The transition from paper observations to eyLog should be very smooth. You do not need to transfer over any paper based observations to eyLog, observations until the day you switch to eyLog would be on paper and once you start using eyLog, the observations will be on-line. The progress made by the child can be transferred to eyLog through a single 'baseline observation' in which you would record the current progress of the child against each area/aspect. This can be completed on day one or at any later point in time as well.
See the 'Making a Baseline Assessment' document for more information.
