To enter OTJ data for an individual student
1. Go to the student's profile
2. Click the Menu icon
3. Select the student's Maths, Reading or Writing page
4. You will see a graph of student progress, under which will be two sliders for entering level data and buttons for School expectations.
5. Above the sliders are coloured increments showing the OTJs previously entered for the student. These colours reflect Below/At/Above. To see what historic School expectation/National Standard these relate to you can hover over the colour and a pop up will show.
6. To see a full assessment summary for an individual student, click on the menu icon (three lines) next to their name and navigate to their Assessment Overview. Here you will see all the assessments entered into LINC-ED for the student over the last 18 months, ordered term by term. This is designed to enable teachers to view assessment information easily in one place to assist with making an Overall Teacher Judgement.
7. Teachers must slide the slider on the left hand side to the level they decide is an Overall Teacher Judgement. This will automatically generate a Not likely to be at, Likely to be at, Already at OR Below, At, Above statement. Schools personalise a statement that correlates to these buttons that they can choose to make visible to parents.
8. To delete an OTJ, slide the slider back to the far left hand side, click the rubbish bin icon, confirm the deletion then refresh the page.
Some key points to note when entering National Standards data are:
1. Assessment data does not automatically populate the School expecation sliders. These sliders are designed to indicate an Overall Teacher Judgement (OTJ) based on a range of assessments and observations. Teachers are required to move the slider based on their OTJ.
2. Teachers should not need to click the Not likely to be at, Likely to be at, Already at OR Below, At, Above statement buttons on the right hand side. This will override the levels set by the school.
3. If teachers disagree with the statement that is generated for a level, this should be discussed with the school senior leaders, as this is personalised and set by the school to ensure consistency.
4. If teachers disagree with the wording of a School expectation statement this should also be discussed with the school senior leaders as this is personalised by the school.
