“This e-portfolio based assessment solution from TAG Assessment supports AfL, student reflection and professional development for schools and colleges, universities and professional accreditation. “We have seen MAPS used with great success at Writhlington School. The students were designing, building and testing parachutes to deliver aid in remote locations. As part of this, they used MAPs to create a project diary in which they documented the various iterations of their design. It also allowed them to photograph and record the testing process. These diaries were easily shared with the rest of the class. What particularly excites us about this product is its potential for project based subjects. If the exam boards could endorse the use of software like this, it could change the way GCSEs or A Level submissions are accepted. It would aid the assessment of the iterative design process.” Panelist, Lydia Beaton (James Dyson Foundation)
