Checkpoints

This article will show you how to configure checkpoints for levels and will give you a better insight into how they are hardcoded into the early years and steps assessment platforms.

Checkpoints are collection periods to record assessment data, there are maximum of 7 a year:

Checkpoint Term Date
Baseline Start of Year 01/09/2019 - 14/09/2019
Checkpoint 1 Autumn 1 15/09/2019 - 31/10/2019
Checkpoint 2 Autumn 2 01/11/2019 - 31/12/2019
Checkpoint 3 Spring 1 01/01/2020 - 28/02/2020
Checkpoint 4 Spring 2 01/03/2020 - 30/04/2020
Checkpoint 5  Summer 1 01/05/2020 - 30/06/2020
Checkpoint 6 Summer 2 01/07/2020 - 31/08/2020

 

Checkpoints for Early Years

Checkpoints for the early years foundation stage are hardcoded into the ScholarPack software so if you are using this assessment platform you will not need to set up checkpoints. 

If you are using the early years markbook you may see that you are unable to change the checkpoint you want to enter data for, this is because the system by default locks the checkpoint to the term you are in. If you want or need to flexibility to enter data in retrospectively you can change the systems setting by going to Admin > Config > Steps Assessment Config

You will see a column called Lock Checkpoints EYFS, you will need to change this to No and update through the Edit function.

Checkpoints for Steps and Statements

Checkpoints for Steps are also hardcoded into the ScholarPack software, if you are using this assessment platform you will not need to set up any checkpoints.

If you are using the summative markbook you may see that you are unable to change the checkpoint you want to enter data for, this is because the system by default locks the checkpoint to the term you are in. If you want or need to flexibility to enter data in retrospectively you can change the systems setting by going to Admin > Config > Steps Assessment Config.
