    Dynamic Discover Group

    Hi,

    With an Ofsted inspection looming large I'm trying to make sure we have access as quickly and easily as possible to all the data we might need so...

    In Discover there is the very useful Pupil Premium indicator, however is it possible to have a NON pupil premium indicator? I considered making a normal user defined group and adding the pupils but the sheer number of children and the fact that the information changes regularly makes this impractical. It's very easy to create a report to give me the children where pupil premium is false, but how do I then get that in to Discover?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Create a dynamic group from a Venn with PP dropped onto the whole school. The non-PP group can be made into a dynamic group.

    Phil, I'm testing this myself at the moment, but I don't see "Whole School" as an available graph.

    I can do it by gender breakdown, which would give me two dynamic groups, non-pp boys and non-pp girls, but that wouldn't completely cover it.

    am I missing something?

    Agreed that non-PP would be a useful flag.

    So I've created the Non PP group which seems to be populating just fine, however, how do I then use that as a filter against other graphs?

    For example we have an assessment graph showing Y6 progress from Y4 to present, I want to be able to then place both the PP and non PP pupils against it. Is that possible?

    You can save the graph and then drop the non-pp onto any other graph.

    I've discussed the non-pp issue with the team this morning. For spring we are going to include a whole school graph so it is easy to create any opposite graph i.e. non-pp or non-EAL etc. In summer dynamic groups can be used directly within Discover.
