2 checks to do now – essential for data submissions
1. Activated Account
Check that your school or college is activated with a myAlps account. If you have a currently activated myAlps account, this will transfer into your new Alps Connect account automatically. If you are unsure please contact the office now on 01484 887 600.
Important – The activation process requires your username and password to be posted to your school or college. If you are not activated by Results Day, your data submission and subsequent analysis will be delayed.
2. Authorised Users
Check who your authorised users are. These are the staff who currently have the access rights to upload data via myAlps. Check they are the correct people and if necessary, update your permissions to ensure the right people have access on Results Day. If you are unsure, please contact the office on 01484 887 600.
Connect Data Submission Quick Steps
1. Create a Cohort
Create your groups of students and import all of their details. This will cover gender, ethnicity, disadvantage and prior achievement. All of these elements will help you access insightful analysis in your reports and Connect Interactive.
2. Add your grades
Used when importing exam results, in-year tracking data and courses for target setting. Here you will tell us what courses your students are doing and what they have achieved.
3. Order reports / Add to Connect
Sending us your data will pair your Cohort and Grades workspace to create a Gradepoint. This can be used for setting targets, analysing data in our PDF reports and insightful analysis in Connect Interactive.
Alps Connect allows you to generate Minimum Expected Grades (MEGs) for both Key Stage 4 and 5 and import them into your MIS. Also, recorded target setting webinars, helping you to get the most from your Alps Connect tool and embed Alps across your school or college are available in our Training Hub.
