Connecting Steps – detect even the smallest of improvements

B Squared’s Connecting Steps V4 hosted assessment software enables schools to detect even the smallest of improvements. It can be used to track progress across: EYFS, SEND, Primary and Secondary curriculums. The Company’s education team, all of whom are experienced teaching staff, have recently developed an assessment framework for children who have PMLD, SLD, or CLDD designed to enable teachers to identify and record the ongoing achievements of pupils who are not yet engaged in subject-specific learning.

Ease of access and security are key features within the software. Connecting Steps can be accessed via a web browser and an iPad app, meaning results can be recorded anywhere, anytime. The data is hosted on B Squared’s secure cloud. B Squared is already trusted with data for over 87,000 students and on average 32,000 assessment points are added into Connecting Steps every day.

Autism Progress – assess the impact of an individual’s Autism

Already in use by over 400 settings in the UK, Autism Progress is an observational assessment framework designed to help members of staff to support individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). It has been developed by B Squared, in collaboration with experts from three leading charities  – Autism Wessex, Scottish Autism and the North East Autism Society. Autism Progress aims to give the most detailed current picture of an individual’s capabilities. People can be profiled from birth to early adulthood. While each person with autism is unique, the difficulties faced can be divided into four key developmental areas, all of which are included in Autism Progress: Communication; Social Interaction; Flexibility of Thought; and Emotional Regulation.
