Assessment Managers can use this guide to configure Fine Assessment within Tracking Templates to then be visible in the Assessment Sheets for the teachers to input Student data.

Fine Assessment : This is used when for example: a Year 11 Autumn 1 English Current Grade is being collected for each student, this Current Grade is made up of the ‘best grade’ for 3 pieces of homework that the students have completed in the Autumn 1 Term

In the Template Details panel give the Tracking Template a Name, Notes, choose the Year Group and in this example the Subject is English.

Note: you can choose more than one Subject if the parameters for the Fine Assessment are the same i.e. if English & Maths are using 3 pieces of work to make up the ‘best grade’ in the Autumn 1 Current Grade collection.

Fine Assessment Settings

Now from the Auto-calculate drop down we are going to choose Best of All Assessments in this example.

Next we are going to choose 3 from the Fine Assessment Count and then define the Ref and Tooltip in the 3 lines below. This is because the Current Grade being collected is going to be made up of the Best of All Assessments for 3 pieces of Homework completed by the Students in the Autumn 1 data collection.

In this example the Max Mark is set to 9. Note the Current Grade Assessment Type in this example has a 9-1 Grade Set so ensure the Max Mark doesn’t exceed 9 in this example.

Click Save.

Note: Enable Most Right Settings.

This is used in the example 4 units are being taken however, we only want the Simple Average for 3 of the Units

Auto Calculate: Simple Average

Active: Selected

Fine Assessment Count: 4 i.e. Unit 1, 2 ,3 and 4.

Enable Most Right: set to 3 then the Simple Average only takes into account Unit 2,Unit 3 & Unit 4.

Click Save.
