MAPLE is a transnational strategic partnership aimed at automating the Measurement of Attainment and Progress in Learning across Europe (Maple).  It is being carried out transnationally, as one of the pivotal aims is to provide comparative empirical data between countries.

The initiative addresses three key dimensions:

● Focus on computational thinking and finding out what pupils know and understand before and after formal teaching.

● The use of open source infrastructure and methods to support assessment from diagnostic, formative and summative perspectives.

● Acting as a focus in the shift to educate for understanding rather than learning procedures specific to technologies that are subject to rapid change and lend themselves to problem based approaches and the support of basic skills.

 

 3 Key Goals

*Reduce administration workload

*Provide post-levels progress measures

*Identify strengths and weaknesses

 

Two dimenions will enable us to achieve these goals

1 Technological innovation

2 Building alliances with like minded people

 

What teachers have said:

"Now I know what to teach in computing"

"It is great to get rid of all that paperwork!"

"Support is excellent and it's free!"

 

How it works...

  • Upload pupils from MIS system
  • Generate accounts for them automatically
  • Request the date and time for the test
  • Take the test
  • Get the results back with progress and attainment data analysis done for you.
  • Optionally print a certificate
