Cloning Aspects

Cloning an aspect enables you to make a copy of the selected aspect.

This functionality is particularly useful if you wish to use an existing aspect as the framework for a new one. For example, you may have already created an aspect to record a Maths Key Stage 1 result, but would like to create an aspect for an English Key Stage 1 result. Instead of creating a similar aspect from scratch, you can clone an existing aspect.

When you clone an aspect, all of the information stored for the original aspect is copied to the new aspect, such as the associated grade and Category information. Once an aspect has been cloned, enter a new Name, Column Heading and perhaps the Description to indicate the purpose of the new aspect.

  1. Select Focus | Assessment | Aspect to display the Find Aspect browser.

  2. Highlight the aspect you wish to clone and click the Open button.

  3. Click the Clone button to clone the currently selected aspect.

  4. Enter a name for the new aspect and make any further changes, as required.

  5. Click the Save button to save the new aspect.

    1. Deleting Aspects

You cannot delete aspects that are associated with any templates or results, or that are used as Registration and Admissions criteria. An error message is displayed if you attempt to delete such an aspect.

NOTE: You may wish to inform the Profiles Co-ordinator when you delete an aspect, as the aspect may be used by Profiles in a comment link.

  1. Select the aspect you wish to delete (please see Selecting Aspects on page 96).

  2. Click the Delete button on the Focus Bar.

Delete button

You are prompted to confirm the deletion.

  1. Click the Yes button to delete the aspect.
    1. Viewing Aspect Properties

The properties of an aspect can be viewed by viewing the Properties panel. The information displayed is read-only.

Default Name, Default Column Heading and Default Description show the information added when the aspect was originally created. Where an aspect has been imported, this information is defined by the person who created the aspect, regardless of any changes that may have been made following import.

When exporting the aspect, this default information is used in the export file. However, when re-importing an existing aspect, you can choose whether you wish to overwrite any existing name, column heading or description with the default information in the import file or retain any changes that you have made prior to the import.

The Module field identifies which SIMS module was used to create the aspect, which in most circumstances is SIMS Assessment. The Supplier field displays the establishment that created the aspect. The Owner is the name of the user who created the aspect.
