Page / ReportComment
Transcript DefinitionsThe Transcript Definitions page now includes a new section within Things to Print (TTP - for Score Translations. These values will be stored in the Cross-Reference (XRF) table and allow defining a required table and field value for a Test to print on the transcript. This allows users to define TTP to print Passed or Waived instead of actual scores. Also the Things to Print section now includes a "Use Score Translation" checkbox to allow setting the "Score" to the Score Translation defined in Score Translations. Also added logic to allow Test Exclusions (TEX) records to be defined, and adjusted the TTP pop-up for better alignment. Please note - the Test Exclusions and Score Translations logic will only apply to the newly designed 1-column transcript at this time.
