How teachers get to the summative assessment marksheet to add marks (plus troubleshooting access issues)


Go to My items > My classes. On the My Classes page, you will see all your classes and the linked assessments that have been created in Arbor. You can see any courses, registration forms or teaching groups you've been linked to. 

Registration Forms (for primaries)

For Primary schools, it's likely you'll only have Registration Forms as your classes.




When you click Full Marksheet, you'll be able to see a marksheet with all Summative assessments linked to the Registration Form. 



When you click the All Assessments option, if you have multiple assessments linked to the registration form you can select a specific Summative assessment marksheet or Curriculum assessment markbook to access from here.



Courses (for secondaries)

For Secondary schools, you'll likely have courses as your classes.




For courses, it's likely there will only be one assessment linked to each course, so there will only be one assessment showing in the marksheet when you click Full Marksheet.



When you click the All Assessments option, if you have multiple assessments linked to the course you can select a specific assessment marksheet to access from here.



Teaching groups

It's unlikely you'll be assigned a Teaching Group as one of your classes. If you have been, you'll see you're only able to select All Assessments, and chose a Summative Marksheet.





Troubleshooting - Why can the teacher not input assessment marks?

Still struggling to access your assessments? Contact your school admin and get them to try the troubleshooting tips below.

Step 1 - Check the teacher is linked to the class

Your teachers should be able to access any of their classes' marksheets by going to My Items > My Classes and clicking the assessment.



If your teachers can’t see their registration forms or classes on this page, they may not have been set as the Academic Lead or Form Tutor. 



To add them, find the class or registration form using the search box, then click +Add to assign them to the form or class.



You'll also need to complete the above actions if the staff member does not have the permission to edit marks in the marksheet.


Step 2 - Check the assessment is linked to the class

On the My Items > My Classes page, your teachers should be able to click All Assessments to choose which marksheet to view. If your teachers can’t see any assessments, the assessment may not have been linked to the class or registration form. 



To link them, go to Students > Assessment > Annual Policy > Manage Assessments and click on the relevant assessment. 

In the Linked Courses section, you’ll need to link the assessment to the top-level course. For primaries, this will likely be the year group, and for secondaries, the subject. 


Step 3 - Check the marksheet is unlocked

If your teachers can’t input marks to the current assessment period, it may be because the marksheet has been ‘locked’. 

To unlock the marksheet, go to Students > Assessments > Summative Tracking > Mark Entry > Marksheets. Set the filters to choose the assessment to manage, then click the box next to the blue pencil icon to select the whole class.


Select Set/Unset Approved to unlock the marksheet for the selected students if more data needs to be input. You can also use this to lock the marksheet once all the marks have been input to prevent further changes.
