You may wish to delete an assessment. There are a few reasons for wanting to do so:
- It was set up incorrectly (wrong grade sets etc) - remove it from both the Annual Policy and the Assessment Framework
- You wish to change the assessment periods - just remove it from the Annual Policy, but not from the Assessment Framework
Removing an assessment from the Annual Policy
If you won't be running an assessment this year, you can remove the assessment from your Annual Policy. This method works for All Assessments - Curriculum, Summative, Progress 8 and Ad-Hoc assessments.
Please note that this will delete all baselines, targets and grade marks added to the assessment this academic year.
If you remove the curriculum assessment from your annual policy, this will also remove all baselines, targets and marks from the summative assessment, so there will be blank marksheets.
- To prevent this from happening, you must first Unlink the assessments before removing the curriculum assessment from your Annual Policy. To unlink, go to Students > Assessments > Assessment Framework > Assessment Catalogue and select the assessment. Scroll to the bottom of the page and select the Summative linked assessment to remove the link.
- We also recommend exporting marks first if you are planning to delete any assessments.
You can then remove the curriculum assessment following the instructions below.
Top Tip: Removing the summative assessment would not remove the curriculum assessment.
Ad Hoc assessments
If you have set up the ad hoc assessment as One mark per course, this will have created one ad hoc linked to each subject.
When deleting these ad hocs, please note that removing the ad hoc from your Annual Policy for one subject will remove all instances across all marksheets for all subjects. This means all the marks will be deleted and the ad hoc will no longer show on marksheets.
If you add the ad hoc to your Annual Policy again, the marks will not return and will need to be filled in. We recommend exporting marks first if you are planning to delete any assessments.
You can remove ad hoc assessments following the instructions below.
Remove from the Annual Policy
To remove an assessment from your policy, go to Students > Assessments > Annual Policy > Manage Assessments. Select the assessment to delete and you will be taken to the Assessment Overview.
Click the red Remove From Policy button. Please note, it can take some time to process the deletion.
The assessment will then be removed from your Annual Policy - you can see this on the Manage Assessments page.
Please note that while this is happening, you won't be able to re-add the assessment to your policy as it won't show as an option. Please wait until it has been removed to try adding it again.
Remove from the Assessment Framework
To completely delete an assessment, you must remove it from your Annual policy (shown above) and then also remove it from your Assessment Framework. This method works for All Assessments - Curriculum, Summative, Progress 8 and Ad-Hoc assessments.
Please note that this will delete all baselines, targets and grade marks added to the assessment this academic year, and all marks added to the assessment in previous academic years, so you can no longer use the marks for comparative analysis.
To remove an assessment from your framework, go to Students > Assessments > Assessment Framework > Assessment Catalogue. Select the assessment to delete and you will be taken to the Assessment Overview. Click the red Delete Assessment button.
Please note, it can take some time to process the deletion.
Can I delete multiple assessments in bulk?
Assessments can only be deleted and/or removed one by one.
If you have made a mistake and you need to remove the mark sheet but it contains marks, we recommend that you export the marks beforehand, as deleted marks cannot be recovered.
Export any marks that you have already input this year from the Students > Assessments > Summative Tracking > Export page so so they are not lost. Select one of the menu options on the left-hand side.
- Use the All Student Marks page if you are a small school such as a primary.
- Use the Bulk Export Student Marks page if you are a large school such as a secondary. We recommend this option for schools with large data tables to avoid having to wait a long time for the data to load.
Why are marks missing?
If you have removed an Assessment from the Annual Policy, this will remove all baselines, targets and marks for the whole academic year.
Re-adding the Assessment to your Annual Policy will not bring back these marks.
We cannot recover a deleted assessment marks. You will need to add them again.
Can a deleted assessments be recovered?
No, we cannot recover a deleted assessment. That's why we recommend exporting marks first (shown above) if you are planning to delete any assessments.
Any assessments that have been deleted by mistake will need to be set up again.
Can I delete a Not Set up assessment?
If you didn't finish setting up an assessment, it'll appear in the Not Setup tab in Students > Assessment > Assessment Framework > Assessment Catalogue.
To delete these, you'll need to finish setting up the assessment. This will then enable you to delete it by following the instructions above.
