How do I use the nested If Then Else formula?

The nested If Then Else formula needs to be followed as below to ensure that expected results are shown.

To create a nested If Then Else formula, you first need to include in the Template the column(s) you wish to compare.

Example:

Template name: English Targets – Year 6

Aspect: English Achieved | Result Set: Year 6

Aspect: English Target | Result Set: Year 6

Under Tab 2 “Template Columns”, select New (on the right hand side).

In this example we will select “Add a Column for Data Review using formula”

Enter a Heading for the Column eg “NITE – Eng Target Yr6

Formula Type – choose Nested if then Else

Then make the following choices

IF Column English Achieved

Comparator >

Column English Target

THEN – (Constant Value) Above target

(Colour) Green

Else IF (Constant Value) English Achieved

Comparator =

Column English Target

THEN – (Constant Value) On target no cause for concern.

(Colour) Orange

Else IF (Constant Value) English Achieved

Comparator <

Column English Target

THEN – (Constant Value) Below target needs monitoring.

(Colour) Red

 

Repeat within the Template for different Result Sets or Subjects as desired. If you wish you can compare the column against a mark or grade rather than another Aspect

In Tab 3 “Marksheets” – assign a marksheet to the template (click on new on right hand side). In this scenario we will choose Year6.

Open the marksheet, click on calculate and Voila !
