There may be times where it is necessary to place a pupil on report, so that teachers can monitor and record a specific aspect of their behaviour.
Class Charts allows you to do this with the On-Report Cards module.
Enabling On-Report cards
Before On-Report cards can be used, the module needs to be enabled.
To enable On-Report cards for your school's Class Charts account, click on the three lines menu in the top right hand corner of Class Charts and select Schools settings from the list of available options.
You will be presented with a list of settings that control the modules for your school's Class Charts account. Set On-Report Cards to Enabled.
Setting up an On-Report card
To set up a new On-Report card, click on the Pupils tab along the top of the page.
You will be presented with a list of pupils that are currently enrolled at your school. Click on the expand icon in the On-Report column for the pupil of your choice.
The On-Report Card popup will appear, displaying any On-Report cards that have currently been assigned to the pupil. Click on the button labelled Add new report card.
The Edit On-Report Card popup will appear. Enter the details of the On-Report card into the fields provided and click on the Save button to continue. The available fields are explained below:
