From Simon Blower, former deputy head and Pobble co-founder


Given that we at Pobble are a team of (literacy loving) teachers, we’re really excited to be bringing a new assessment tool. Pobble Assessment resource allows teachers to create assessment files for pupils, and moderate their writing together with colleagues. This comes hot off the heels of our global literacy initiative being named as one of the top-five providers of education technology in the UK in the Great British Entrepreneur Awards.


So far as we’re concerned, effective assessment is instrumental to pedagogical success. "Research shows that teachers who moderate regularly assess more consistently."Research, such as that by Judith Warren Little at the Graduate School of Education at UC Berkeley, shows that teachers who moderate regularly are found to be able to assess more consistently, and to be more confident about their ability to accurately judge a pupil’s work. Therefore, our strategy is to show that in a seemingly ever-changing environment of Primary assessment, a collaborative approach is truly empowering for teachers.


We have now set out to develop a tool to facilitate the process. I led assessment in my school for five years; I know how important moderation is, but also how difficult it can be. I felt there was a problem to solve here. With Pobble Assessment, moderation can be done anywhere,Moderation can be done anywhere, at any time.",?span> at any time. What this means for you is fewer moderation meetings and less travel time between schools, making collaboration within trusts, chains and Local Authorities a lot easier.


I’d love to think we have a truly amazing tool here, one that will save teachers time and will empower them to focus on inspiring their children to learn. Our assessment tool is open to teachers that are keen to use it in their day-to-day teaching. Registration for free access is open, but keep in mind that places are limited and access will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.
