Earlier this week I was asked by a school if SIMS could create a transition matrices to show expected progress between KS2 and KS4. A lot of secondary schools have asked about this, which is also referred to as ‘three levels progress’. Here’s the video demonstration I created:


1. The final tracking grid created in the demo can be refined by adding colours (red for pupils not making expectations, green for pupil who are exceeding expectations). Tracking grids can also show ‘summary columns’ giving the percentage of pupils above, on and below expectations.

2. Tracking grids are easily amended to show the more challenging ‘four levels of progress’.

3. The group filter on the grid allows schools to analyse their FSM, pupil premium, SEN pupils etc.
