Presenting the 

Spindle prototype demo

Based on the information captured during alpha, a prototype named ‘Spindle’ was created. This video demo shows how the prototype can support teachers to undertake formative assessment in their classrooms — as well as additional functions that have been identified by teachers, school leaders, students and parents as being useful.

The prototype has been named ‘Spindle’ to symbolise the collection of the threads of student learning into a single point. It shows how various elements come together in one place to make things easier for teachers.

This video will walk you through some of the features of the prototype. Nothing is final and we would appreciate any feedback for further improvements you’d like to see. Your feedback is valuable and will inform future development.
