What are the different summative assessment marksheets?

In Arbor, we have different marksheet layouts depending on where you're accessing the marksheet from. For more detailed information about what the different columns are on the marksheets, take a look at our guidance here: How summative marksheets work

You can also customise the columns that show on your marksheets:

The Academic Unit marksheet

The Academic Unit marksheet is the most useful marksheet in Arbor, with benefits for different roles:

  • Heads of Departments and SLT can have a marksheet unique to what teachers can see, and display nearly every field in a student's record or have excel-like formulas built into it using Custom Marksheets.
  • It's also perfect for teachers who need to enter assessment marks for all their assessments (summative and ad hoc) from one marksheet. You can access multiple summative assessments on one marksheet.

What shows on this marksheet?

It'll show you any columns you've added in Marksheet Settings, or the custom marksheet layout you've applied.

No matter which 'level' you access the course for, it'll show you all students linked in the bottom-level courses below it. So when accessing the marksheet for Year 7, students in Sets 1, 2 and 3 will show in my marksheet.

  • The Full Marksheet page shows all assessment marks for the current term, but you can change the date in the filters to view the whole academic year if needed. You can see an example of this page with a custom marksheet applied below.
  • You can view only the most recent marks - just change the filters to today's date. For example, if you set to the 1st March only, it'll show you marks for Spring term (termly assessments) and Spring term 2 (half-termly assessments).



How to access the Academic Unit marksheet

It can be accessed by teachers by going to your calendar and selecting the class. You can then select Assessments from the left-hand menu.



We don't recommend teachers access the Full Marksheet from My Items > My Classes and select Assessment Full Marksheet because you can't then access the rest of the course information.



It can be accessed by Heads of Departments and SLT by going to School > Programmes > Courses and selecting the level of students you would like to view the assessments for. If you're a Head of Department, you might select Maths, Head of Year might select Year 7 here. 



The Summative Tracking marksheet

The Summative Tracking marksheet is most useful for Administrators who need to enter marks for one assessment period for one specific assessment.

What shows on this marksheet?

It'll show you any columns you've added in Marksheet Settings, but won't display any custom marksheet layouts. On this marksheet, you can see and edit the assessment marks for the current assessment period (determined by the date in the filter), and see marks for the past assessment periods this year.



How to access the Summative Tracking marksheet

It can be accessed by teachers by going to My Items > My Classes and selecting Assessment All Assessments then selecting the assessment.



It can be accessed by Administrators by going to Students > Assessments > Summative Tracking. Either go to Mark Entry > Marksheet and select the assessment in the filters, or select the assessment from the Assessment Dashboard and click Marksheet.

Top Tip: Using the Students in... filter on the assessments Dashboard will filter based on the student group the assessment has been linked to, rather than all students. So, for example, if the assessment has been linked to a course, you'll need to select the course rather than the year group.



You can also get to this marksheet by going to Students > Assessments > Annual Policy > Manage Assessments. Using the ‘+’ icon next to the assessment name, you can expand the assessment and see the type of assessment created.
