How does AS Tracking Detect work?
AS Tracking Detect is an short online pupil-voice assessment, repeated 2-3 times / year at home or school, which tracks the 'steering biases' developing in the mind of a student.
AS Tracking Detect is based on pioneering science into 'student steering biases' conducted by STEER over 15 years of research. Steering biases influence the health of social and emotional relationships which a student forms, their developing mental health, and their social competencies. Begun through research at Oxford University, STEER's AS Tracking has now been widely used by leading UK and international schools for the past seven years.
In 2019 Sky News reported on how one AET academy has used AS Tracking to reduce self-harm by 20%.
Schools using AS Tracking have :
REDUCED STUDENT SELF-HARM BY MORE THAN 20%
REDUCED MENTAL HEALTH RISKS IN 8 / 10 STUDENT CASES
IDENTIFIED CHILDREN AT RISK OF GROOMING, COUNTY LINES AND OTHER HIDDEN VULNERABILITIES
IMPROVED SCHOOL PLACEMENT SUCCESS AND ACCESS TO LEARNING FOR VULNERABLE STUDENTS
'STEER HAS TRACKED UK STUDENT MENTAL HEALTH SINCE 2013. WE ARE ONE OF VERY FEW ORGANISATIONS WHICH HAVE ACCURATE DATA ON THE IMPACT OF LOCKDOWN ON UK STUDENTS' MENTAL HEALTH. WE ARE NOW IN A STRONG POSITION TO SUPPORT SCHOOLS RETURNING FROM LOCKDOWN TO NAVIGATE THE JOURNEY BACK.'

STEER has supported schools and safeguarded students across the country during lockdown
During lockdown the STEER 'supporting vulnerable pupils' tool has been an absolute GAME CHANGER. The ability to look across a range of biases and pick out targeted comments has been hugely positive in our remote student interactions'
The AS Tracking app data was incredibly helpful in trying to support those who have been struggling in lockdown.
The lockdown remote assessment was extremely efficient. Some chose to do it on their mobile phones using the app, others via a link on our Firefly platform.
The AS tracking profile has given me such insight into how my student's mind might be working. During lockdown, the strategies that I'm trying with him seem to be working. From his mum’s email, we have one happy boy at home right.
IN RESPONSE TO LOCKDOWN, STEER LAUNCHED AN IMMEDIATE 5-STRAND STRATEGY TO SUPPORT SCHOOLS AND SAFEGUARD STUDENTS.
* STEER has remotely assessed the mental health of nearly 10,000s of students at home over the past 4 months
* STEER has guided teachers' remote interaction with their students to give them personalised, targted messages
* STEER has provided vulnerable student surgeries to support at risk cohorts during lockdown
* STEER has supported families by releasing a new mobile app to support better family interactions
