This is a particularly significant update. It contains a host of major new features and several improvements, including the provisional 2019 Attainment 8 Estimates. The full changelog can be downloaded from https://www.4matrix.com/files/change/22.214.171.124.pdf
1) Importing data into an existing series causes an error on completing the import (workaround = import into new series)
2) Key Stage 5 Subject Value Added charts not populating with pupils
3) Importing a Missing Qualification causes an error and fails
4) Using the Set Prior Attainment Band option in Edit Markbook for current Y11 is not working as expected
4Matrix is year/cohort based and so it expects the pupils in Year 10 last year to be in Year 11 this year etc.
Whilst it is possible to go against this model and create a mixed year series (by combining relevant pupils in a spreadsheet for import) this will cause complications in 4Matrix when it comes to calculating headline measures. All pupils in the series will be included in analysis and treated as the year that they have been imported into. For example, importing current Y11 (2016/17) and Y10 (2016/17) into the same series will cause complications with subjects that use number grades, especially if you use mixed year-group classes.
