:: SIMS Exams - maintain Performance Indicator data (on school data) ::
Outline
There were significant changes in 2017 with regards to Performance Indicators (PI) used in Examination PI calculations. If SIMS is required to calculate Exam PI in summer 18, it will be necessary to ensure that this is setup correctly in SIMS. This half-day course is being offered so that delegates are able to maintain their own school’s PI data remotely from our training room, with DMS consultants on hand to provide guidance. There will be some formal training, however the majority of the time spent in the session will be for delegates to maintain their 2018 PI Data on their own school data and seek advice where needed. HfL have allocated six discounted places for schools wishing to send a second delegate (sharing a machine) on a first-come first-served basis. Please note that we will send instructions (to the email address used to book a place onto this course) for setting up a computer in school to be connected to remotely during the session. Please ensure that you book a place on the course at least a week before it takes place to allow sufficient time for your network support provider/technician to set up the remote connection. If this is not done before you arrive at the course, you will have to use our training dataset instead during the session. We will also require a permission form to be signed by the headteacher or deputy headteacher and returned to us (or brought with you to the course), otherwise the remote connection will not be possible.
