SPAtracker

Quick Overview

A student and cohort tracker providing school leaders and teachers with an “on-balance” assessment of where any one student (or cohort of students) is performing at any one point in time and an “on-balance” assessment of how much growth a student (or cohort of students) has made between any two points in time. Importantly, score will all be converted to Australian Curriculum equivalent scores (AusVELS scores for Victorian schools).

Student Tracker

The Student Tracker component of the SPAtracker module will provide teachers with an “on-balance” assessment of where any one student is performing at any one point in time and an “on-balance” assessment of how much growth a student has made between any two points in time. Accordingly, it will provide two types of student level analysis.

Product Highlights

  • First, it will display all of a student’s results for any one semester across all assessments undertaken by that student in that semester (including NAPLAN, PAT, Text Levels, On Demand, etc.). Importantly for teachers, all results will be displayed both in their original scale score metric and as approximate AusVELS equivalent progression point scores so the teachers will be able to make an “on-balance” judgement about the student’s level of performance in that semester against the Australian Curriculum.


  • Second, the Student Tracker component of SPAtracker will display all of a student’s results across all assessments undertaken by that student across any two points in time to give an “on-balance” assessment of the amount of growth that student has made between those two points in time, along with an effect size.

Cohort Tracker

The Cohort Tracker component of SPAtracker will provide school leaders and teachers with information that can be used for both School Reviews and for Performance and Development procedures by providing an “on-balance” assessment of where any one cohort of students is performing at any one point in time and an “on-balance” assessment of how much growth that cohort of students has made between any two points in time. Accordingly, it will provide two types of cohort level analysis.

Product Highlights

  • First, it will provide the ability to select any cohort of students (e.g. a class, all Koorie students, all EAL students, all Yr3 students, etc.) and view summary information about that cohort both in scale score points and AusVELS equivalent progression point scores for any one Semester.


  • Second, it will show average cohort growth between any two points in time (e.g. end of previous year to end of current year, mid-year to end-of-year, etc.) expressed as an AusVELS score, effect size and as a scale score.

Between August 2014 and July 2015, this module will also encompass the first component of what will become the SPAmanager. This first instalment will allow schools to keep detailed information about students in the form of notes (e.g. Individual Learning Plans) and alerts (e.g. medical & welfare alerts).
