remote assessments

A straightforward alternative to face-to-face assessments throughout the pandemic

  • Our remote assessments are identical to our face-to-face assessments but they take place over video conference call (e.g. Microsoft Teams/ Zoom) using digital resources and screen share. 
  • The child accesses the remote assessment from a quiet room in their school. They will need a computer or laptop with high quality video and audio, and good internet speed. A member of staff will need to be available to support the process. 
  • The EP accesses the remote assessment from our Colchester assessment room. We send the SENCo the resources the child will require for the assessment via courier in a sealed envelope. The envelope is opened on screen, at the start of the assessment. At the end of the assessment, the resources are sealed in the envelope provided, and collected by the courier at an agreed time. 
  • The video conference call is recorded for safeguarding purposes. 
  • As with our face-to-face assessments, online questionnaires are used to gather background information. A feedback meeting (via phone or video conference call) is offered to the SENCo to discuss the results and plan next steps. A written report is sent to the SENCo within three weeks of the assessment.
