Looking for AS Tracking?

STEER’s AS Tracking application is now part of a new and expanded modular suite of STEER products.

In order to fulfil our mission to prepare as many young people with the human skills they need to thrive in life as we possibly can, STEER is upgrading and expanding AS Tracking with a suite of applications.  AS Tracking is being replaced over the next 12 months by this new modular suite of applications.  There will also be a new, modern and easy to use interface too, for faster and easier access to assessment data and all the other AS Tracking features.  We believe the new modular approach will be a significant enhancement in terms of choice and flexibility for schools currently using AS Tracking, as well as for schools beginning to use STEER for the first time.  We have planned a careful and phased transition from AS Tracking that will ensure continuity and least disruption for our users, and the STEER consulting team will be leading all our schools through this transition with careful guidance.

STEER’s modular suite is designed to give customers flexible solutions, enhanced student insights and increased ease of use to measure, track and improve whole school self-regulation. Here’s how AS Tracking and the new modular products compare:

FAQs

When is the AS Tracking name being phased out? 

We will be supporting schools to transition from AS Tracking to the new modules by September 2022. Schools who wish to do so can continue using AS Tracking until that point.  Your STEER Education consultant can guide you as you look to begin using the new STEER suite to assess your young people and safeguard their mental health.

Why is there a new STEER user interface?

Our work with schools showed us there was a need to make using AS Tracking easier and faster, as well as make it more attractive in terms of its design.  Teachers in schools are very busy and short on time and need to be able to use STEER more efficiently and effectively.

Our school is currently using AS Tracking: Which of the new modules will we have access to after it has been superseded by the STEER suite?
