The school can generate CCE report online with simple menu available in PenPencilEraser. Here’s how the CCE Report works
Creating CCE Groups & Sub Groups:
Group is a way to define segments of a CCE Report. For instance, you can create group of your school standards named Academic, Life Skills, Co curricular Activities and so on. Under each group, different elements may fall which could be defined in the sub group section available next to Groups in the CCE dashboard.

Discussing Drawbacks of Free school software:
Free version or completely free software is available in all categories with their own advantage and disadvantage. The real benefit of software is always packed in a pro version. Here in this article, let us discuss the pros and cons of setting up a school software at free of cost.
School is one of the places where high volume of data management with 100% accuracy is mandatory. Handling hectic volume of data in this era does not make sense due to the advancement in technology. Installing software and relying upon the data feeds is common today but the way the date is managed in free and paid versions of a single software is different.
The first visible difference between the two is the technical support rendered over phone or email and even with remote assistance. Many online school management system appoint personnel who give remote support to instruct customers on the go to use the software to the fullest. This feature is perhaps a greatest missing factor in free version of software.
The second prominent difference is the limitation offered in accessibility. User of free version suddenly experience a restriction at any features while the paid version users reap the complete advantage of the software. The limitations are certainly to build the revenue of the software owned company. Until the limitations, these companies do not earn the return on investment. This invitation to limited access of the software let customers use the advantage of the software in free mode and understand the advantages of paid versions. It is a simple marketing method adopted by 90% of downloadable software and web based software.
The third major disadvantage is the unexpected failure of the system where the software do not promise to backup data and/or help in retrieving the data used in free version. This system do not meet the high requirement of prompt data on the software which makes the data management further complicated and chaotic in case of accidental damage or limitation. Hence at a school, where data of students, parents, teachers, staffs and curriculum is managed everyday at utmost accuracy should not take a risk in implementing and relying on free software for costly data.
Almost all paid software let users pay on monthly and yearly basis. Hence, it is easier to try the pro version for a month and then decide to continue on further activation. You also have provisions to try the demo version of school software before signing up permanent.
