Secondary Steps

An easy to use observation-based assessment framework for secondary schools

Curriculum: Secondary National Curriculum – Key stages 3 & 4 (GCSE)
Connecting Steps assessment framework: Secondary Steps


GCSE predictions and progress monitoring across key stages 3 and 4

B Squared has created Secondary Steps for the assessment of pupils who are working across key stage 3 and 4 of the National Curriculum. Used within our Connecting Steps software, this framework helps teachers with GCSE predictions and to monitor where pupils are on the 1-9 flightpath system.


Simple, clear reporting

Connecting Steps assists with the observation process by breaking down the stages into smaller steps, enabling teachers to record what each pupil has achieved and identify their next steps.

These assessments can be displayed in a variety of ways, such as individual and group reports and graphs - to quickly and easily highlight progress made.

1 to 9 flightpath system to track pupil progress

Based on the new 1 - 9 GCSEs, Secondary Steps is designed to be used from Year 7 onwards. We have created our new 1 to 9 flightpath system to track pupil progress across Secondary Education. The software contains breakdowns across over 25 GCSE subjects between years 7 to 11. Teachers can use the breakdowns to identify which flightpath a pupil is on and the skills they need to achieve by the end of the year to remain on track.
