The result description is the description you may have given to a grade when defining a grade set. A result description can be inserted anywhere in the Individual Report Format, except in a graph. For example, in an Effort grade set, you might have given Grade A a description of "worked exceptionally hard this term". You might have given Grade B a description of "worked hard this term.", and so on. This grade set would be used in an Effort Aspect, which in turn would be used in a marksheet to collect results.
When inserting a result description, you select the required Aspect and the description attached to the grade entered for a particular student against that Aspect is displayed in their report. For example, "<> has <>" in the Individual Report Format would be generated in the report, for a student awarded a grade A, as "Russell has worked exceptionally hard this term."
To insert a result description:
From within the Word document, place the cursor where you wish to insert the result description.
Right-click and select Insert Result Description from the pop-up menu to display the Result Description Details dialog.
This dialog enables you to select the Aspect with which the result description you wish to display is associated and to choose how to filter the search for that result.
The Grade Type is read-only, because result descriptions apply only to grade aspects.
If required, filter the display further by selecting the required Categories. Click the + or – symbols to expand and contract the list then select the check box adjacent to each required Category. The list of Aspects is restricted to only those Aspects associated with the selected Categories.
To quickly locate a particular Aspect, enter the first character(s) of the Aspect in the Searching for field and the first Aspect matching the character(s) typed is highlighted. Continue to enter characters until the Aspect you are searching for is highlighted.
Click the required Aspect, which will then change colour to blue.
You now need to select the method to filter the result, either by Result Set or by Result Date. This is done in exactly the same way as in Inserting Results.
Click the Close button to close the Result Description Details dialog and to return to the Individual Report Format Word document.
