Qualification achievement rates (QAR): dashboard decommissioning and new reports
From 1 October 2018, Birst (My BI) will be decommissioned and the dashboards currently available through the BI Tools tab on the Hub will no longer be available.
As an alternative, we will provide you with QAR reports in Excel format. These reports will be available by the end of September for both the final 2016 to 2017 QAR and the in-year 2017 to 2018 QAR data. You will find your new reports on the Hub alongside the existing QAR data extracts.
To access these reports you will need to ensure that your Hub user role allows you to access the Data Returns page. These user roles are different from those used to access Birst. Please see the hub guide to user roles for more information.
The alternative reports will contain the same data as the current dashboards, but the navigation will be different. We will publish new guidance for these reports on the QAR webpage.
If you want to keep any of the QAR reports that are currently stored on Birst (My BI), please export and save these before 1 October.
We will also make the 2016 to 2017 final QAR reports available to Ofsted.
