    KS3 Import data (private school)

    As we don't use PLASC I need to make a CSV to in Sims reports so RM can convert it.


    Anyone done it successfully.? The fields you need to chose don't seem to tally with fields in SIMS.

    there is a plasc converter tool on the installation cdrom under Tools>plasc utility which will convert your .csv file to plasc. Page 17 of the Pupil and Test Management Guide will tell you which fields you need. You'll also need the SEN field - check this, as ours wasn't filled in correctly. anyone who needed SEN had a code, but those who didn't were left blank, they should have had 'N'. The guide says that ILA can be left blank, it can't. we were told by RM to put in a median value of 5 as this can be changed later. when the file was first converted and imported an extra 2 blank columns appeared before the ILA column pushing the ILA data into the wrong column. we opened the file in excel, added 2 blank columns, converted and imported again and it work. hope this helps.

    Manged it now.

    For some reason the ethnic code didn't convert and the prefered language didn't either so I had to redo them in excel.

    They are all in now so all I have to do now is teach the bloody class how to use it as no one wants to do it.
