What do strands look like in a markbook?

As with all markbooks, to enter a mark for one of your strands, you must ensure you have selected a date in the filter that falls within the relevant assessment period you are trying to enter marks for.

In the example below, the parent assessment has been created with half-termly assessment periods. The filter date has been set to Oct 6th. Therefore, the assessment period visible is ‘Autumn 1’, The first half term of the year.

How do strands and assessment periods change throughout the year?

In order to enter a mark for one of your strands, you must ensure you have selected a date in the filters that fall within the relevant assessment period that you are entering marks for.

In the example below, the parent assessment has been created with half-termly assessment periods. The filter date has been set to Jan 30th. Therefore, the assessment period visible is ‘Spring 1’. The third half term of the year.

You’ll notice an additional `Completed Assessment Periods' section of the markbook. This displays the average marks column for the previous assessment periods.

 

Average marks

You will notice that there are two average mark columns in the markbook. The first average is in the 'academic year' section and the second is in the assessment period section.

The average marks do not take into account any ‘blank marks’. Therefore, the average mark only represents the average mark of strands that have been assessed.

Academic year average - This is the total average mark for the parent assessment, taking into account all of the strands in all assessment periods in the academic year.

Assessment period average - This is the total average mark for the specific assessment period. This is the mark that is used to populate the ‘Completed Assessment Period’  column when viewing an assessment period that is during the academic year.
