Used Alps occasionally for 5 years+

Oct 2023

I believe Alps is an exceptional tool which, when fully utilised by schools and students, can have a hugely positive impact on student and school outcomes. There is real clarity in Alps reports with the opportunity to drill down to a really detailed level of analysis for self-evaluation and improvement.

Reply from Alps:Thank you for your review John, it's great to hear Alps is having a positive impact for your students.
John Fabes found Alps:
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency
    Where schools are working in partnership Alps provides an excellent common tool in developing consistent QA practices across all the schools especially in the setting of student expectations and monitoring progress.
  • Moderately improves school processes
    In local partnerships Alps data is considered when constructing the joint curriculum offer and where sustained under-performance in a subject is noted, it is likely to be withdrawn from future offers.
  • Moderately improves attainment
    The use of Alps in monitoring student progress and providing value-added feedback to subject teachers has a direct effect on improving student and subject performance year on year.
