Manually synch Markbook column to results

You can manually synch a column in the markbook if you have added a column and you want the result in that column to save back to the student so that it can print on reports.

Steps involved:

  1. Ensure the area of assessment is in the Curriculum Plan and has been allocated to the students
  2. Know what result field the result should be synchronized to
  3. Enter the relevant details in the Markbook column

 

**WARNING: Selecting the wrong field may result in loss of data. If you are not sure contact the PCSchool Help Desk.
