Version 0.1 School Census 2014 Secondary School Application
The default Census Date is the 2nd October, i.e. the first Thursday in October.
It’s a good idea to provide a unique name, as we might want to provide several files before we are ready to Authorise
As requested by customers, we have made it possible for last year’s return to be ignored for allocating Planned End Dates and for exam results to be ignored for allocating QAN/Discount Codes. For this demonstration will we accept the default position where last year’s return and exam results are taken into account
We haven’t updated the Top-up Funding information, so we click Edit to open this functionality
In this case we have provided facilities for copying the information from what was entered for the Summer Census
Once we have added the pupils as necessary we click Update to save and OK to return to the Census application
I this case we don’t need to add any more students, but if we did the procedure is very similar to Top up Funding
The most visible change to the table from last year is the addition of the Core Aim column
It is quite possible to have different Core Aim for 2013/14 than for 2014/15
However, there is also a big change behind the scenes, where calculation of the best result has been complicated by reallocation of Discount Codes by Awarding Organisations but not by QWS.
By default the table is locked against data entry, as it is better to provide Learning Aim information as stored for Course Management. However, there are situations where it is reasonable to unlock the table, so information can be modified to fully reflect the facts
Bulk entry facilities are available for the date columns, which we can illustrate here by updating a group of P End Dates
We start by getting the P End Date ordered on those dates by clicking in its column header
Although Course Management only allows one Core Aim per student per academic year, there are certain unusual circumstances where more than one Core Aim is allowed. The additional Core Aims can be entered directly into this panel
Learning Aim records can also be created in their entirety by use of the Add button
