Online Reporting to Parents Report Viewer
Filed under: Online Reporting, SharePoint, Twynham School
To finish the series I have been running on our work to meet the 2010 agenda for Online Reporting to Parents I wanted to show you what we have done with reports. These are perhaps the most informative piece of feedback parents receive in the year but the traditional delivery method can creates a number of problems. How many of the reports never make it home? The only way to get anywhere near 100% of reports to parents is post them out (far too expensive) or reply slips which take up hundreds of hours of admin time in a school. The other issue is how well read are the reports and how are they stored? For all of these issues having reports available online anytime anywhere with a secure login makes a lot of sense.
The image above shows the web part interface when a parent logs in to the Parent Gateway. A parent can click on any of the years to see reports across the whole time the student is present at school. Now that we have seen the 5 major web parts we have produced it is worth seeing them all together in context. Our parents and students can access the ‘My Child’ or ‘My Progress’ in one click and the view they see is as follows.
All of our Web Parts work on both CMIS and Capita SIMS. If you are interested in using the Web Parts on your SharePoint site then you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
