IT Support

STEER provides excellent, expert and efficient IT support for user schools adopting our technologies

AS Tracking is not another school IT or Management Information System. Unlike those systems, AS Tracking does not simply channel, organise & present your own existing data back to you. AS Tracking supplies you with a layer of entirely new insight about how your children are developing.

- The tool harvests that layer of information through a short bi-annual online pupil assessment schedule, developed to measure how pupils are steering their thinking;

- The AS Tracking platform then interrogates your pupils' data against a huge database of global data;

- Analysis is supplied in real time back to teachers through both the AS Tracking browser & app user interfaces;

- Teachers interact directly with the data reports and follow step-by-step procedures to write targeted action plans to support identified pupils. These are stored on both our server, but can also be linked to your MIS, emailed and shared to all staff, and are updatable.

- Pupils' progress is recorded at the following assessment rounds, curating a narrative of their development from the age of 8-18. This AS Tracking record can be electronically and securely passed from one school to the next as the child progresses their education.

- At the age of 18, that data becomes the pupil's; we provide them with an app, USTEER, to take their data away to continue steering their journey beyond school at university, in a job or in life in general.

In summary

- AS Tracking is not an MIS but integrates with an MIS, supplying a layer of cognitive data not otherwise available to schools

- AS Tracking harvests this data through a proprietary scientific assessment, faciliated by an online platform**

- AS Tracking equips and informs teachers' targeted pastoral care, using this data, instantly accessible via mobile app and browser UIs

- AS Tracking records the development of a pupil from the age of 8; at 18 we provide an app for the pupil to continue steering their journey

- AS Tracking is GDPR compliant through privacy by design
