A Performance Management target for me this year was to integrate 4Matrix with our school data systems, and to promote its use by teaching staff. I felt this would be a daunting task, but looking back, the response from staff at all levels has been universally positive. SLT have enjoyed the overview functions; middle managers have used 4Matrix to speed up the creation of data - leaving more time for analysis; and classroom staff use the subject profile to monitor pupil progress at class level.
Furthermore, the export options allow data to be easily presentable to any visitors that might arrive at short notice!
4Matrix is a comprehensive toolkit and there is much more to learn, but I am enjoying the process. Regular updates and quick feedback from 4Matrix via Twitter and email are really helpful, and overall, having 4Matrix is making my professional life a lot easier.
