luReportResultType lookup table


The luReportResultType lookup table is used to define the attributes of an assessment area.

For example, you want to specify that only certain values can be selected for entry against an assessment area. This can be done by changing the Mask field






Unique code used to identify the report result type.


Description of the report result type.


Used as the heading in Results Maintenance.

Is displayed in brackets with the area description or heading.


Restrict the value entered to a numeric value.

Allows a mask to be entered as ,0-100 and then allows any numeric value in this range to be selected.


Range of valid result values. Staff can only enter values within the range specified.

For example, an Override Mask of 0-100 restricts your values to between 0 and 100. You can have a numeric or alphanumeric result.

In most cases, it is a good idea to have a comma at the front of your mask. This allows you to select a blank value for the result. If you do not have the leading comma, you will have to enter a value for every student. Use a comma to separate each result value.

Note: You only have to select a Result Type when entering an override result mask if the results are numeric. In this case, select a numeric Result Type, for example MARK, as well as entering an Override Mask.

Numeric masks. For example:

  • ",0-10"
  • ",0-100"
  • ",80-0"

If the higher number is first then the numbers are in descending order, rather than ascending order.

You can also:

  • Specify a mask as 100-0(0.5). This generates a value list of 100, 99.5, 99, 98.5 ... 0. If you leave off the (0.5) suffix then the default increment is 1.
  • Force a fixed decimal place by specifying a mask such as 100.0-0(0.5). This generates a value list of 100.0, 99.5, 99.0, 98.5, 98.0 ... 0.0.
  • Specify a larger increment by specifying a mask such as 100-0(2). This generates a value list of 100, 98, 96 ... 0.

Make sure that it goes down to 0 (zero) so that even students who receive a 0 will get a grade.

Alphanumeric masks. If you want to define values like Beginning, Consolidating, Established then you set up these values as follows:

  • “,B|Beginning, C|Consolidating, E|Established”
  • “,G|Good, VG|Very Good, E|Excellent”

  • “,A+, A, B, B+, C, C+, UG”

The pipe (vertical bar) within each type indicates that the characters before it is the value stored in the database. Those characters (for example, B) and the description after them (Beginning) are displayed when you enter results. You do not need to use the pipe but it is recommended so that you are only storing B and not Beginning in the database for each result.

Also see How the combined result is displayed in the Assessments and reports manual.


Default value entered in Student Results Maintenance for the selected result type.

This is useful where most students receive a given result. For example, if using the SN result type (Satisfactory/Not satisfactory) all students would be initially marked with an S (Satisfactory). The result would be changed to N for any students whose performance was judged as unsatisfactory.


Adjusts how the assessment area is displayed:

  • in Results Maintenance
  • on the Community Portal.

The SynergyMeaning can be referenced by Crystal Reports.

Select the SynergyMeaning from the drop-down list.




Enter comments only in Results Maintenance. The results field is read-only.


In Results Maintenance, displays the assessment area:

  • in a bold font
  • with results being read-only.


Hide the areas from:

  • teachers using Results Maintenance
  • parents using the Community Portal.

Can be used for underlying calculation fields.



When defining assessment areas that apply a mask, you can use the Mark Out of field to set an upper limit to the results that can be entered. This minimises the number of masks that are required, if assessments have a different Mark Out of value.

In the following example, the Mark Book Mark 30 result type:

Not used.


Assessments for WAAR (Western Australian Assessment Reporting).

This does not link to external standards. It uses the targets set on the Targets sub-tab of the Subject Assessment Maintenance. See Subject Assessment Maintenance - Summary tab - Targets sub-tab in the Assessments and reports manual.


Specify the sort order of the report result types.


Select to allow the automatically expanded mask lookup table to be used. See luReportResultTypeMaskExpanded lookup table.


Used to determine how student results are displayed on the Community Portal at your organisation.

You can select whether to show the results in a table, called a rubric, or in a list. A rubric is a guideline for assessing a student's performance where the assessment and achievements are laid out in a table format, rather than a list, as shown in the example below.

You can:

  • Leave the field blank to show the results in a list.
  • Type AUTOCOMMENT to show only the description or comment about the result matched against the assessment item by the result.
  • Type RESULT+AUTOCOMMENT to show the result and a description or comment about that result matched against the assessment item by the result.
  • Type RUBRIC to show the results as a rubric.
  • Type RUBRIC+COMMENT to show a rubric and variable comment for the entered value. The comment used is the one entered against the assessment area comment bank.
  • Type STUCOMSELFENTRY to show a comment field for the student to type a self-assessment. See Enabling Self Assessments for a subject in the Community Portal manual.
