Connect Interactive Features Included In Previous Releases
You can now use multiple comparison categories to create groups in your subject, teaching set and student analysis, including any custom groups you have added. You will be able to create several of these comparison groups to view on one screen. For detailed information on how to use this new feature, see our ‘Custom Comparison Groups’ article on the Knowledge Base.
The fine grade sliders in the Subject / Teaching set overview area are now showing numbers of students as well as the percentage. Now you know exactly how many students your ‘what if’ modelling relates to.
The new custom Gradepoint selector makes it much easier to construct the Gradepoints you want to see in your trends. Visit the Custom Gradepoint article in the Knowledge Base for more information about how this new feature works.
Add your own custom columns to Connect Interactive, for example, SEND or feeder school.
A powerful tool to allow you to quickly identify subjects where the accuracy of predicting might be a cause for concern, to enable you to set informed priorities going forward.
Your subject overview area now has a tick box to enable you to view a summary of all your teaching sets. You can expand the subject table for your exam or monitoring gradepoint to view the breakdown of grades for your teaching sets.
You will be able to create an excel file or a PDF report of all subject page data including the option of your teaching set pages with one button. This means you can quickly generate a summary report for discussion at SLT, governors and subject leader meetings. You will have the option of printing this PDF report with and without student names, depending on its purpose.
You will be able to export a PDF of your subject page showing your selected examination or monitoring points. This will give you an overview of monitoring trends across a series of gradepoints to use as part of subject review processes. It will also give you a breakdown of your key performance groups and teaching sets.
For gradepoints added to Connect Data from July 2019, you will be able to apply a Year Group filter from various places in Connect Interactive. This will help you to filter out gradepoints for a particular cohort when selecting trends throughout the system.
You will now be able to export your student performance overview with more export options than ever before. Various export options will include instructions, a summary page, report format output, marksheet and grid formats and personalised targets. You will also be able to filter by Year Group for those Gradepoints added via Connect Data. This filter will be available for all areas of Connect Interactive.
We have a host of live and recorded webinars that are accessible via our Training Hub. With in-depth tutorials, demos and best practise guides, our webinars are here to help you get the most out of your analysis.
