    To Tonyyoung - Give us a call on the Helpdesk as the lesson attendance should now be able to get written back into SIMS. Its a recent development and may still have some teething issues but these are being worked through.
    So are you both Chris and John then? I'm easy to confuse unless you are of course a twin!?!

    At Serco Learning we have offered parental access for free as part of our standard MIS price for seven years. Notre Dame High School in Sheffield who were key in working with Becta around the parental access agenda and what the framework should look like have offered parental access through our Facility MIS for some time now. Im happy to discuss this with people if they want to personal message me.

    Insight from tascsoftware is excellent. It is extremely easy to configure, reliable and gives access to:
    • attendence

    • behaviour (+ _ reports cards, detentions etc)

    • assessment data from sims assessment manager as well as exam entries, results and coursework

    • sims linked documents


    And many other feature too numerous to mention. More importantly they are very responsive to suggestions / requests and have superb tech support. They have even supported us in making all this data availiable through out VLE! Definately recommended.

    Serco Rob,

    Just to set the record straight for others not in the area - there are now schools also within Sheffield LA that are also providing Online Reporting via SLG. At least one has been doing so since since last year.

    Thumbs up re Sivadam

    Sivadam,

    Never meant to give that impresson at all - there is a lot of parental access going on everywhere now with us and SIMS and so on. I was simply reffering to that school as an example as I know they were quite involved with Becta around parental reporting. I want to be on here to answer questions, not to score points, but thanks for pointing it out if you thought people might get that impression. Ive had some good PMs though from schools asking about the topic, so Im just helping to answer points where I can.

    Thanks

    Rob

    Sometimes it is more telling what is not said than what is. From your post re. Sheffield, it would have been easy for a reader to think that your system held sway in Sheffield rather than holding a minority position!

    I respectfully disagree. How can referencing one school lead you to think it's a generalisation for the whole city?!

    I suppose it depends on the slant you take and the environment that you are operating in .........

    We could have used Eportal to allow parents access to student data, but used our Moodle system to link to our Facility/Eportal.

    This allows us to filter what information is available from our MIS and also allows parents to see what learners have been doing on the schools Learning Platform.

    See Houghton Kepier Learning Platform | Open Source Schools for more.

    Secondary schools I think need to have this in place by September 2010 and Primary schools by September 2012.
    we do exactly the same. the sims slg. not very nice and takes a long time to setup. but it meets criteria.

    The new SLG Roadmap mentions an overall of design next year, so the look and feel may change for the better.
