System IssuesEnsuring accuracy of levels/projectionsFFTD and ALPS not always appropriateParents more informed than tutors

On-line PASSWORD problem

We respond to this knowledge byChecking data and questioning anomalies before reports are released using assessment suiteScrutiny of department assessment procedures ( supported by the above)Raising targets above ALPS/FFTD? ( performance management conflict)Directed time used to ensure tutors read through reports
