Marksheets are simply the mechanism for entering results, with the saved results stored independently. Therefore, deleting the marksheet removes the ability to add or edit existing results in the marksheet.
It is important, in terms of general housekeeping, to regularly delete completed marksheets to make sure that unwanted marksheets are no longer available for editing.
NOTE: You should only consider deleting a marksheet if it has been marked as completed.

Individual Reports allow you to design and generate reports for individual pupil/students in Microsoft® Word.
Before reports can be generated, one or more Individual Report Formats must have been created in or imported into SIMS Assessment. Individual Report Formats are templates on which Individual Reports can be based and are designed within Microsoft® Word. Reports are generated by associating the required pupil/students with a selected Individual Report Format.
The report can retrieve and display selected pupil/student results that have previously been entered in SIMS Assessment. A number of Student Detail tags can be inserted into the Individual Report Format (e.g. pupil/student name, parent/carer name, address, etc.), so that when each report is generated the tag is replaced by the relevant Student Detail. For example, the parent/carer tag inserted into Individual Report Format is replaced by the relevant parent/carer name when each pupil/student report is generated. The class teacher name can also be inserted into the report.
Graphs displaying pupil/student results can also be designed and inserted into the Individual Report, by users with appropriate permissions. You might, for example, want to use graphs to display Target-Outcome comparisons as well as for year to year result tracking.
Before creating an Individual Report Format, you must previously have created:
Categories (if required)
Aspects (and appropriate grade sets)
Each part of the procedure for creating and printing reports is described in detail in this chapter but the steps are summarised as follows:
Create an Individual Report Format by designing a Format from scratch, cloning and modifying an existing Format or importing a Format.
Generate Reports by attaching pupil/student names to a Report Format.
Optionally, view an individual pupil/student’s Report in Microsoft® Word.
Print pupil/student Reports.
