CM Leader pathway, Level 1
Outcome: Understanding of the structure and settings of your assessment framework(s) in Classroom Monitor 
Why it matters: The assessment framework(s) that your school uses should fit your school’s requirements in terms of:

  • how they will be used for formative assessment

  • how data will be generated from them

Time to complete: 15 minutes
NB If you want information to transfer and update from your MIS automatically then you should set up an MIS sync; access Learning Guide L1ai.


Your choice of framework

Classroom Monitor does not tie you to a particular markbook framework. This means that you have the freedom to use a framework that works for your school. 

We have a range of ‘off the shelf’ frameworks that you can choose to activate in your account. You can find more about these in the ‘Markbook Frameworks’ section.

If you have a framework of your own that you would like to use in Classroom Monitor, please discuss this with us as it may be possible to create markbooks containing these objectives.

Markbook data

Assessment judgements recorded in the markbook are used to generate percentage scores for each pupil in each subject.  Percentage scores for any calendar month can be viewed in PROGRESS. This will always show the latest percentage calculated in that month. 

Data from markbooks can be viewed in the following reports:

  • School Overview

  • Year Group Overview

  • Class Group Overview

  • Matrix

  • Score Tracking

  • Curriculum Tracking

  • Multi-Ability Tracking

  • Judgements

There are two different types of markbook score that can be viewed in the reports in PROGRESS: 'Overall Percentage' or 'Percentage of Assessed'.

Overall Percentage: This is based on all objectives in the ability/year group selected. It shows how well a pupil is progressing through those objectives. In the example above, the pupil has fully achieved 3 out of 5 objectives in the ability level, giving 60%.

Percentage of assessed: This is based on only the objectives that a pupil has been assessed on in the current academic year. It shows how well a pupil has achieved in what they have been assessed in. In the example above, the pupil has fully achieved 3 out of the 3 objectives they have been assessed on in the current academic year, giving 100%.

Both types of percentage take into account the colour of assessments recorded for the pupil. In most frameworks, the colours are weighted as shown in the table below.













Example markbook calculations

NB Overall percentage calculated here is on the basis that these are all the objectives in Y1. Percentage of assessed calculated hers is on the basis that all of these assessments were recorded in this academic year and no other assessments were recorded in this subject in the current academic year.

Customising your framework

If you feel that you need to make changes to your framework to better support teaching and learning in your school, this may be possible. Please contact your Onboarding Manager to discuss.
