Assessment Without Levels Made Easy!

An online solution that adapts to your learning objectives and complements your school's existing assessment methods. We make it easy for you to assess pupils and focus on what you do best ...

Teaching!


Assessment for learning that works for you.

Focus assessment on the Classroom. Don't get bogged down in tables or endless paper documents.

School assessment doesn't have to be taxing!


Visualisation Data never looked so friendly.

If you thought data visualisation involved a few static lines and blocks of colours, think again! At yorschool we love the latest web based visualisation, it makes school assessment data fun and intuitive, seriously, it's never looked so good!


Reporting Does the hard work for you.

As a headteacher, member of a subject leadership team or a class teacher, we appreciate you'll want to be able to report on the attainment of your pupils. For Ofsted, SLT meetings or parents evening, yorschool's built in reporting will work for your school.


Security Your data, our priority.

We take security seriously. We only trust the highest security data centres to run yorschool. In addition, ALL pupil data is encrypted. We'll always talk to you about the steps we take, security is our priority for your school.



Assessment for learning

Assessment without levels made easy.

Fundamental Principles of Assessment.

Why should your assessment software dictate your assessment method?

That is a question which is at the heart of our principles. Yorschool does not want to mould you to a predefined assessment method. Rather, if you're using a binary measure or a multi-point scale, Yorschool fits your assessment without levels.

"Finally we have school assessment software that can truly drive teaching and learning in the classroom"

"At our school we now have meaningful performance data from classroom assessment acquired using yorschool"

Visualisation

Data never looked so friendly.


Assessment Without Levels data, you'll want to see it.

We firmly believe that there is no point generating data if you don't want to then look at it.

yorschool® uses the latest web technologies that showcase data in an interactive (almost playful!) state. Why have static bar charts when at the command of your mouse you can filter and drill down into class and pupil data.

Security

Your data, our priority.

Our approach to security

We appreciate there are different approaches to security. Provision of a secure area to store and manage data as sensitive as pupils names, addresses and other confidential identifiers can ultimately be through a physical server hosted within the school grounds or through cloud based architecture.

With advances in technology and investment in infrastructure by key industry pillars such as Amazon, Microsoft and Google a primary consideration for a systems security is no longer having the ability to 'pull the plug' out. Rather, independently verifiable cloud services which carry an extensible compliance framework create a highly professional approach to security. This is one which is not affected by a school break in or local power cut.

As a company we demand a service that can be measured by the most up to date security standards but can also change to meet the latest regulatory standards. Our partner provides services under United Kingdom G-cloud OFFICIAL Accreditation. This rating benefits a broad range of UK Public Sector organisations, including Local and Regional Government, the NHS and some central Government bodies.

Yorschool infrastructure carries the following accreditation:

G-Cloud OFFICIAL

Specific steps we take

While we believe it is important to outline our approach to security, it's more important we give you specific details about how we would care for your data.

The following is a list of steps we take to secure all aspects of yorschool. These are steps we will NEVER compromise on.

  • Starting with your visit to app.yorschool.com, we encrypt everything from your browser to app.yorshool.com
  • Communication between app.yorschool.com and the databases we use is encrypted.
  • The database holding pupil data is encrypted at rest. This means that even when the data is not moving between the database and app.yorschool.com it is still encrypted. Unauthorised access to the database would resemble a jumble of letters and numbers.

The databases we use are located in secure data centres managed by Microsoft with strict levels of compliance. The following is a specific list of standards our infrastructure adheres to:

  • ISO 27001/27002: Internationally recognised information security controls
  • SOC 1/SSAE 16/ISAE 3402 and SOC 2: Audited against the Service Organization Control (SOC) reporting framework for both SOC 1 Type 2 and SOC 2 Type 2
  • Cloud Security Alliance CCM
  • United Kingdom G-Cloud OFFICIAL Accreditation: The same standard for all UK Public Sector bodies.
  • PCI DSS Level 1
