Glossary

        1. Aspect


Any task or event for which an assessment outcome can be recorded. Aspects can be likened to the column headings in a teacher’s mark book. Each Aspect will have a name, a Column Heading and a Type that define the sort of result that can be recorded.

Aspects can be imported and exported via XML files.


        1. Aspect Type


Defines what type of assessment outcome can be recorded. There are five Aspect types:

Grade – e.g. A, B, C, D etc.

Marks (Integer) – e.g. 54, 75 etc

Marks (Decimal) – 68.75, 84.25 etc

Age - 12/9, 8/04 etc

Comment – free text up to 1000 characters


        1. Category


Defined to identify sets of related information. Once created, Aspects, marksheets and templates can be associated with one or more Categories enabling the view, in their respective browsers, to be restricted or filtered according to the Categories selected.
        1. Category Type


Used to organise Categories. For example the English, Maths and Science Categories might all be grouped under the Department Category Type.
        1. CSI


Core Subject Indicator. Only used in Wales.

At Key Stage 1, pupil/students who achieve Level 2 or greater in English or Welsh and Maths and Science have a CSI of Y (otherwise N).

AT Key Stage 2, pupil/students who achieve Level 4 or greater in English or Welsh and Maths and Science have a CSI of Y (otherwise N).

At Key Stage 3 pupil/students are expected to achieve Level 5.


        1. Data Entry Column


Any column in a marksheet in which pupil/student results are entered. They can be Aspects or Formula columns.
        1. Data Review Column


A column in a marksheet that is for viewing and reporting purposes only.
        1. Formula Column


paper to a computer file.

In SIMS Assessment, the OMR is an alternative to using the keyboard to enter pupil/student results.


        1. Permissions


Settings that determine which areas of functionality an individual may use within a SIMS module, e.g. read-only, enter, enter and authorise, authorise etc. These settings can be applied to the different functional areas within a module using System Manager.
        1. Result Date


The date the result was attained.
        1. Result Entry Date


The date the result was entered on the system.
        1. Result Set


Results can be associated with a result set to make sure that only a single result will be stored. This single result can be overwritten but not appended to. This might be used, for example, to store End of Key Stage results.

This is in contrast to the default setting, where a history of results can be stored for the same Aspect.


        1. Role


A collection of permissions that define the various areas of functionality a user can access.
        1. Template


The definition of the columns (Aspects) that will appear in marksheets. Once defined, templates are associated with one or more groups of pupil/students to create marksheets.
        1. XML File


XML stands for EXtensible Markup Language. XML can be used to place structured data into a text file. XML is the standard used for transferring appropriate data between all establishments/organisations and across all platforms in the education sector.
