Introduction
The English Tracker has been developed as part of a joint project between the Schools
Development Group and the Department of Education of WA.
The Schools Development Group is a not-for-profit organisation established in 1980 due to
a need to provide exchange on co- operative teaching approaches and school design
improvements. The activities of the Group have come from identified needs in public
education by educators and parents in schools as well supporting education specialists.
Visit www.schoolsdevelopmentgroup.org for more information.
The English Tracker is a culmination of two years work. The working party comprised of
Administrators, Classroom Teachers and Literacy Specialists from schools across the state
including Huntingdale Primary School, Highgate Primary School, O’Connor Primary School,
Southern River High School, Duncraig Senior High School, Como Senior High School as
well as Consultants from the Department of Education (WA).

Rationale and Aims
The purpose of The English Tracker is to provide teachers with a resource that assists with
planning, teaching and assessment of the English contained in the Australian Curriculum
(v7.0). It contains the Content Descriptions taken directly from ACARA documents. Each
Content Description has been linked to checkpoints that have been carefully written as
student behaviours that are observable and recordable.
The English Tracker has the facility to monitor student progress through the content and their
assigned grades for each semester. It also has the capacity for teachers to write brief
anecdotal notes about their students. An important function of The English Tracker is to be a
resource that collects comprehensive data on literacy development for a whole school, year
level, class and individual students. It is possible to roll the data over from year to year, thus
providing a valuable means of effective communication between the admin team and
teachers within a school.

Modes and Sub-Strands:
The English Curriculum can be organised into:
•Modes:
пЃ¶ Listening & Speaking
пЃ¶ Reading & Viewing
пЃ¶ Writing
• Sub Strands:
пЃ¶ Language
пЃ¶ Literature
пЃ¶ Literacy
The English Tracker will allow you to filter to the content into
either modes or sub-strands, or a combination of both.
For example, Reading and Literature …..
The English Tracker : Administrators
The Schools Development Group (2014)

Checkpoints and Teaching Points
There are checkpoints written for each Content Description. These
checkpoints are observable behaviours that can be thought of as
�tickable moments’ in the classroom.
Some of the checkpoints have teaching points that have been written by
experienced Literacy Specialists. These are designed to provide further
clarification of the Content Descriptor and often give examples that the
teacher may encounter. These teaching points will be printed on the Year
Level Overviews and be visible as a �mouse over’ on Student Achievement
reports.

Moderation and Consistency
•
The accuracy of any whole school monitoring system is always dependent upon the
quality and consistency of teacher judgement. Moderation between teachers is
essential if consistency is to be maintained. It is envisaged that the English Tracker
will provide the catalyst for professional conversations around the planning, teaching
and assessment of Australian Curriculum English and can be used as a basis for
collaborative planning and the analysis of whole school strengths and weaknesses
in the teaching of literacy.

A few notes:
•
This program requires you to enable macros on your computer in order to read it.
This is not possible if you have your security settings set too high. The setting
needs to be medium.
•
It is important that schools devise protocols for the effective sharing of files. The
Admin version of the programme should be kept on a secure drive for admin use
only and the teacher files should be kept on a shared drive that is accessible to all
teachers and admin. The teacher files may be copied and updated elsewhere (eg
at home or on personal laptops) ...but it is essential that all changes are re-saved
into the shared drive and not re-named. Admin staff need to take care to only
make updates to teacher files if it is the current file to safeguard against lost data.
•
Always import teacher data before making any changes from the whole school
admin copy. When you export any new teacher feedback files back to shared
drive, this will overwrite any existing teacher feedback files.

Initial set-up of the English Tracker
(Please note: If you also use the Maths Tracker, see slide 14
for alternative instructions )
1. Create a new folder named “The English Tracker “Name of School Date” in a
secure drive that is admin access only. Save the Tracker Template (.xlsm) to this
folder. ( eg The English Tracker Huntingdale Primary School 010714)
2. . Create 2 sub folders in this folder. Name these:
i.
Student Input (This will contain student details in csv files)
ii.
Reports (This will be a holding folder for any reports that are run at
particular times)

Copying student
information from Integris
! Care ….. These files contain personal information about your
students. Ensure they are in a secure drive.
The Tracker only requires the information in columns A – K of the
csv files. You can highlight all columns L onwards and �clear
contents’. This will delete sensitive information such as
addresses, phone numbers and custody information.

You have just created a teacher file for each class and they are saved in the folder
named “English Teacher Feedback Files” that you created in the shared drive during
initial set up.
At this point, go to Save/Quit tab and Close this file. Make sure you select “yes” to
save changes. (It is best not to have the admin version open at the same time as a
teacher file ....as it can be confusing)
Now go to English Teacher Feedback files (in shared drive) ....these are the files that
your teacher can access to view and update their student information. Notice the Form
and date issued information in cells with yellow background ......this colour
differentiates a teacher file from the admin file (it is the only visible difference).
Teacher files and Admin files work in exactly the same way...but Teacher files only
have data for that particular class.

The Schools Development Group (2014)

Import all Teacher (Form) Files in selected folder
The Teachers will now go ahead and update information on their files. At some point in
time, usually at the end of a term or semester, the Administrators will want to collate
the data back into the master copy kept in the secure drive. Make sure the teachers
are aware that you are going to do this so that they have their updated files saved in
the nominated shared drive.
Open the admin version of the programme. Display admin menus.
Click Admin tab and then “Import all Teacher (Form) Files in selected folder”
There will be a message in bottom left hand corner of screen saying “Please wait,
importing teacher feedback data from students achievement data entry
for room ....” The teachers data is now saved into the admin version of the
programme.

Student Groups
The English Tracker v1.1 has the capacity to group students into 8 different groups. Schools have the choice to
label these groups as best suits their context and needs of the students.
As a suggestion, Admin could �pre label’ in 3 or 4 of these groups before exporting the
Tracker to the teachers. For example, “ESL”, �Indigenous”, “Special Needs”etc… This would leave
4 or 5 groups unlabelled and allow teachers to group their students according to working literacy groups
within the classroom. Groups are always flexible ….and students can be in more than one group.
To label groups, Click on
�Tables’ tab and select
�Student Group’ Type in
