I'm an independent SIMS consultant working with primarily with SIMS Assessment Manager for nearly 10 years. I spend lots of time in different schools, talking about the best ways to use SIMS and creating effective assessment systems. I run a popular assessment manager blog full of tips and trick for data managers in schools. I also supply an off-the-shelf assessment system.
