    Installation has been the biggest headache here but we have just finished our first run through with year9's today, 64 kids, and all has gone very well with no problems.

    Exactly the same as us. Installation took me a while but all tests today were faultless. Also I didnt notice any effect on the rest of the network when the tests were running.

    We aren't using thin client machines - this seems to be causing people the most problems.

    well to certain degree it is how beta testing work...

    Lets look at fat client version...

    tech pilot - that was very interesting really problems as i understand and really bad
    last year - not to bad quite few issues...
    this year - while still issues no where as near as many last year...
    next year - will be lot of interface issues to solve this year..
    year after - reported sats and in good position

    this is first year of thin client and so will will follow same ort of path.

    What people got to remember it is pilot still and so there will be a lot of issues..

    Re: KS3 ICT SATS Poll

    Not only was this system a complete pile of the stinkiest plop ever, but when I went back and reviewed the results generated (for some reason my ICT team ended up overseeing the actual exams too!), it became apparent that all the students had to do to get a grade was answer the first section of the first question. That alone was worth a level 3. If said student managed to complete the whole of section 1, they got a level 4.

    Being that grades were averaged out amongst the results generated by all students across the country who took the test, this would seem to indicate that everyone had a pants time with it!

    Here's to the 2007 fiasco!!!
