It can be complicated and time consuming to track each pupil’s progress across data. You have attendance records, assessment scores, interventions used, money spent and measurement of performance to consider and compile to create any type of report. You may need all that data or just parts of it to report to parents or comply with regulations and requirements. That is a lot of time spent that could be spent on more important things like lesson planning or actual teaching. Cross referencing, if any is needed, adds more time to the task. When you consider the number of pupils you have, it can all get pretty overwhelming.
