Each stage of the NEA is broken down so pupils can be tracked at a micro-level. As you fill in their grades each cell changes colour in a traffic light system from red to amber to green.
Each stage is totted up for you as you fill in the marks and a final mark given. I know what SLT and HODs require this fits the bill in in detail and will show off your and your pupils work in great detail. You can edit this to your will in Excel.
There are two pages:
The actual interactive tracker which changes colour and adds up your marks.
