After defining a new, or editing an existing template, click the Save button on the Focus Bar to save the template.
NOTE: Any changes you make to a template is reflected in any marksheets currently associated with the template.
Editing Existing Templates
Marksheets are created by associating a group or groups of pupil/students with a template. Once created, the marksheets remain associated with the template and therefore, any template edits is reflected the next time an associated marksheet is opened.
To edit an existing template, select Focus | Assessment | Template to display the Find Template browser.
It is only possible to delete templates created within SIMS Assessment or imported from another source. You will not therefore, be able to delete any templates created by another module, such as Examinations Organiser.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Deleting a template also deletes ALL marksheets associated with the template. Any results entered via such marksheets are retained. Select Focus | Assessment | Template to display the Find Template browser.
Highlight the required template. You can filter the list of templates by Category (please see Filtering Your View using Categories on page 83).
Click the Delete button on the Focus Bar to delete the selected template.
