Manually adding marks for Ad Hoc assessments
Stand-alone Ad Hoc assessments
If you've not chosen to link your ad hoc assessment to summative assessment when setting it up, you should use the Ad hoc marksheet to mark your ad hoc assessment.
Go to Students > Assessments > Summative Tracking > Mark Entry > Ad Hoc Marksheet.
Use the filters at the top of the page to select the assessment and other parameters including date and student groups.
To input marks, simply click on the individual cells and you will have the option to choose the type of mark from the drop-down menu or input the mark manually.
Ad Hoc assessments linked to a Summative assessment
If you've linked your ad hoc assessment to summative assessment when setting it up, you can use the summative marksheet to add your ad hoc assessment marks.
Go to Students > Assessments > Summative Tracking > Mark Entry > Marksheet.
Add marks in bulk for multiple Ad-Hoc assessments linked to a course.
- Admins - Go to School > Programmes > Courses to select the class, then go to Assessment > Full Marksheet from the left-hand menu.
- Teachers - Go to My Items > My Classes and select Full Marksheet for the class.
You can then use the bulk actions to mark student's Ad-Hoc assessments.
Using the import spreadsheet
You can use our import spreadsheet to import the Ad Hoc assessment mark for any assessment period. Download and complete the import spreadsheet for the assessment(s), then upload it into Arbor. The spreadsheets are available for the assessments you have already created within Arbor.
Please note: This process will override any existing marks already input into your Assessment. Any fields left blank in your spreadsheet will not override any marks in Arbor.
Go to Students > Assessments > Summative Tracking > Mark Entry > Import from the left-hand menu. Click the green Download Import Spreadsheet button to select the ad hocs option.
Fill in the slide over with the assessment information then click Download import spreadsheet.
Once you have downloaded the spreadsheet, fill in marks for each student as appropriate.
Please note that this spreadsheet is custom made for the import you are doing and that you cannot change the academic year, students or assessment in this sheet. If you want to import for a different academic year, assessment or set of students, you must create a new import spreadsheet.
Please note: Please do not change the student names or IDs, and do not rearrange any column or change column letters or row numbers. If you do, we cannot guarantee that the right marks will be imported for the right students.
Once you have filled in the sheet, you can import it on the same page by clicking the grey Upload Import Spreadsheet button.
You can choose your file to upload, then click Upload.
On the next page, you can see the information about the import. Double-check the information you are about to import.
Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click Delete import if any data is incorrect, or click Import data to import the assessment marks.
