13 Jan 2021: Evidence Me gets built-in Antivirus
Evidence Me security is always our primary concern. With that in mind we are delighted to announce that our apps and website are now fully integrated with the Microsoft Defender Antivirus system.
All uploaded files shared between home and school are automatically checked for viruses and malware. Any problems are automatically dealt with without your intervention, so you can be assured of completely safety.

11 Oct 2020: New “Assessment CSV” Report
Another really useful report is available today. It is a “CSV” file that you can use in many flexible ways to help you with assessment reporting.
Here’s how to read the Assessments:
- The number (1-8) is the assessment level. For EYFS: 1 = 0 – 11 months ; 2 = 8 – 20 months; 3 = 16 – 26 months; ; 4 = 22 – 36 months; 5 = 30 – 50 months; 6 = 40 – 60 months; 7 = ELGs; 8 = Exc
- The text (Em/Dev/Exc) is the judgement within that level
This standardisation of the output lets you quickly and easily use this CSV data in any assessment reporting strategy that you have in your school.
Do you have any other ideas for our assessment? Please let us know by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
17 Sep 2020: New “Parent Engagement” Report
A brand new report is available from today. It shows a summary of all contact made with parents over a time period for a class. It’s an excellent way of measuring and proving parental engagement. It shows:
- The total observations shared with each parent over a time period.
- The responses that parents sent back.
- Postcards of activities that parents have done at home and submitted to Evidence Me.
Look out for this report on the reports page:

9 September: Add Documents and Links
The last few months have been extremely challenging for all of us, especially when we need to send work home for learners.
Earlier this year we implemented the fantastic new Documents And Links feature to help with this. Now you can add web links and large document files to any of your observations. These can be easily downloaded by learners and parents at home.
Learners and parents can upload documents too! Find out everything about this feature here.
13 July 2020: End of year admin just got a whole lot easier!
We are delighted to announce that today’s new release combines a number of fantastic new features to enable you to quickly and easily manage your end-of-year processing.
1. Copy Classes
You can quickly copy an entire class and all of its groups. This is a really simple way to start a new class for a new year.
2. Archive Classes
If you want to keep track of a group of learners, but they are not actually a teaching group any longer, then use the new archive feature. You will find it on the class edit page. Archived classes will be shown on the archived tab. Archived classes will no longer be visible in the mobile app, but they will be available for reporting.
3. The “All learners” Filter
This allows you to see and search through all learners in your school very quickly. Very handy for checking if the learner is hiding in a class or group that they shouldn’t be!
4. Drag & drop classes to re-order them
You can now specify the order of your classes to make them more easily selectable in filters and in the mobile app.
13 July 2020: New Fast Track features in Inspection Coach and Improvement Hub!
