Q. Once I have created text elements can I choose the order and the text elements to use in a campaign?
A. Yes. You can create many different text elements and only include the ones you need in a campaign.

When setting up a campaign for Y8 you may include the text elements Target 1 and Target 2.

The order in which the statements appear can be decided when setting up a campaign.
Q. What is the maximum number of statements I can create for each text element?
A. You may create up to 100 statements for each statement/subject/year group. For example, a school with year groups 1 - 6 could create 100 statements for the text element 'Attainment' for Maths for year 1, 100 statements for the text element 'Attainment' for Maths for year 2, 100 statements for the text element 'Attainment' for Maths for year 3 etc... That's 600 possible statements for Maths, 600 possible statements for English, 600 possible statements for Science etc...
Q. Can I use carriage returns and bullets in a statement?
A. Yes. A maximum of 20 carriage returns are allowed per statement and any white space at the beginning and end of a statement is trimmed from the statement upon saving.
Q. The subject English wants to comment on reading and writing and the subject Maths wants to comment on algebra, shapes, long division etc.. How should I set up text elements to deal with this?
A. Subjects commenting on different areas of their subject are still reporting on a single text element. For example an English department commenting on reading and writing is still commenting on the 'Attainment' of a pupil, they are merely using the language of their subject to do so. When selecting statements it is possible to build a paragraph by adding a number of small statements rather than inserting a large single statement to create a paragraph. By creating many statements covering different subject areas the user can build a suitable paragraph.
