In Plymouth, at the end of the year, our schools print all of the students’ report cards and then file them away as an official copy. There are times when this system gets a little messy and we were noticing some of the following issues:
- Because each school was responsible for printing these instead of one administrator, there was a possibility that the report cards were being printed at different times with different inputs
- All of these copies were stored in different locations (at each school)
- It was difficult for users to find these copies when needed
Of course you could run a report card for a previous school year and get the results right from Aspen. However, depending on the fields being displayed on the report card, some of the values may no longer be what they were (for example, homerooms and grade levels). We needed a better solution.
