It's still all too much.
The 'marksheet complete' box should work, but doesn't as they tick it even if they haven't finished. teachers will never learn (!). plus, it's too much hassle to bother unticking them.
put the onus of this task on the heads of department, that's what they are there for (to oversee their departments!). It's trivial for them to check down each of their marksheets and not only to look for missing grades but get an overall idea of how the department is doing. They can make sure the distribution is not askew, and the teachers are marking correctly. It's up to them to chase missing marks.
Sometimes us techs/admins over engineer the solution and do things we shouldn't just because we can or enjoy the challenge of coming up with a solution. I help with the reporting process less and less now and mostly with technical issues, if grades are missing or things need altering the Deputy Head in charge and the Heads of Department sort that out.
I just looked at Bromcom's TeachersWebFolder and when you are completing marksheets online, you get a nice %Complete box at the end of your list. Very handy, even for the teachers themselves to see how far they've got. :O)
