Hierarchy and Student Numbers

Introduction

This article contains:

We have made a change to the behaviour of hierarchy data and associated student numbers. This improvement is to support:

  • Applying list student numbers from hierarchy data level.
  • Multiple module improvements in Talis Aspire Digitised Content (more information to follow in the coming weeks).

You can update student number associated with a Hierarchy node as part of a bulk hierarchy update (Hierarchy data format) or manually when you edit an individual node.

Creating a new list

When you create a new list you click 'Select Hierarchy' to add the list to an existing node in your hierarchy.
Select your hierarchy node

This then takes you to a screen where you can select one or more hierarchy nodes. If student numbers have been added at the hierarchy level these will display here also. These can be edited now or at a later time.

select your hierarchy node/s

The linked hierarchy node(s) display on both the list edit and list view screens as shown here.

On the List edit screen, the student numbers display for each node:

On the List view screen these display as a total.

In the modal you can add and remove hierarchy nodes and update the student numbers.

On saving this will update the numbers on the list but will not change the saved hierarchy node value, just value recorded on that list.

FAQs

Q. Am I able to edit the hierarchy and student numbers when I request a review for the list?

A. When a review is requested you are no longer able to edit the students numbers at the point instead the user is directed back to list to take this action.

Q. I can't find the exact module on the hierarchy I want to attach my list to.

A.If you're having difficulties locating a hierarchy node in the hierarchy search, use the node code as well as the node name. For example: where the Node code is "LL" and Node name is "Law", enter "LL Law".
