Assessment - Frequent assessment & reporting
Hello... I'm started supporting a secondary school new to SIMS. They issue very frequent reports to parents (monthly, and weekly in some cases).
They have set up marksheets with discrete aspects for each reporting period i.e. similar to english comment 1 wk 1, english comment 2 wk 1.... english comment 1 wk 2, english comment 2 wk 2 etc etc. for 12+ subjects multipled by potentially every school week.
Current setup associates each of these with a result set. This was on advice from Capita but I do not know how well they understood the school systems. We are not in the UK.
This strikes me as very fragmented and does not facilitate analysis of specific issues over time. Question, if we don't use result sets in this way, can I ensure that:
(i) reports for a specific date show a blank rather than the data from the previous assessment date - where a teacher has not input latest data, or it is not available
(ii) historic reports are available where these are requested - e.g. John's report from March 15?
