SIMS Subjects from NovaT6?
I am working with a (non-UK) school cleaning up / reconfiguring their installation for a new September start with SIMS. Technical support etc remains with their existing contractor who is developing the timetable in NovaT6. My question is really for the purpose of planning remaining onsite work by predicting the scale of any issues.
I will need to set up relevant courses again. Currently we have duplicate subjects available in Course Manager - probably relating to multiple imports of changing timetable configurations in the past. The timetable for the new academic year is clear, uses more intuitive 2 character codes etc but is being worked on completely independently of the school SIMS installation. I am pushing for an imminent import to SIMS of a draft timetable in order to quantify remaining clean-up operations. This will probably result in two scenarios:-
1. New (tidy) subject codes replace existing (messy & multiple) subject codes (significant step forward!!)
2. New subject codes are added to existing multiple subject codes (new codes can be used to create courses but subject list remains of low quaity).
Does anyone have experience of this? Which scenario is more likely? and if it is scenario 2, how can I delete unwanted subjects?
All of this obviously has an impact on remaining work to finalise marksheets & reports by associating with courses, classes etc.
