- Enables advance preparation to ensure a smooth Results Day submission
- Available for KS4 and KS5 end of year and within-year data submissions
Connect Data is available now for monitoring data submissions.
With Connect Data you will have full control of your own data. It will take you through the steps to help you ensure that your data is correct and accurate before you upload it. You will have instant analysis on the data you upload.
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. Add your Year Groups
Create your Year Groups and import all your student 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 Results
Whether you are importing examination or in-year monitoring results, you can use our wizards to import your data intuitively. Here you will tell us what courses your students are doing and what they have achieved.
3. Publish and Order Reports
Publish your imported data from our Gradepoint management screen and proceed to our report ordering screen. Here you can build a new order as well as check your orders in recent years.
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.
