So how has the @scholarpack assessment area developed? Is there a teacher's mark book they can customise? Can you easily apply formulae or RAGing to data?

We are just concentrating on Primary schools for the foreseeable future and the assessment area has a huge amount of functionality across EYFS, KS1 and KS2. Teachers enter grades (customisable: levels, fine grained levels, APS etc) into their markbooks and marks are instantly colour coded according to the child's target, or NC expected if no target is set. In the reporting section there's a ton of data heavy and graphical features to analyse the data, ranging from dynamic groups (e.g. low attenders on free school meals) to normal cohort average (EAL, SEN etc). For EYFS and development matters, we have a special target based markbook where evidence can be uploaded and portfolios developed. Vikpaw, we would be happy to spend 30 mins on Skype with you if you wanted a run down of how the assessment now looks. Otherwise, see you at BETT!

Just for the record 1000s of UK based schools use SIMS with no server based in their school. We can host it and so can LAs and organisations like SCOMIS (Devon's support unit) who offer services outside their boundary.
As far as I'm concerned that it cloud based.

This actually rings alarm bells. Is your boss aware that having a fallback doesn't stop at the provider's end? You will also require a backup Internet connection routed through two different exchanges to ensure protection against Internet failure (which is far more likely then the provider screwing up). This is nearly always overlooked and scrimped on by management teams to save money then subsequently run into all manner of connection issues down the line.

What about having a look at Bromcom's cloud-based MIS solution which is gradually picking up its market share and is included in the latest IMLS Framework (whereas Advanced Learning has been removed due to legal issues)?

Advanced is not on ILMS because no provision was made in the tender for a product being bought. This is a weakness in my view of the ILMS framework.

A bit off topic but as to IPad access for students we are having general problems in locking down the devices so that they cannot alter settings etc.
