This is a guide to using OneSchool Reporting Helper. To learn about first-time setup, continue to my next post.At my school, we do our end-of-term reporting through a system called OneSchool. The data entry system is pretty tedious, so I tried to streamline the process. I call the result OneSchool Reporting Helper. What it does is add three sets of extra functions to your data entry system:
- One-click Reporting Category buttons to assign a grade with a single click rather than through drop-down menus
- One-click Archetype buttons so that you can generate a report for "typical" students with a single click
- Auto-comments allow you to add comments to the report based around your reporting choices.
|A blank report with the Reporting Hepper side-by-side|
|A filled report based on the Satisfactory Type. Satisfactory has been configured to be:|
Achievement - 5
Effort - Very Good
Behavior - Very Good
Homework - Satisfactory
Parent Interview - Welcome, but not Requested
Not only are all the reporting fields auto-filled, but the comments that I selected for each reporting value are also auto-filled. This report is now complete. I can press save and next to report on the next student.
If I don't like the comments I've chosen for each reporting category and value I'm free to type into the boxes and change them. I can even add multiple comments by separating them with comments.
If the student is close to an Archetype but not quite, I can click the Archetype, then adjust using the Reporting Category buttons:
|Using the Achievement - 6 button I can change this student's achievement from a 5 to a 6 and adjust the comment as well.|
Finally, the Archetypes might not suit me and my reporting so they can be adjusted by right-clicking on them:
|Right-Click on a button to edit its function.|
