    SIMS Profiles - what happens when staff share a class?

    We are a large Sec. Modern using Profiles for our end of year reporting to parents. All our science groups are shared between two teachers. I have set up the session sucessfully but the classes for science data entry are appearing in both teacher's view. If they both write a report will both show when generated?

    I have told them only one of them needs to write a report for each group but I dont trust them not to fill it in anyway.

    Anyone know what will happen?

    When the profile is generated the comments from both teachers will be placed into the template. This may be what you want to happen, but we have found this often causes repetition or
    contradictory comments. The best solution, as you are suggesting, is for each teacher team to decide which of them is going to do the reports for a particular class and for the other
    teacher to stay well away. If they do not heed your advice, they will end up having to go back and edit at the review stage if the merged comments throw up inconsistencies, so it
    is in their interests to follow your advice.

    You may find it helpful to refer to File 601 - 'Which profile........', on SupportNet, User Posts, File Sharing. It is a document I first prepared a number of years ago for my school and has subsequently been shared with others via SupportNet.
