Before we step into managing DPR, we should familiarise ourselves with a few concepts. At its core, DPR allows you to sequence your curriculum in an intuitive manner and provide students/parents with real-time access to their progress.
DPR structures your curriculum using the "Pathway model" which you can read more about here.
Here's an example of what a teacher sees when assessing a students' Geography performance.
And here's a breakdown of some of the concepts shown in this example
- There are 2 subjects shown here, "Geography" and "Memory Geography"
- The student is assigned pathway B for Geography
- The key objectives for Geography are shown listed in the table with a judgement shown for each collection
- Collections allow you to have multiple data points through the year and normally align with term times. Each collection has a start and end date and becomes read-only after the end date has elapsed. This facilitates tracking progress.
- Students are assessed using Judgement keys which in this example consists of N (Not yet assessed), C (consolidating) and D (developing)
- At the bottom of the table, we have Grade options (e.g. Attitude to learning, Current Grade, Projected grade etc.)
- These are also assessed in every collection
We can move onto setting up DPR.
