Curriculum customisation is available to all schools on a subscription basis. To customise an existing framework you will need to be logged in as the school admin user. 

You can add new objectives to existing subjects as well as ones that you have created yourself.

To add an objective, you will need to access the subject details screen for the subject that you want to add objectives to.

Then, click on the blue 'Edit' button in the top right hand corner and choose 'Objectives'.

This will take you to the 'Objectives Select' screen. From the menu in the top left hand corner, you should select the level where you want to add an objective. Then you should press the 'Create Objective' button.

This will take you to the page shown below where you can enter all of the details for your new objective.

Code: Can be left blank. If you choose to add a code, this will be used to identify the objective in the tables and graphs within Curriculum Tracking.

The four main boxes are for entering the text for the objective.

Markbook objective: This is the only box that you have to enter text for. You should type the text that you want to be used in markbooks and what will be added to reports and Assessment Sumamries for unassessed objectives.

You can use coding in the statement which will mean that it will be personalised to individual pupils when used in the pupil markbook or reports. Under each box, you will see buttons that you can press to enter the relevant code e.g. ## for pupil's name. To see how the statements will look without the coding, you can use the 'Preview Statements' button towards the top of the page (note that relevant capitalisation will happen automatically.

The next 3 or 4 boxes can be used to enter the text that will be added to reports and assessment summaries if a statement has been assessed as red, yellow, green or blue. The language used for the title of each box will reflect the Assessment Terminology used by your school for the selected curriculum.

In this example, you can see the default language for Rising Stars of Target, Almost, Met and Exceeding.You may want to type a variation on the markbook objective that reflects the different levels of assessment. For example, you may write a statement in the Almost Objective box using words like 'can often' or 'is usually able to' and language such as 'should work towards' or 'needs more practice' in the Target Objective box. If you leave any of these boxes blank, the Markbook Objective will be duplicated.

NB If copying and pasting statements from other documents, please make sure that you only copy the text into each box. Copying spaces and/or extra lines after the text can cause issues when used in reporting.

The final large box shows the text for the Guidance which appears when you hover over that objective in the markbook. You may notice that there is some html coding in the box above to format the text, but this can be entered as plain text if you would prefer.

You will then need to select:

  • Level: The level that the objective should be added to.
  • Strand: Assign it to a strand if you wish to do so
  • Status: Allows you to specify whether an objective should be switched on or off in your school markbooks.

There are Advanced options at the bottom of the objectives screen. In most cases, you will not need to change these but if you do feel that you need to, you can find more guidance on this 
help page.

When you are happy with your objective, you should press the green 'Save Changes' button in the bottom right hand corner. If you do not press this button, changes will not be saved.
