It’s a new year and a new term, which means that most schools will have recently carried out end-of-term assessments for teachers to gain a summative insight into how the needs of their class have changed over the first term. Subsequently, many will have identified children who require extra support to keep them, or get them, on track.

The predictor is one of the many fabulous features of Clicker and DocsPlus. Using the predictor results in greatly improved coherence, spelling and grammar, and helps to increase the writing productivity of learners who struggle to transfer their knowledge and ideas to the page.
