Key Stage 2020 – Devon Schools

This is not a statutory requirement.

Babcock has produced an Excel Spreadsheet for recording end of year assessments for Reception, Year 1 Phonics, Year 2 and Year 6 pupils.  These sheets look to take a March Assessment for Reading, Writing and Maths and to assign this a Security Rating.

For schools using SIMS, it would be possible to put this data in using SIMS Assessment Marksheets.  Scomis have produced 4 mark sheets that Schools can import into their SIMS and use to record this data.

There are 3 simple steps

1. Download and Import the Templates

2. Attach the relevant Year Group or Class to the template

3. Fill in the Marksheets which can then be exported into Excel.

Step 1 – Download and Import the Templates

Download & Save the Babcock Assessments XML here – Babcock Assessments

Log on to SIMS – you will need to have School Administrator or Assessment Co-Ordinator permissions.

Routines – Data In – Assessment – Import.

Browse to the Babcock Assessments.xml file and select it for import.

Click Next.

Make sure Import Templates is selected and click Next.

Select all the templates to import and click Finish.
