Automated next steps

Automated next steps are personal to each student, based on performance in assessments, to target the content that they need to lock in or to extend their knowledge.

Students are moved on only when they are secure in their knowledge of the curriculum, with scaffolded support provided so that they feel confident and motivated to progress.
