How do I analyse my aggregate data on the Group MIS?

This article will go through a few key places where you can view aggregate analysis for attendance, behaviour and assessment. To report more in-depth, you can use the Custom Report Writer.

How do the filters work?

On each main analysis page, you can view the figures across your whole Group MIS, or for just the schools you are associated with.

To look at specific schools or clusters, add them to the filter, then click Apply filter.

My Homepage

On your homepage, you will see your group average calculation for each headline measure. By default each measure will display with a national average comparison - this can be amended to give a comparison to the Outstanding school average.

You are able to click on any measure and view more detail for each. This includes downloadable tables for each school and each demographic group's performance against the measure. For more information on what is shown, see the sections below.

Analytics

You can access a variety of Key Performance Indicators that show data from all parts of your Group MIS by clicking the Analytics drop-down menu and selecting Group Context, Attendance, Behaviour, Attainment & Progress, or Staff/HR.

You can see further details of the Staff HR area here.

In these pages, you will see a reminder if not all of your schools have shared their data with you. It is important to set up your data sharing agreements to ensure the data shown in your infographics is an accurate representation of all your schools.

Attendance

Drill down into your attendance data all the way from MAT-wide averages, through your data split by school or demographic, all the way down to individual pupils.

Identify which students are affecting your averages and view their attendance for today, then jump directly to their student profile on the School site (you'll need to have permission to log into a school site).

Drilling down into Attendance on the Group MIS

At any level, you can use the Comparison tab to view totals for each group.
