This course takes you through the process of setting up the KS4 resources, mapping your aspects to the special aspects provided, and running the 'one-button' excel analysis reports and SIMS Discover graphs.
You'll need to know a few basics about aspects, result sets, templates and marksheets but you don't need to be a SIMS Assessment expert. The course will take you through the whole process on a step by step basis.
You'll understand how to extract the data in your school's aspects and transfer them to Capita's aspects. You'll be able to clone the templates provided by Capita and create a full set of termly analysis marksheets. Finally you'll be able to run the analysis reports to provide a deep analysis of your school's key performance indicators.
I'm an independent SIMS consultant working with primarily with SIMS Assessment Manager for nearly 10 years. I spend lots of time in different schools, talking about the best ways to use SIMS and creating effective assessment systems. I run a popular assessment manager blog full of tips and trick for data managers in schools. I also supply an off-the-shelf assessment system.
