Add Personalised Targets

Add Personalised Targets

Once you have imported your Year Group, teaching data and prior attainment scores, you will be able to import your own Personalised Targets, if you wish to do so.


The Personalised Targets wizard can be launched from the quick actions toolbar in the top right-hand corner of the screen:


Or, from the Year Group summary bar:


This import is very similar to the grades import wizards; you need to import your Student IDs, subjects and teacher set targets. 

The Personalised Target grades need to be whole grades, as they will be validated against the mapped subjects as monitoring or exam results imports would be. Your import spreadsheet can be in a rows per student (marksheet or broadsheet) format, or a rows per entry format (as seen below).


Once you finish the Personalised Targets wizard, you can download your target setting resources immediately from the MEG Reports section of the toolbar:


Or, from the MEG Reports section of the Connect Homepage:

During your import using the Add Personalised Targets wizard, the following articles may also be of use:
