New era for admin IT;Scetworks 97;Education

15th May 1998 at 01:00
There are five core modules to Scetworks 97, which cover:

* administration and staff records

* attendance

* 5-14 Curriculum

* Scottish Qualification Authority requirements, and

* examinations

The program also includes smaller modules covering accounts, budgeting, assessment, staff appraisal, library, personal development, organisational development, premises and school reports.

The Key Solutions philosophy, continued by RM Management Solutions which is working with SCET, has always been to extend ICT support from administration into management.

Arguably, Key Solutions is ahead of its time in trying to sell ICT management tools to schools still attempting to come to terms with basic computerised administration.

But today we are in a new era of school improvement: there is a need for value-added measurement and for curriculum management based on the collection of assessment data. Schools, government and authorities want to be able to share all of this information electronically.

In this climate, the availablesoftware will need to extend itself far beyond the basic administrativefunctions. Some of the management modules found both in RM Management Solutions and Scetworks 97 will come into their own. Assessment Manager, forexample, has every appearance of being a powerful aid to handling the mass of data that assessment procedures are now producing.
