Paper vs Tech
A comparative study of reading assessment in primary school.
In partnership with Whytek Consulting we have undertaken a research project to understand how schools can best assess and support children’s reading progress comparing the use of paper-based PIRA and SATs assessments against our own AI-based assessment method.
This report compares the different aspects of reading that are assessed by the two systems, outlines how the participating school was selected and highlights the key findings from the study. It provides much food for thought for primary schools making decisions about assessment models for boosting pupils’ literacy development – and may prompt school leaders to review their current practices for both cost and effectiveness.
