Class and Subject Results Grids View

Accelerus Icon

The main results window in Accelerus is results grid view. This view is available for each class, whether teachers are working in offline files or directly in the database.

It may also be activated for each subject when working directly in the Accelerus database, when a user has a school or subject level permissions to view and/or modify results.

The subject result grid seen by administrators and coordinators is the same view that teachers will generally use when assigning results to their students in their own classes. There are only some minimal differences but, to all intents and purposes, they look and function in the same way.

Likewise, the other class and subject results view, single student view, is the same no matter if being used for a class or subject, or even for an individual student.

Res ClassGridWindowNumbers


The table below gives an overview of the main features of the class results window, all of which are covered in more detail in the guides and videos available from the Accelerus website:





When a class or subject results window is open, the menu bar will display View and Results menus, which are otherwise missing. In addition, the File and Edit menus will contain extra options that apply only to the results windows.

Right click menus are also available for many of the options when working in the result grid.

The View menu allows:
Switching between results grid and single student view.
All or particular columns to be viewed, based on the column's assessment item tags or type of marking scheme.
The selection of any combination of assessment items to be viewed or hidden.
The columns to be reset into the order set up by the Accelerus administrator.
The format of the Student column to be customised, eg to display the preferred rather than the given name, to include the student's home group, etc.
The Results menu contains options in relation to:
Columns, ie sorting, showing or hiding, and locking locally columns.
Calculations, so that calculated results may be automatically recalculated or calculated when required.
Class assessment items, allowing teachers to add and delete their own class level assessment items.
Apart from the standard Edit menu options such as Copy and Paste, the Edit menu has options to fill up/down, find and replace, spell check, and undo/redo.
The File menu contains the following options that apply across the class or subject, including the standard File options available from all windows, such as Change Password:
Import, which allows teacher or school comment banks to be imported, depending on your school's settings and the permission levels of the user.
Teacher Export, allowing the export of student, assessment item and result data for the class to a CSV file.
Teacher Listings, with a range of listings being available for preview and printing, and the ability for class teachers to create and print their own student reports.


An additional toolbar appears when a class or subject results window is open, containing icons for the more common functions available in a class or subject results window.

Menu options exist for each of these icons, as well, and you may hover over the icon to display a tooltip informing you of its function.

Res GridToolbarMenu


The results windows are tabbed windows, with all of the same functions as all tabbed windows in Accelerus. The code and name of the class or subject is displayed in the tab. Also, where applicable, a red exclamation mark will appear when the window contains invalid results or a green pencil icon when there are valid, unsaved changes.


The title bar displays the code and name of the class or subject and, again, whether there are invalid or unsaved changes in the window.


The right side of the title bar displays the academic cycles that are currently selected. The class or subject must belong to one of the cycles displayed there.

The name of the school to which the record belongs is also displayed.


Below the title bar:

The code and name of the subject is shown, useful when working in a class window, to know the subject to which the class belongs.
The number of assessment items, or columns, that exist in the class or subject and how many of these are visible, eg 7 of 15 visible.


The student column displays the names of the students in the class. These will be displayed in alphabetical order, based on the family name.

The column will display either the given name or preferred name of the student. This will depend on a setting in the School Settings window - Comment default name format - chosen by the Accelerus administrator.

The fields displaying in the student column may be customised by teachers via View > Student Column Format.

In the case of a subject results window, an additional column appears beside the student column, containing the class of the subject that the student is enrolled in.


The results grid is where teachers enter student results. It contains a column for each assessment item that has been set up in the subject:

The assessment item column headings contains the code of the item and any icons that indicate any special features about the column, eg it contains a calculation, is a class assessment item, is locked, etc.
Fuller details about the assessment item can be viewed by hovering over the column heading, eg its full name and what type of results may be entered therein.

Res ColumnTooltip

Locked and calculated columns are shaded blue; class assessment items are shaded green.
Many operations may be performed on columns of data, with most options being found in the View menu, a right click menu or the toolbar, including:
Sorting data in columns in ascending and descending order.
Moving selected columns to different positions on the grid by dragging and dropping them to the required position.
Filling the data in one cell down or up to all other cells below or above it, respectively.
Hiding and showing columns.
Colouring and locking columns locally.


Where the results in the column use a list marking scheme, results may be either typed or selected from a dropdown list of the allowed values. The dropdown list contains both the results entered by the teacher and its displayed value.

Res DropDownResults


Along the bottom of the class window either a status bar or an optional panel will be displayed. To display or hide the panel, click its divider.

Res BottomPanelDivider

In the case of the status bar, seen above, where student photos have been brought into your school’s database, a thumbnail photo of the student currently being assessed is displayed. The thumbnail may be enlarged by clicking it in the status bar. Reclicking will hide it.

Also, details about the assessment items are shown.

When the optional panel is displayed:
The student's photo, if available, and further information about the student is shown.
Full details of the assessment item are displayed when the item has been created for the whole subject, including any calculations contained in the item.

When a teacher creates class assessment items, it is in this panel that they do so.


You may switch from a class results window to the class details window by clicking the Open class details icon in the top right corner.

Therein, you may view more details about the class and the subject it belongs to. Depending on your permission levels, you may also be able to modify data and enrolments therein, eg add more students, withdraw students, etc.

Res OpenClassDetailsIcon

An equivalent Open subject details icon appears when in a subject results window, taking you to the subject details window, where subject level functions may be performed, eg modification of assessment items, adding additional classes, etc, if you have sufficient permissions.


Every subject and class results window has two views: the results grid view, covered here, and single student view where the students in the class or subject are worked on one student at a time.

Clicking the tab icon at the bottom right of the results grid takes you to this view, as does an option in the View menu and pressing Ctrl T.

Com SingleStudentViewIcon

This view is predominantly designed to be used for the writing of comments for student reports, allowing teachers to link in with comment banks that provide a selection of comments and comment snippets that they may draw upon.

It may also be used to enter non-comment results, on a student by student basis, if the teacher wishes.


Along the bottom of the Accelerus screen is a status bar that displays whether you are working in a database or offline file and the location of these; the name of the school and the logged in user; zoom controls; and the Academic Cycle Selector.
