The 4Matrix Fusion BETA launched in January 2020 with 27 Trusts. If your Trust is interested in trialing Fusion, please visit www.4matrix.com/trustregister.
4Matrix Fusion brings the power of 4Matrix to Multi-Academy Trusts and groups of schools. It has been in development for over a year and it allows Trust Leaders and senior school staff to investigate data from all schools across a Multi-Academy Trusts or group. It's web-based and is supported by most major web-browsers and mobile devices, including iPads.
4Matrix Fusion is a separate system to 4Matrix Desktop and 4Matrix Infinity but it is designed to work alongside these products. The BETA version will be hosted centrally by 4Matrix, unless requested otherwise.
The 4Matrix Fusion Administrator will create series in Fusion for schools to manually upload their anonymised data into. This approach allows the individual schools in the group to maintain control of their own data, so that they can make an informed decision as to which of their own series is the most accurate dataset to be uploaded into the Fusion series. There will be options to set a 'data upload window' on the Fusion series, which can be communicated to the schools for reference.
The first release of 4Matrix Fusion includes tools for key stage 4, focusing on headline performance measures, including Progress 8, EBacc, and English and Maths Thresholds. There are several displays that allow for different filtering and comparison techniques. Additional tools will shortly include subject and class analysis, plus attendance monitoring.
4Matrix Fusion is set to be the most powerful collaborative data tool on the market for secondary schools and we will work closely with our Trust partners throughout 2020 to ensure that we continue to meet our client's requirements. Our development plan already includes scope for further subject-level analysis, key stage 3 and key stage 5 tools, and potentially support for key stage 2 reporting.
4Matrix Fusion will support key stage 4 key performance indicators for the 2017/18 Y11 cohort and beyond.
