Reports on Achievement and Behaviour are not that accurate.
Check this thread.
Does any one have a report which lists name, form, year group and total achievement points that asks for a year group upon running?
I`ve had a browse through supportnet and cant find one which does what i want.

Check out File 847 on SupportNet, User Posts, File Sharing. This is set up to report on Reg Groups but can easily be edited to produce Year Group, House etc.
It does produce accurate figures, as does the Behaviour Report 848 that I also posted there!
Since posting these you can now use the extra Student Conduct field that is in the Reporting Dictionary (SIMS 7.136), when producing Ach and Beh Reports - though it is still difficult to do this across a date range within an Academic Year.
By the way guys - thanks for the Red Square - that sure looks better than the green one - and just in time for Christmas too!
If you want help with SIMS then you can always give me a shout on SupportNet or directly at school!

The 'controversial' ones seem to carry far more weight than those that I have tried to 'help' in! Still - 'Red' does not really bother me at all!

Maybe it's the case that your reputation precedes you so any constructive help you offer is dismissed as Capita spin by some other members, even though I'm sure it's useful.
If my reputation precedes me then it ought to be very good, because any preceding reputation can only have come from SupportNet, and it is highly regarded there!
Have you also noticed that those very suspicious posts, by relatively 'new' members that were regularly attacking SIMS, have also virtually dried up? Then again, you maybe won't be aware of that problem that this site had, as my campaign against this sort of thread started way before you became a member!
I edited my last post before you quoted it.
You are obviously not aware of the 'campaign'!
And Edugeek can NEVER equal SupportNet. There are some knowledgable SIMS users here but there are very many more on SupportNet and they include many of the former anyway!

I don't think Edugeek wants to equal support net. Surely this forum is more a place to share opinions, debate etc, maybe a few help threads. Supportnet is almost all help for existing SIMS users. You are hardly going to get a discussion about open source going there. They cater for different people, although with some overlap obviously..
Campaign .. no I wasn't aware having only joined at the start of 2010. Are you talking baseless accusations or just opinion, because everyone has one you know and it might not always be the same as yours
Totally 'Baseless accusations' is the answer to your question, often as a first post from a 'new' user!. They seldom appear now!!
And it was your post that first appeared to equate Edugeek with Supportnet! "Perhaps Supportnet != Edugeek though ?" So, obviously, I had to respond.
Sorry I was doing the geeky maths '!=' not equal to
Thanks to the new reporting fields I've got some reports that detail all the behaviour and achievements for yeargroups, houses, and even by person over a defined period.
The problem might be that they are a bit specific to us, however dumping all the information into excel (name, points, achievement, year group filtered by date range) and then using the function sumifs (office 2007/2010) you can do a lot of analysis.
Pm me with an email address if you want to have a look and see if they are useful
I better not Tweet that!
As an ex-Head of Science I am more used to the mathematical symbol ≠ to mean 'not-equal-to'. Far more understandable to us old-timers than some 'geeky' symbol not widely recognised by others! It's also only one symbol rather than the 2 that you have used and so it takes less effort to type it!
