  • Two days

This course runs on consecutive days.

Course Objectives

This course will cover:

  • the key components of Assessment; aspects, grade sets, result sets and categories
  • building templates and creating marksheets
  • utilising formulae in marksheets
  • creating, using and filtering data review marksheets
  • designing and generating individual reports
  • the basic capabilities of Analysis.

Target Audience

The course assumes no previous knowledge of SIMS Assessment although some experience of the use of SIMS would be an advantage but is not essential.


  • Access to a stable internet connection.
  • Access to the remote training solution website or should be unblocked
  • Ideally delegates will have two monitors. One screen for the teams meeting and one for the SIMS software/Training database. Delegate can split their screen if they have only 1 monitor.
  • Delegates can choose if they would prefer, to view the course rather than actively participating using a training database or in some instances use their own SIMS database.
  • You will be sent an email on the morning of the course with your login details for the training database. Please check your junk/spam in your email if it is not received in your inbox. If you have any issues connecting to the website or have not received your login details please call 0345 2226802.
  • Training notes will be sent electronically.  Delegates may find them easier to follow if printed, therefore you will need access to a printer prior to the course.
  • Courses are delivered live therefore delegates must be on time and available undisturbed for the duration of the course. If courses are scheduled for multiple days, you must be available for all dates/times to complete the course.
  • You must have a headset to listen to the training but if you don’t have a microphone then you can put any questions/comments in the chat in Teams. We find that interaction is best where delegates can ask questions via a mic.
