FAQs

Where is my group?

Your schools OTrack admin (usually your headteacher) may need to give you access to the correct year group, class or group. If your admin has confirmed that you already have the correct access, please read the FAQ below.

Set group or custom group?

Set groups are used if you teach pupils in ability group. So, for example, you may have a group called Maths Set 1 and another called Maths Set 2. You can filter these pupil groups into the OTrack assessment screens and in OTrack reports and analysis.

Custom groups are similar to contextual groups such as FSM, pupil premium and EAL etc. So, for example, you may have a group that identifies pupils that live in a particular area of your catchment or who have had access to an intervention. You can filter these pupil groups into OTrack reports and analysis only.

Why can’t I add a class?

If you can’t see ‘Classes’ as an option in the ‘Group Type’ drop-down, this means that your OTrack account is connected to your schools MIS. You will need to add the class to your MIS and this will sync with OTrack that evening.

Why can’t I edit a class?

There are two reasons why you may not be able to edit a group. Either:

  • your OTrack account is connected directly to your school’s MIS system. If this is the case, then you will not be able to edit a class group. You will need to edit the group details in your MIS, it will then sync with OTrack overnight.
  • or, you don’t have the correct permissions to edit class groups, specific group and set groups. If this is the case, please contact your OTrack admin (usually your headteacher).
