A branch of China’s Ministry of Education is to adopt teacher assessment software used by UK schools.

China Future School Labs, which is part of the National Institute of Education Sciences, a research branch of China’s Ministry of Education, is to introduce educational software provider Educate’s Standards Tracker to 250,000 schools across China to help improve standards of teaching.

Educate and CFSL have collaborated on adapting Standards Tracker to meet the needs of Chinese schools and the working relationship and exchange of ideas has led to a joint venture between the two parties. Standards Tracker will be part of a suite of software that CFSL is providing to Chinese government schools.

Standards Tracker enables school head-teachers to evaluate the quality of teaching in their school to identify areas for improvement and raise standards. The software is used by schools to provide feedback and track their continuing professional development.  It also generates valuable data for school leaders about the quality of teaching in their schools and helps them identify areas for improvement. 

James de Bass, Educate’s chief executive said, "I am delighted that CFSL has chosen Standards Tracker as its teacher assessment platform and to work with Educate to adapt it for its own needs.  This agreement is an excellent example of how we can create mutually beneficial relationships between our two countries."

Professor Wang Su, director of CFSL, said, "Educate have created an excellent product in Standards Tracker and have not only translated it but have also worked with us so they better understand the requirements of our schools.  We welcome Standards Tracker to our platform and look forward to a long and fruitful working relationship".
