In this section we are going to learn how to assign Learning Areas to a subject, this makes up Phase 2. This is the final part of building the backbone to our reports. Completing this step will ensure that the system knows what learning areas should be assessed in each subject/year levels. This information will be used to populate curriculum graphs inside the student reports.
There are two ways to create subjects in the system.
- You can manually create a subject by clicking "Create New Subject"
- Or you can import all your subjects at once, which you mostly likely have done by completing early sections of this mannual. (See Phase 1- Importing Cohorts, Subjects & Assigning users)
Once you have your subjects in the system click on 'Edit' to assign the Learning Areas to these subjects.
Adding Learning Areas
Once you have the subject open you can use the search box or scroll down the list of Learning Areas until you find the Learning Area you would like to add to this subject and then click on the check box to add it to the subject.
If you would like to remove a particular strand from within that domain you can remove it using the X next to the strand.
Once you are done adding Learning Areas to the subject simply click "update" to apply these changes.
You have now successfully completed Phase 1 & 2 of the SPAreporter report run workflow. The system now knows the following:
1.The system knows which students are in the school (Via the SPAtracker Student ID template)
2.The system knows what classes these students are in (Via the SPAtracker Student ID template)
3.The system knows what subjects/year levels occur in the school (Via the Cohort/Teacher Import File)
4.The system knows which classes are attached to each subject/year level (Via the Cohort/Teacher Import File)
5.The system knows which teachers teach each class (Via the Cohort/Teacher Import File)
6.The system knows what learning areas should be assessed in each subject/year levels (Via manually inputting the Learning Areas against each subject)
