    Extraction of Examination data and pupil records from CMIS

    Is there a way to get data out of CMIS reliably, by a method that is reproducible across different schools, and ideally remotely, so that the data can be reused without having to clean it to remove any school-defined terms like non-standard subject names or grade references.

    Re: Extraction of Examination data and pupil records from CM

    Your post makes no sense and is misleading.

    We are able to extract data about external and internal exams and link all that data to a teaching group using the correct Exam Base data and our internal subject name. In fact we can even extract the data by post code, gender, ethnicity, etc, etc,etc

    We regularly upload all sorts of data to our LEA who use SIMS, and have no issues with data we send to DFES/Exam Boards.

    Can you remind me what the point of the post was? Was it that your application can not interface with CMIS, or are you implying there is a wider issue with CMIS data exchanges/interfaces?

    Indeed, the post doesnt make sense at all. One of the plus points in CMIS is that schools can set-up any sort of internal assessment system which may be required, perhaps to a SIMS user the data could look confusing if you dont know where to find the right data.

    All external and statutory examinations data is held as required and can be imported and exported using different methods.

    Could this just be an excuse to advertise a product?

    If you look at MikeBostocks posting history you'll find his previous posts cover the same ground.

    So basically, your looking for a universal way to get data out various differing versions and configurations of CMIS into a generic format that keeps the basic data you want, but drops anything else?

    Indeed - CMIS is a customisable system - thats why schools buy it over other systems available !

    The statutory and external data is in a standard format and easily available to export. Schools can set-up internal assessments in any format to meet their own requirements.

    You will need to be far more specific about the data you are trying to get at to get a more detailed answer Im afraid.

    Yes, SIF may indeed help with extracting the data you require - but only if it is built into the SIF assessment specifications. Currently work on specifing the assessment model for SIF is on-going, however unless schools all use the same assessment models I dont see how all but statutory and external data can be transferred between ALL schools...
