Student Records and Results

Victorian Student Number (VSN)

The Victorian Student Register (VSR) contains identity information for each Victorian student. Currently there are more than 1 789 095 students’ details on this central database.

The VCAA relies upon the many school data entry officers who take the time to enter their students’ data correctly.

This accuracy is critical to the operation of the register when students move between schools and on to subsequent education providers.

Inaccurate data entry causes the VSR student identification and matching process to fail, resulting in an ‘exception’. Exceptions for government school students delay their access to the Ultranet.

Unfortunately, we have identified over 20 000 ‘exceptions’ in Term 1 this year. Most of these were generated by providers. Our VSN operations team will now work to resolve them.

We therefore urge your data entry officer to ensure that they follow the correct procedures for enrolling students onto the Student Management System (SMS) – for example, CASES21, SAS2000, Synergetic – and adhere to standard data quality rules.

It is essential that data entry officers fully understand the parameters when enrolling students onto the SMS.

The VCAA wishes to significantly decrease the number of ‘avoidable’ exceptions in future. We ask data entry officers to help us achieve this by ensuring that students are flagged correctly on student management systems when they are first enrolled.

Some examples student management systems are listed in the following sections.

CASES21 & SAS2000

If your school uses CASES21 or SAS2000, there are three options to use for the VSN field.

  • Enter the actual VSN, if known
  • N for ‘New’
  • U for ‘Unknown’

Only students new to Victoria (from interstate, overseas or prep) should be flagged as ‘New’. Every other student must have their VSN entered, or be flagged as ‘Unknown’ and the VSR will match the student based on name and date of birth. Some exceptions will still be raised owing to data entry errors such as spelling differences and changes to dates of birth.

‘Unknown’ means the student does already have a VSN but it is not known at this stage (it has not been passed on to you by the previous school). The VSR will match the student to the VSN based on their first name, surname and date of birth. If any of these details are different, the enrolment transaction will be sent to exception.

Only those students new to the Victorian system, such as interstate, overseas or prep students, should be flagged as ‘New’.

Synergetic

If your school uses Synergetic, there are two options to use for the VSN field.

  • New
  • Unknown

Only students new to Victoria (from interstate, overseas or prep) should be flagged as ‘New’. Every other student must be flagged as ‘unknown’ and the system will match the student based on name and date of birth. Some exceptions will still be raised owing to data entry errors such as spelling differences and changes to dates of birth.

  • ‘Unknown’ means the student does already have a VSN but it isn’t known at this stage (it has not been passed on to you by the previous school). The VSR will match the student to the VSR based on their first name, middle name, surname and date of birth. If any of these details are different, the enrolment transaction will be sent to exception.
  • Only those students new to the Victorian system, such as interstate, overseas or prep students, should be flagged as ‘New’.

TASS

The TASS system is set to default to ‘enrolled before – yes’. The drop-down menu must be used to change the enrolment status to ‘no’ for preps and those students new to Victorian schooling, i.e. students transferring from interstate or overseas.

‘Enrolled before – No’

Only those students who are ‘new’ to Victoria, such as overseas students, interstate students and preps, and starting school for the first time in this state should be flagged as ‘enrolled before – No’ and the VSN field should be left blank.

‘Enrolled before – Yes’

Every other student who has been at a Victorian school must be flagged as ‘enrolled before – YES’ and the VSN entered, if it is known. If the previous school hasn’t passed the VSN onto your school, the VSN field can be left blank and the VSR will automatically match the student with their VSN, (provided the personal details match what the previous school entered).

If your school is using other student management systems, such as Maze, Delta-Link or SchoolPRO, please contact your software representative and ask them for a manual or guide to the correct enrolling procedures.

The VSN Operations team are working to ensure that exceptions are cleared as quickly as possible. If you have any questions regarding exceptions, please contact the VSN Operations Team:

Changes to VCAA fees and charges for 2012

VASS Administrators and VCE and VCAL Coordinators are reminded that VCAA fees and charges increased effective Monday 12 March 2012, as advised in Notice to Schools 21/2012.

Summary Schedule of Fees and Charges

The new approved fees and charges differ from those previously published in the Summary Schedule of Fees and Charges on page 168 of the VCE and VCAL Administrative Handbook 2012.

The Summary Schedule of Fees and Charges in the online version of the handbook has been updated. If they have not done so already, VCE and VCAL coordinators are asked to:

  • take note of the new 2012 Summary Schedule of Fees and Charges and inform all relevant staff of the changes
  • insert at page 168 of each print copy of the VCE and VCAL Administrative Handbook 2012 a copy of the revised Summary Schedule of Fees and Charges. (The revised summary can be found on page 168 of the online version of the handbook.)

Forms

All VCAA forms relating to a service for which a fee applies have been republished stating the new approved fees and charges.

Any form relating to a service for which a fee applies that is submitted to the VCAA must now be accompanied by the new approved 2012 fee for that service.

If they have not done so already, VASS administrators and VCE and VCAL coordinators are asked to:

  • print and disseminate the updated VASS-based forms to relevant staff, campuses and external organisations delivering to students enrolled at their school

Assessor training meetings: information for schools

The VCAA provides principals in schools with information about the appointment of staff from their schools, the dates of assessor training meetings and the availability of casual relief teacher (CRT) payments to secure the release of staff. In requesting that the school agree to the release, the principal can acknowledge the professional development benefits as well as the commitment required to do the work in very tight timelines.

If an offer of appointment is made by the VCAA, school-based staff undertaking these VCAA activities in school hours are advised to ensure that their release has been approved and confirmed with their school. Teachers should be aware that the VCAA may need to contact their school for administrative or audit purposes.

Where release is required from school duties to attend training meetings, a CRT payment is made available to the home school (as given by the assessor in their application registered on the online application website SSMS) to gain the release of the teacher from their duties and to cover the absence.

Where release is not required from school duties a payment for attendance at the training meeting is made available to the assessor.

Enquiries can be directed to Marlwood Ryder on (03) 9225 2302 or email: ryder.marlwood.f@edumail.vic.gov.au.

Languages written examinations - Section 3: word ranges

Each VCE Language study design specifies a word range for Section 3 of the written examination. This word range is a guide to the appropriate length of response for the suggested time. When student responses to this section are assessed, the whole response will be considered against the criteria.

Physics written examination - question numbering

Teachers of VCE Physics should note that the numbering of questions in Section A of these examinations will change in 2012. Questions will continue to be grouped according to the information to which they relate, but they will now be presented in multiple parts, for example, Question 1a, Question 1b, Question 1c. This numbering style will be consistent with other science examinations. While the total number of questions given on the examination cover will be reduced, the overall length of the paper will remain the same. For further information please refer to the cover of the examination, which will be published on the VCAA website at the beginning of Term 2.

For further enquiries please contact Simona Wengritzky on (03) 9225 2357.
