Database Listings

Accelerus Icon

Accelerus has a wide range of database listings available for users to preview and/or print. These include various listings of students, teachers, classes, enrolments, assessment items, marking schemes, etc.

They allow you to selectively output information from the Accelerus database by entering selection criteria, to restrict the listing to particular records. For example, instead of listing all subjects, you might want to list just those for a particular year level, or those which are coordinated by a particular teacher, and so forth.

Different selection criteria fields are available for different listings. When you click on one of the listings in the Data Listing window, the available selection criteria for that listing will be displayed.

Once a list has been sent to the Print Preview window, you may then choose to print all or part of it, scroll through its pages, export it to a file, and other actions.


Ent DataListingsWindowNumbers





Most of the data listings available apply to the academic cycles currently in force in the database, as listed in the top right-hand corner of the Data Listings window.

Note, however, that some of the listings are perpetual and not influenced by the academic cycles, eg marking scheme listings.


Click the particular listing you require from those listed in the table.


The Selection Criteria section will vary according to the listing selected. These allow you to limit your listing to particular records.


Many of the listings include a set of checkboxes which may be ticked to include particular records, applicable to the particular listing.


You may enter search criteria in one or more search fields, including using wildcard characters, to restrict the listings to matching records, eg enter *MAT in the Subject Code field to include only subjects ending with MAT.


Clicking the Preview button brings up a window from which you may view the particular listing prior to printing it.



minusSteps to preview and print

To select listings to print or preview in Accelerus:

Go to the File menu and select Data Listings.
Click the particular listing that you require.

For most listings, when highlighted, a set of search criteria applicable to the listing become available, if you wish to limit the listing to particular records.

Tick any of the search criteria checkboxes that may be available, if required.
Enter any search criteria in the available fields to restrict the listings to matching records, using the same search protocols as in Quick Find and Explorers, including entering wildcard characters.
Click the Preview button, or double click the listing.
In the Preview window, as required, move through the pages of the listings, export to an external file, make annotations, or perform any other preview option available via the toolbar.
To print the report, click the Print icon in the toolbar to bring up a Print dialogue box from which you chose the pages to be printed, number of copies, etc.


minusEntering search criteria

You may enter search criteria for most listings in order to restrict the data in the listing to particular records. For example, instead of listing all subjects, you might want to list just those for a particular learning area, or those which have not been closed off, and so forth.

Different fields are available for different listings. When you click on one of the listings in the Database Listings window, the available selection criteria for that listing will be displayed.

Two types of restrictions are generally available:

Checkboxes to include or exclude certain types of records, eg current teachers, closed subjects or withdrawn students.
Fields in which you may enter text, including wildcard characters. The same set of wildcard characters used in the Quick Find and Explorer windows in Accelerus are available here, eg * or ? in place of multiple or single characters respectively.

You may enter selection criteria in as many fields as needed, and/or check the combination of checkboxes required, with each restricting the selection even further.

NB When entering search criteria in date fields, you may use date formats such as 28/2/12, 02.2.2012, etc. However, do not use hyphens as delimiters in dates as the hyphen is a wildcard signifying a range, eg 2/2/2012-13/3/2012.

Ent DataListingsCriteria

In the example shown above, for a Class Enrolments listing, only classes of subjects with a code where the third and fourth letters are MA are to be selected and, of these, only those where the subject level is 4, or between 7 and 9

In addition, any subjects which have been closed off that meet these criteria will be included.


minusAvailable data listings

The table below contains a brief description of each of the listings available from the Data Listings window.

These two reports have the same format except that one is grouped by Subject and one by Coordinator.

Both formats list subjects and the teachers with a subject level role, together with details of the assessment items set up for each subject.

The format by Subject sorts the listing into alphabetical order based on Subject Code. The by Coordinator option groups the subjects by their teacher who has a subject level role, firstly, and then each subject in alphabetical order within each grouping.

Both reports list the assessment items for each subject in the order in which they have been defined in the subject's Assessment Items table.
