Using Marksheets in Edulink One

Marksheets in Edulink One use a live call to SIMS and are not cached. When a teacher makes changes to their marksheets, updates are written live.

To access marksheets, teachers need to log in to Edulink One and click on the Marksheets icon.

To set up marksheets for your school, configure your Marksheets tab.

Marksheets Icon

Then, the marksheets window opens with a detailed list of the teacher’s marksheets.

The right-hand side of the window displays the teacher. There is also an option to Change Teacher to help fill in another employee’s marksheets.

Unlike other teachers, marksheet administrators have an Edit Comment Bank button. In this function, they can create, edit and delete comment banks on marksheets.

Your school’s marksheets are pulled from SIMS and, therefore, will be identical to the ones created there.

The learners are located at the far left of the marksheet. To view your learners, you need to navigate vertically using the arrow. However, to view pupil information such as SEN Status, PP, FSM and attainment/effort grades, you must navigate horizontally using the arrow.

Moreover, individual teachers can input grades or select flood fill. Comment banks are available to individual teachers to complete, as above.
