What do you use to show student data to parents online?
Just wondering what other schools use to publish student data to parents online?
We run SIMS and the school bought into Scholaris (Based on sharepoint, absolute rubbish). A few people from here went to a nearby school to see it in action before we bought it, unfortunately despite the NM pointing it out constantly the other members of staff didn't get the fact that all of the SIMS data (Attendance, grades etc..) was being provided by SLG and not by Scholaris, so we are in a situation where we are not providing online access to attendance data as well as other SIMS data. We have basic stuff like student contact details, parents can login (if they have permission) and view timetables, teachers etc... but Scholaris is more of a VLE than a reporting system.
TLDR: We have
Student contact details
An assignment management system/VLE
Live attendance/late data
So what does everyone else use?
We are looking at SLG as the most likely solution as it integrates well with Sharepoint, you can take out the attendance webpart and then whack it into any page, so we can put it into our existing Scholaris install.
Seeing another thread on here this morning though mentioning TASC Insight which also seems pretty good. The major downside is that it doesnt integrate with sharepoint AFAIK so we would need to setup a new IIS site to host just this information. In theory we could use a webpage viewer part in SP to bring that data in but it's not ideal.
Just wondering what else is out there? And reviews/comments on SLG and TASC
