Exporting your examination results for analysis outside of Arbor

Exporting to 4Matrix

4Matrix have a built-in extractor to pull data from Arbor. Please see the instructions in this guide to set up the sync of Arbor data into 4Matrix: 4Matrix and Arbor integration

  • By default this will pull all exam results from Arbor into 4matrix, regardless of embargo. You can then manage embargo settings in 4matrix to ensure data is only shared when required.
  • Alternatively if you want the Arbor embargo to be applied, you can also use the same pages as outlined for SISRA and ALPS to export the data, for import into 4Matrix.

Be sure to double-check that the total number of entries is the same in Arbor and 4Matrix after carrying out an MIS extract. If they don't match (such as if BTEC subjects/grades are missed), you can either:

  • follow the same guidance as below to export grades from Arbor to other performance data tools
  • add the grades manually into 4Matrix via their Edit Results tool. Please contact 4Matrix directly if you require any support with this process.

Exporting to SISRA

Before exporting to SISRA

If your school hasn’t yet used SISRA with Arbor, you’ll first need to export your student data into SISRA by following the instructions in this article.


To export your results to SISRA or other software, go to Results Administration > By Subject to get a subject overview by series.

Top Tip: This page only shows results for the Award, not results for individual learning units. To see Learning Unit results, please use the Raw Results page (detailed below).



Change the filter to adjust the date range (for example, to export results for resits from the year before) and select the students you would like to see results for.

Click the Download button in the top right and select Excel. Additional fields are in the downloaded file that are not displayed on-screen for brevity. These include identity and demographic fields that may be used in other analysis software.

The excel file will then download to your computer. You’ll need to get in touch with SISRA or take a look at their resources for what to do then with the file.

Raw results for exporting to ALPS connect

Go to Results > Raw Results to view the raw results for all your students or qualifications, which you can export to ALPS connect.



All results for a specific qualification

To see all student results for a specific qualification, broken down by results for each award and unit within the qualification, go to the Per Qualification page. This will help you to see which results are strongest and weakest for different units.



You must first set filters for the awarding organisation, qualification category (EDI/Non-EDI), qualification name, and the year group of students you want to analyse.

Once you have applied your filters, you can view the results or download to Excel.
