EXPORTING YOUR DATA FROM SIMS

Once all your teacher assessments have been entered into SIMS you can analyse the data in Tracker+. To do this, you must first export the data from SIMS.

 

Begin by logging into SIMS and go to:

 

Focus > Assessment > Marksheet Entry

 

There is a single marksheet that needs to be exported. Find, '_Tracker+ Master Basedata Export' and double click to open the marksheet. There's a lot of data in this marksheet so it could take a minute or so to open and compile the data. Once the marksheet is loaded click the 'Export' button. If you're asked, export the data as 'Formatted'. This will export the data into Microsoft Excel. Once in Excel, click File > Save As and save this file in your Tracker+ folder - you can name it anything you like.

IMPORTING YOUR DATA INTO TRACKER+

The final step is to import your data into Tracker+. Begin by opening Tracker+ and click the 'Import Data' button. Select the file you created in Step 1. That's it - we will handle the rest.
