Reporting Parameter Groups

Reporting parameter groups are customised student groups that allow you to focus your reports on students who meet specific criteria. A reporting parameter group can include students enrolled in the school prior to a certain date and/or with a specific ethnicity, gender, language, characteristics and/or year.

When you customise certain MathsFacts in a Flash reports, you can select or create a reporting parameter group to use on the report.

Use Enrol Date to select students who were first enrolled in the selected school prior to a date that you specify.

A student's ethnicity can be specified when (1) the student is added to the program or (2) student's information is edited.

When you create a reporting parameter group, you can select (1) specific ethnicities and/or (2) Not Specified.

If the Ethnicity option is not available, the Filter Reports by Ethnicity capability has been removed. See your school or program administrator if you feel you should have this capability.

A student's gender can be specified when (1) the student is added to the program or (2) the student's information is edited.

When you create a reporting parameter group, you can specify what characteristics you want included in the report.

You can also choose to include students with any of the selected characteristics or students who have all of the selected characteristics.

If the Characteristics option is not available, the Filter Reports by Characteristics capability has been removed. See your school or program administrator if you feel you should have this capability.

Each student's year can be specified when (1) the student is added to the program or (2) the student's information is edited.

When you create a reporting parameter group, you can include students in specific years and/or students who are not in specific years.

Reporting parameter groups do not need to be limited to one category. You can select options from among all of the categories to create a very specific reporting group.

For example, you could set up a group that includes students who are Indian; female; with a primary language of English; and in years 1, 2 or 3.
