What is 4Matrix?
4Matrix is a high-impact, affordable, performance data system designed for data-confident, self-evaluating secondary schools to demonstrate Outstanding Leadership.
4Matrix is a Power Tool which processes rich data directly from all major MIS in minutes, or you can easily copy and paste from spreadsheets. It is not just another data processing service where you send your results away to be processed into graphs.
4Matrix is a powerful, SQL database-driven, networked application that can be used across a school by all teachers. You can import any number of data series into 4Matrix, including exam results, estimated grades or target grades.
Teachers can use 4Matrix to investigate the effectiveness of teaching and learning - without needing to be statisticians. 4Matrix turns low level data into the language of school improvement.
4Matrix has already helped many schools gain an Outstanding judgement for leadership.
See what Ofsted said about leadership in these three example schools in this document.
Why does our school need it?
If you wish to do much more with the data in your Management Information System (MIS) then this is the most powerful system available to manage the performance of pupil across their subjects.
If you would like your teachers to be knowledge-driven rather than data-driven, then this is the professional system that you will need. 4Matrix supports a unique, knowledge-driven approach to self-evaluation and school improvement.
Why does 4Matrix do?
4Matrix will easily import data from all major MIS or from spreadsheets. 4Matrix goes much further than just producing graphs. It will automatically analyse and produce a range of critical school performance reports in minutes.
4Matrix provides a range of specialised tools to produce automated reports on the performance of every subject and teaching group and the progress of current pupils in years 10 and 11.
It will identify critical intervention groups, and it will forecast next year's headline results to within 2-5%. It will calculate levels of progress and value added for all pupils automatically.
We recently released our acclained Interactive VA target-setting tool as a free update. We will shortly release our new Flight Path tool followed by our KS3 Tracking Tool.
How can 4Matrix help schools support effective teaching?
4Matrix will allow teachers to investigate learning effectiveness across their classes through an action-research approach. Teachers can produce essential reports on the impact of their teaching to support Performance Management and Ofsted inspection preparation. 4Matrix will provide quantitative evidence to support Gap Analysis and the impact of intervention on the performance of selected groups of pupils.
How can 4Matrix support Outstanding school leaders?
Many schools are already using 4Matrix to take greater control over their inspection.
We have created a high-impact training day, based on this system, that has already helped school leaders achieve an Outstanding Leadership grading from Ofsted. Systemic Knowledge-Driven Leadership is a new and proven approach to leadership development in the use of performance data. Click here to download our brochure.
How can our school get started with 4Matrix?
Getting started is simple. Senior school staff can order 4Matrix from the link below and have it up and running the same day. 4Matrix is easily installed on a server in around 15 minutes - or on a stand-alone PC if you wish to immediately see the power of 4Matrix using our demonstration school database. Then use it with your own school data and then wonder how you ever managed without 4Matrix.
4Matrix is very good, and inexpensive for what it does. Don't take our word for it - click this link and see for yourself what headteachers and others say about 4Matrix.
