own mark range, click on yes under Is Mark Range. You will then be able to enteryour range into the Low Ability Point and High Ability point boxes to create your range.
