I was recently appointed as AHT i/c data and evaluation. The previous postholder was very good at using spreadsheets to produce reports for departments. Although I have all the spreadsheets that they used I am not really sure of how to adapt them. I don't really want to spend my time trying to understand the code that they used and wonder if there is an easier way. The data manager here is very good at using the systems that we have. I would like to develop them further but am not sure of the best approach. I also don't want her to think I just want to change what she does. I would rather be able to find something that I can show makes the work easier, particularly collecting information twice a term amd producing reports. My aim is to focus on inspection issues rather than spent time analysing data which is what the last postholder seemed to spend a lot of time doing. What do other AHTs use to track and analyse progress? Are there ready made programs that I can use?
