Creating a Key Stage Report


Recommended Posts



In this tutorial I will talk you through the steps of how to create a Report using one of the Key Stage templates. 

The Reports feature will be enabled by default on your account, so if you want to create a new report, click on the "Reports" button (1) on the top bar. You'll be automatically taken to your "Overview" page (2) which will show a list of the recent Reports. To start creating your report, choose which template you would like to use from the list on the right-hand side (3). In this tutorial we will be using a Year 4 template, but the layout is very similar for the others. 




Once you have confirmed the template you'd like to use and selected the child you are writing the report for, you will be taken to this screen: 




Be sure to give your report a title (1). Reports cannot be saved without a title. You can set the Report's status and date from the Options box (2). 

Throughout the Report you can choose to 'hide' certain sections (3) or fields (4). If they are hidden, they will not show up in the finished report. Also, if any of the boxes contain no text they will be hidden by default. 

This first section of your Report format will be for "Details". You can include the School Name, Year Group, Class Name, Teacher's Name and Additional Information. Under this there is a section for Teacher Comments. 

After these sections, you'll start working through the areas of learning for your chosen framework. 




Tapestry will automatically fill assessments based on the child's Summative Assessment screen for the current period you are working in. If you would like to use data from a different period, you can select it by clicking the "Fill Assessments" button (1) and choosing a different period. 

Each area of learning has its own section containing drop-down menus for the areas of learning. Clicking on the menus will bring up the different statements. Here we can see some of the statements for Spoken Language. You can change any of this information manually. You can either do it in bulk by using the buttons at the top of each section (2) or individually using the drop-down Tier menus under each statement. Please note, only statements that are ticked will appear in the Report. If you wanted to see the Observations that contributed to these results, you can click the "Observations" button (3). 

Another important thing to note, if you change any results on this Report, that change will not be reflected on the child's Summative Assessment screen.

At the bottom of each area, you will see 2 boxes. One for Comments (1) and one for Targets (2).




Once you are happy with the assessment data for each area, it's time to finish off! The last part of the report looks like this: 




As you can see, there is a section for Pupil Voice (1). Clicking the blue "sign" button (2) will bring up an e-signature box which can be displayed on the finished report. SLT have their own section for comments and also a signature (3).




You can also use the 'Media' section at the bottom of the page to add any supporting documents, photos, videos or audio files. You can do this by clicking ‘Add Files’(1), selecting the files from your computer, and then clicking ‘Start Upload’ (2).

You can also remove any files you have added using the Delete button (3), or you can change the order of the files using the arrows on the right (4). Your order will be honoured once saved, but do note that documents show up in a different section to photos, videos and audio files. 

Once that's all done and you're happy with it, just click 'Save Report' (5).

To share your report with relatives, you just need to follow this tutorial.
