HeadteacherChat’s Review of: 2Simple Evidence Me
Hello! My name is Jonathan Coy, and I am CEO of HeadteacherChat™. I am delighted to have been given access to the 2Simple’s Evidence Me, to see what they have on offer to support schools, and I thought you would be interested to know what I discovered.
Read the full review below....
What is Evidence Me?
Evidence Me is a mobile app and website that allows schools to capture pupil’s learning, monitor their progress, and share reports to senior leaders and parents and carers.
In a nutshell, it’s an on the go, mobile based observation and assessment platform, helping to reduce teacher workload, and to give teachers, leaders and parents/carers the information they need.

Evidence Me enables school staff to carry out assessments quickly and easily. It even has key words linked to the curriculum, allowing you to connect the assessment piece up with the focus area of the curriculum.
The app is set up in such a way that not only can you tag your learning goals and next steps, but objectives for your observations can be provided automatically, which is a fantastic feature.
Staff can even tag the same objective to several children at once.
This is an excellent formative to summative 'documenting of learning' tool which allows staff to gain a better understanding of children's thinking, while also assisting teachers in understanding and supporting learning processes.
User friendly App and website:
Staff are able to capture learning events in real time while also giving real-time evidence, allowing you to increase the quality and consistency of formative assessment.
Suitable for a range of frameworks, including Birth to 5 Matters, Development Matters:
Childminders, EYFS teachers, and the whole school can get involved.
You can take snapshots of learning as it happens, wherever that may be, using the camera on your phone or tablet, and add up to 10 photos or videos to each observation.
It even generates reports:
With one click of a button, all the assessment information you need is generated into an easy to follow report for you to analyse and share with senior leaders and Governors.
Staff can quickly track a group, cohort, or individual, input baseline data, and generate curriculum coverage reports with a single click.
Parents and Carers get information too:
There is a dedicated parent app allowing staff to instantly share learning and assessment snapshots, keeping parents informed and up to date with how their child is getting on.
‘At present, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 are using Evidence Me, and it has really helped us. Evidence Me is so well designed that it has allowed us to really monitor the coverage of our curriculum areas and to also assess children’s attainment in each of the curriculum areas.’ Primary Headteacher
2Simple Evidence Me has the HeadteacherChat™ Stamp of Approval because:
'If you're looking for a well-designed real time assessment solution that can record learning and progress data, then we highly recommend 2 Simple’s Evidence Me.'
