									                                             Importing QCA Optional SATs Analysis Grids

QCA Optional SATs
Nottingham City has created a number of Optional SATs Analysis grids which are
available to download from the website and be imported for use in Performance

We would recommend their use for those schools that have attended the
Performance Analysis training at Sandfield during this Summer term. This course
content will ensure the user is familiar with the module and has some knowledge of
how these grids can be further adapted for their use within the school.

In addition these grids will only work for those schools that have recorded their
optional SATs results in Assessment Manager using the Capita supplied templates
as described in the End of Keystage Instructions.

grid. This grid can be cloned and by using the Result Filter button other QCA
optional SATs aspects can be selected.
