  4. Cluster Reporting Widgets

    by , 12th December 2013 at 09:00 AM (The Progresso Geek)
    I've had to revisit a number of my widgets so that they can also run at cluster level for individual schools within the cluster. A few hours work but it was worth the effort.

    Below is a Progresso Cluster User Dashboard which uses 2 widgets (previously posted on this blog) but the establishment parameter in each widget points at a different school within the cluster. Hey presto! I can see a summary of a number of schools on a single page.

  7. Small Basic Application with Mandatory Profiles

    by , 21st November 2013 at 12:53 PM (Welcome to my blogs)
    This blog is to help people with problems with small basic

    when installing small basic as admin and all is fine you run the program test it out and it works brilliant I thought...NO! I'm wrong, as when you are logged in as a pupil and start to code it runs fine until you save the project and then you get a nice error about access denied.

    I thought that it could be an issue with group policy, so I move the user up and up the directory structure and tested and every ...
  8. Attainment vs National Average

    by , 19th November 2013 at 09:00 AM (The Progresso Geek)
    As an ex-teacher I remember having access to key information at the right time was always challenging. If I've entered the current assessment levels why can't I easily see it without having to navigate through the system?

    We started roll out to the sixth form this September.
