Bespoke Frameworks: Uploading your CSV file


 Share

Recommended Posts

In this tutorial we'll look at how you can upload your CSV file to Tapestry and create your bespoke framework. If you need any help creating your CSV file you can find a link to our tutorial on this here.

To add a bespoke framework you will first need to click your name in the top right (1) and go to the Control Panel (2).

You will then need to select 'Settings' (1) then 'Assessments', (2) and click the button to 'Add a new bespoke framework' (3).

There's some information and a video about bespoke frameworks on the next page. We do recommend reading this information and watching the video. Once you are happy click to begin adding your framework.

At the bottom of the next page you will be able to upload your CSV. To do so you will just need to click 'Choose file' (1) then select the CSV file from your computer and select 'Upload' (2). If you change your mind or want to edit your CSV file before uploading, clicking 'Cancel' (3) will take you back to the Assessments page.

You will then be shown a preview of the structure of your framework, including your Details and their Components. For more information on how bespoke frameworks are structured I would recommend looking at our tutorial on Scales, Details and Components, which you can find here.

If you are happy with how the framework looks click to continue (1). Otherwise you can go back and upload a different file (2).

You will then be able to enter a title (1) and a brief description of your framework (2). Once you're done click the 'Next' button (3). Alternatively, you can choose to exit and save your framework as a draft to continue adding later (4).

Any draft frameworks will be visible from the 'Assessments' section of the Control Panel, along with options to continue adding (1) or discard them (2).

The next step after selecting a title and writing a short description is adding a Scale. This is not mandatory so you can skip this step if you choose to. A Scale acts like a refinement or like tiers in our Key Stage frameworks, and will allow you to add more of a fine-grained assessment. If you have any trouble there is a short video you can watch and a link to our tutorial on Scales, Details and Components on this page.

To add a Scale, click the 'Add Scale' button (1) or click 'Next' (2) to continue.

If you select to add a Scale you will be prompted to name your Scale (1), select the number of items (2) and to give your items a name and short name (3). In this case the 'Items' will be similar to the individual refinements or tiers. For example, you could add three items and call them 'Emerging', 'Developing' and 'Secure'. Item one will always be the lowest in the Scale. Once you are done click 'Save Scale' (4).

Next you will be able to adjust your Components. These are the categories included in your framework and will tell Tapestry how each Detail should look and behave . An example of a few different Components could be 'Areas', 'Aspects' and 'Statements'.

You should be able to see a list of your Components, added from your CSV spreadsheet. If you would like to make any changes you will be able to add a new Component (1), edit (2) or delete (3) a Component.

Before you are able to proceed you will need to make at least one Component selectable, which means you can tick items under this category when you add an observation. For example, if your framework includes statements you may choose to make these selectable. If you have added a Scale you will also need to apply this to at least one of your Components. Again, if your framework includes them, your statements might be a good choice for this. In the example below we will make the Component 'Experiences and Outcomes' selectable and apply our Scale to it by clicking the 'Edit' button (2).

To make a Component selectable, click the option under 'Display Style' (1). To apply a Scale to your Component you will just need to click the relevant box under 'Scales' (2). Once you're done click 'Save Component' (3).

Once you are happy click the 'Save Assessment Framework' button at the bottom right of the screen.

If you then go back to the 'Assessments' section of the Control Panel your framework should appear under 'Saved Assessment Frameworks'.

Clicking 'Preview' (1) will allow you to see what your framework will look like when you use it with an observation. You will also have the option to edit (2) or delete (3) your framework.

To enable your framework you will need to click 'Configure' (4), and tick the box to 'Enable' (5). If you would like relatives to be able to see the assessments linked to their children's observations you can also click the box to 'Display to relatives' (6). Please note this will not affect the visibility of the observations themselves, only the assessments. To save your setting's click 'Submit' (7).

You will now be able to add your bespoke framework to your observations.
