Submission of your examination results on Results Day will now happen through Connect Data.
Connect Data is our new and improved free tool for data submission:
Available now for monitoring data submissions!
With Connect Data you will have full control of your own data. Data Connect will take you through the steps to help you ensure that you data is correct and accurate before you upload it. You will have instant analysis on the data you upload.
1. Activated Account
Check that your school or college is activated with a myAlps account. If you have a currently activated myAlps account, this will transfer into your new Connect Account automatically for the Summer. If you are unsure please contact the office now on 01484 887 600.
Important – The activation process requires your username and password to be posted to your schools or college. If you are not activated by Results Day your data submission and subsequent analysis will be delayed.
2. Authorised Users
Check who your Authorised Users are. These are the staff who currently have the access rights to upload data via myAlps. Check they are the correct people and if necessary update your permissions to ensure the right people have access on Results Day. If you are unsure please contact the office now on 01484 887 600.
3. Practice with Connect Data now!
Use our Connect Data Instructions to practice using our new Connect Data software before the end of term:
We are running free webinars on "Preparing for Results Day" to help data managers set up Connect Data, ready for a quick and easy import on Results Day.
BEFORE RESULTS DAY
Check you can access Connect Data
Check your access to Connect Data before Results Day – the person submitting your Results will need to see this Data button on the Connect homepage.
Prepare and import your Cohort data
Import your Student Details and Teaching Set data. This will be saved within the application, ready for Results Day. If you already uploaded a Cohort for monitoring using Connect Data, please check you are happy with your subjects and teaching sets.
Import dry run results to create your subject mappings
If you are confident that you know the format of your subject names in your Results Day export, import a dry run data set and save your subject mappings.
ON RESULTS DAY
Import your Results
Import your Results data, needing only the Student ID, Subject and Grade to link to your pre-prepared Cohort data.
Map your subjects in one click
Map your subjects in one click using the saved subject mappings from the dry run import.
Add to Connect
Add your data to Connect, allowing reports to be run instantly and analysis in Connect Interactive.
In September, Connect will allow you to generate Minimum Expected Grades (MEGs) for both Key Stage 4 and 5 and import them into your MIS.
Target setting webinars will run throughout September helping you to get the most from your Alps Connect tool and embed Alps across your school or college.
