    SIMS & Student access

    Is there a simple way to publish target & current grades directly to students?

    We record all this assesment data and retrospectivley produce a report to parents,...well how about a web view to students in real time so that they can view and reflect on their current performance?

    Is there already a solution to this, becuase i can't find one anywhere?

    What you'll be wanting is SIMS Web Parts - how you get that depends largely on who provides your SIMS support, contact them and ask about it

    Same thing, it's "SIMS Learning Gateway with Web Parts", but I prefer to call it Web Parts because Learning Gateway is deceiving IMO

    As pointed out the SIMS webparts are what you are looking for - they can do a lot more than just feeding back student data, but they are not cheap.

    I could be wrong, but I don't think they sell them individually and you will have to buy the whole package. You will also need to be running sharepoint for the webparts to dispplay.

    If you are using moodle, I believe there is something similar but I haven't seen it in action so can't comment on how good it is etc.

    I think Sylv3r is spot on. They don't sell the web part seperately. In fact the Learning Gateway itself is nothing more than a series of web parts that integrate with SIMS. So to answer the OP's question, what they need to to do web based student reporting is the Learning Gateway. Either that or Capita have very recently seriously mis-sold us!

    Sorry tmcd35, I weren't trying to say you were wrong, I just find "Learning Gateway" deceiving, it seems to imply a stand alone product, when in fact it's not, you need a VLE in place to host it

    I think tasc software do a product called Insight (i think) that does it too.. well i've heard it does it now but before christmas it didnt but if it does it would be cheaper then setting up SLG.

    From what the visitors who have come here to see SLG in action say then the demo does not do it full justice!

    That's a shame, as that's what most people see first! I'm shocked that Capita have half-heartedly made a big working advert for one of their products!

    Not really a shame - just that SLG is very good!

    If you're not buying in to an online reporting solution (slg, insight, muffins at school, etc) another way would be to publish assessment individual reports or similar through a vle - that gives the info to students on a platform they already use.
