Which report writing software is the best, in your opinion????

    We have decided to write our own reports this year instead of using software as we are worried about them sounding too 'samey'.
    However, we have not completely ruled out using software and so I wondered which one people rated as being the 'best'?

    The software inside the human brain is the best.

    Believe me.

    You are making the right decision.

    What your report software can say in 1000 words, you can say in 100. And then you can use another 400 to actually say something really useful and informative for parents, and probably save time over any software.

    Anything that allows you to use a mix of comments and own text is best IMHO!

    We use scholaris (online) directly to suit that purpose!
     
  6. shelleymccuk: You could try our software: ReportBuilder

    There is a free trial download at www.ApplePanic.com

    You can use statement banks or just type freely in the editor. We have just added 'tick boxes' that you can mix anywhere in the report.

    You can cut and paste between pupil reports and the program will automatically do gender and name conversions - there is an animated gif demo of this on the website.

    We do not charge for updates and support is free for the life of the product.

    But don't just take our my word for it...

    Andrew Ross (from www.ptuk.info) game it his 'thumbs up' in his online review:

    This is how he went on completing his reports:

  7. I have started a new report package called "Elementary Reports", I need "beta" testers to try out the program, give suggestions, etc.

    If anyone wants to try it out and give me feedback, influence the way the program works... please see www.ElementaryReports.com

    Thanks,

    Anthony
