Testimonial

MERiT… was a really useful way of seeing how my students were performing compared to others across the country.  We were waiting on Ofsted and it was reassuring to be able to show data that was comparable not estimated.

I like that I can analyse data by class, by subject, by topic and by question. I can see if a particular teacher has a strength or weakness or if there is a topic that students are struggling with.

[Data entry] is worth the effort for the information it provides.  It is much easier and quicker now that data can be entered with clicks of a mouse.
