Click on Lists and you will see options for various list which can be generated by Career Central data.
For example if you click on 'My Plans' you will get a spreadsheet of all the student responses to the “My Plans” page.
Similarly you can get related data for school subjects, leavers’ information, interview counts and how many jobs students have in their jobs bank.
Here you can create a report based on any of the modules in Career Central. For example you might want to create a report with students Occupational Interests, Further Education they are interested in, Subjects they are considering taking next year and a comment as to how suitable the subjects are. This could then be sent home to parents and recorded on the student’s profile.
To create a report click on View Reports, and Create New Report.
Click on New Report to begin the setup process.
Create a report name and give it a description. You might want to make it clear here that the information on the report (such as skills, values etc..) has been selected by the student not assessed by you.
The description you add here will appear at the top of the report.
When you scroll down you will then have the option to choose which modules you would like to appear in the report eg. Skills, occupations, interview notes etc.
If you click on the type button you will see the modules available to put on the report. However you can choose to name them something different. This name will appear on the report. For example, since the information is selected by students, when you add the Career Values module you might want to call it “what’s important to me about work” or if you are adding careers (job titles) you might call it “jobs I am interested in”.
One of the options is the Careers Advisors Comment. If you add this to your report you will have the option to set a bank of standard comments to make.
Click on “Set comment options”
Then add the comments you want.
The comment name is a quick reference for you when setting comments. The actual comment goes in the comment box. For example you might want to call the comment “subjects don’t match occupations” but the actual comment would read “Some of your subject choices may not allow you to pursue your occupational interests, please see a Careers Advisor or Dean before making your final choices”.
Once you have all the modules selected for the report click on Select Students and choose a previously created group who you are making the report for. Refer back to Groups/Search for how to create a group.
Once your group is selected you can click on Comment on Reports.
Click on Set Comments. You will then see a preview of the report you have created and, at the bottom, a place to set your report comment.
Here you will choose the comment that is appropriate. If you feel you have not created enough comments to cover all the things you might want to say, you can go back to the “Edit Report” section and add more.
Finally click on Publish Reports.
You can then view a PDF of the report, download the report (for printing) or publish the report (to appear on the student’s profile).
At the bottom of the reports list you will see the options to download and publish all reports at once. Or if you want to you can unpublish and remove reports from students’ files.
