Shared Reports:

These are four shared reports from Susan Evans in Haywood County. If you have questions, contact Susan at sevans@haywood.k12.nc.us

Notes from Susan about these reports:
There is a bug in printing multiple students at one time. It will skip students. I have a ticket in with DPI, but who knows when they will look at it. When you create a report you don't define printing attributes, that means there is nothing I can change to fix it. It prints individual students fine, but if select multiple it may skip students.

Also the Student Detail 6 and 9 week reports is not built for Elementary Schools. I am going to create one for Elementary in the next few weeks. When I get that completed, I will share that report also.

Remind other LEA's they will need to edit the report to reflect the dates for their LEA. Start and End Date, 1st Nine weeks - 4 Nine Weeks,
1st 6weeks - 6 6weeks, S1, S2, etc. It all in the body of the object report.

The problem I noted that the reports will skip students if selecting multiple students has been solved by pearson. In the report where I have the following text field: Open that and the field: scroll down to Special, and uncheck that. They said "Move to the next student record" is normally used if you have created a report with many student records on one page - address labels for instance. It is not needed for this report. -

Let everyone now - Thank You!
