Abraquest Release 188.8.131.52 introduces new reports for class and pupil
It has been a busy week for Abraquest. Abraquest release 184.108.40.206 is almost upon us which introduces new reporting capabilities to monitor pupils and class reading.
Since 220.127.116.11 was released last week we have had a number of small releases - 4 in total, which corrected small problems for one customer or another. We usually avoid that situation by releasing to individual schools that need it because it means that some schools will have installed a release every day last week!
Anyway 18.104.22.168 is almost upon us - it should be released later this week. This adds seven new reports to allow pupils and classes to be reported on.
For those not familiar, Borrower History was an existing report, the other three are the new ones.
The new reports can be split by Male or Female, which allows boys to be measured against girls if required. For example you could have a class competition boys vs girls for who is going to read the most books in a term. This was actually asked for by a school, so a free months Abraquest Software Assurance will be going to them also.
As always, reports can be printed or emailed, or exported to a number of formats including PDF and Excel.
Abraquest updates such as this one are free to all schools that have Abraquest Software Assurance.
We welcome all feedback via the usual channels.
