Board reports in BI suite

Information, hints and tips for getting the most out of running the course board report in BI Suite.

Pre course board use "Export marks" function

Use the Export Marks screen to verify marks data is correct rather than continually refreshing the BIS report. This will maintain the best performance of the BI suite reporting. If you are making changes to marks and needing to press calculate again, simply keep the export marks screen open and refresh it using F5 to see the new calculations take effect.

Exporting course board information

It is designed to be run at the last minute and for minimal (if any) re-formatting to be done. This will enable you to make last minute changes within the assessment hub in EUCLID and produce a final report (in excel or pdf), ensuring that you are not having to maintain the data both in your board report and in the assessment hub.
