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.'

DR SIMON WALKER, CO-FOUNDER, STEER EDUCATION

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'

Pangbourne College

The AS Tracking app data was incredibly helpful in trying to support those who have been struggling in lockdown.

Cranleigh School

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.

Kingston Grammar

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.

Reeds School

IN RESPONSE TO LOCKDOWN, STEER LAUNCHED AN IMMEDIATE 5-STRAND STRATEGY TO SUPPORT SCHOOLS AND SAFEGUARD STUDENTS.
