PCSchool has enhanced the integration between the Spider Calendar and Assessment Criteria information when adding assessment task due dates to the calendar.
Previously when publishing assessment due dates to the Calendar, via the Subject and Assessment Criteria control in Spider, it only allowed the date, item description and an attachment. Now the ‘Criteria’ information for that task will also be displayed in the Calendar.
In addition, any attachments to assessment items in the Calendar will now open in a new window.
Available in Spider version 2013.10 and above (Post Conference release available end October).
PCSchool has made further enhancements to the Subject and Assessment Criteria control, now linking it to the Calendar. Due dates for assessment items can be entered in via the Subject and Assessment Criteria control with the ability to also add attachments (either files or hyperlinks).
These dates are then propagated to the Calendar within Spider and visible to to students, caregivers and teachers that have that subject attached to them in the timetable or for assessment.
