Qridi as a city-wide solution

From extended pre-primary education to the end of basic education

Qridi is used by all students attending comprehensive schools in many FInnish cities. In some cities, it is also used in extended pre-primary education. Consistent use of Qridi in pre-primary and basic education provides a uniform basis regarding the child’s development and learning for life-long learning.

Uniform assessment culture

With Qridi, it is possible to make the principals and practises of assessment uniform throughout the city. The education provider can support the development of a uniform assessment culture by making Qridi available to all students. Matters agreed on a subject group or annual grade level can be easily implemented into daily life with Qridi.

Curriculum-compliant assessments

Qridi is designed to comply with the curricula valid in Finland with regard to teaching and assessment activities. According to the curriculum, assessments serve a dual purpose: on the one hand, they guide learning and encourage self-assessments (formative) and, on the other hand, they indicate how well a student has accomplished the goals of teaching (summative). With Qridi’s features, students know the goals of learning, can take an active part in setting these goals, know where they are in relation to the goals and can reflect on their own (or their peer’s) skills in relation to the goals. Qridi is particularly suitable for assessment and teaching working skills, attitudes, values and behaviour as specified in the curriculum.

Qridi was originally built as a tool for formative assessment, which is apparent from the tools’ strong emphasis on self-assessments. With Qridi, teachers can give feedback to support learning and support the development of self- and peer assessment skills. Many teachers also use Qridi as a tool for summative assessments as well, e.g. by giving regular teacher assessments, arranging digital tests and instructing their students to document their school work in a learning journal. With Qridi, teachers can perform a variety of assessments that comply with the curriculum. The assessment information is stored securely and available to the student and their guardians.

Transferring the information content of cities into easily accessible digital format

Several cities have:

  • specified annual goals of the curriculum for different subjects
  • defined the assessment targets and criteria for behaviour
  • created information and communications technology skill paths for different grades
  • shared forms for assessment discussions
  • created paths for grade-independent studies related to different subjects
  • produced diverse content through different projects, e.g. indicators of students’ well-being with the Finnish Schools on the Move or Literacy Movement themes, and use the ProKoulu model or CICO activities

With Qridi, it is possible to make shared content available to all students and teachers of the city in an easy way. At the same time, essential information is stored securely in a single location throughout the student’s school path and is available to the teacher, student and their family members.

Knowledge-based management

Qridi is a very data-sensitive system that visualises the accumulated data in a comprehensible way to each age level. In Qridi, teachers, students, principals and school management can perform knowledge-based management of their activities.

We make it possible to transfer Qridi data into the city’s own data pool and visualise it in e.g. Microsoft’s Power BI software at a school/grade/group level. Here are some examples of possible implementations: Monitoring the progress of grade-independent studies and information and communications technology paths, development and current status of ProKoulu/well-being/behaviour data and the status of students’ behaviour in the city. We are happy to listen to the needs of cities!

Promoting shared themes as an assessment partner

We support the development of the schools’ assessment culture by training our experts and planning this training together with the customer. We meet with various working groups of cities regularly to ensure that we promote shared themes and that the development of the software meets the needs of schools.
