By default, Spider will not show all the reports that can be seen within Back Office. This is an intentional to ensure the Spider user is not faced with a large number of extraneous reports that they may not used by the school. Each school has the option to choose the reports to be seen within Spider but using the Scholastic > Report Alias Settings option.
- Identify the report
- Select the user types to see the report within Spider
STEP 1 – Identify the report
- The “Report Alias” box identifies the report that is going to be launched when the above options are selected. In most cases this is the report you will need to select in the step below. If you can't find the report name in the available reports below it is likely it is an alias off another report. In this case you will need to go to Scholastic > Utilities > Report Alias Listing to find the original report name that this alias is attached to.
STEP 2 – Select the user types to see the report within Spider
In the example below, the ASSESMID.RPT has been made available to Teachers (Staff), Students and Caregivers. Please be aware, however, that making this type of report available will mean parents can preview it at any time, so incomplete or unchecked data could be seen. It is better practise to either print the completed assessment report to the Document Management for students and caregivers to see once it is completed, or only enable the report when all checking has been completed. Also be aware that allowing caregivers to generate reports does put a load on your Spider server.
The option to “Publish in Student Based Reports” will allow the report to appear in the “Student Based reports”section of the “Student Information” control however it is important that the only types of reports tagged for this are in fact based on a student.
