  4. On the Report Options page, you can customise the report:
    • This drop-down list is available if you have access to more than one school. Choose All Schools or a single school.

    • Note: The Select Students options are not available if the Select Schools drop-down list is available and you have chosen All Schools in that drop-down list.

      • To choose a single class or all classes, use the drop-down list.

      • To choose specific students by name, click Students. Then, tick the students who need letters on the Select Specific Students page and click Save Selection.

      • To choose multiple classes, click Classes. Then, tick the classes who need letters on the Select Specific Classes page and click Save Selection.

    • Use this to include only those students who meet certain criteria. If you have already set up one or more reporting parameter groups, choose the group you want to use from the drop-down list (choose All Demographics [Default] if you want to include students from all the demographic groups).

      Click Create New or Edit Selected if the group you want is not in the list. Use this to create new groups or edit existing groups based on student enrolment date, ethnicity, gender, language, characteristics and/or year.

    • Use this to decide how to group information on the report. Choices are: Not Grouped, School, Year, Teacher or Class.

      Next, use the Then List drop-down list to decide what you want listed next based on your grouping choice (schools, years, teachers, classes or students).

    • If you do not want a list of the report options you chose to be printed on the report, remove the tick from this box.
