“NTS Assessments are important when determining where children are at, and Shine helps us to really target interventions afterwards without it taking a lot of our time to analyse the data. They’re good materials - very clear for people to pick up and use and there’s a proper step-by-step approach that works for TAs as well as for teachers.”
"The ‘Prepare, Do, Review’ format of Shine worked well and saved us time. For the learning sequences, we found the teacher guidance clear and easy to follow. The lesson plans gave a good amount of detail and were great if handing over to a teaching assistant because they were able to run with it."
The package is easy to use and gives... a good base of assessment rather than different platforms we have tried using in the past. We now have a uniform whole school assessment.
