OZCAAS Counting Down

As of today, OZCAAS will count down the days until it stops working, unless you have updated it to its most current version.

You can find the most up-to-date version in the private area behind your Dashboard login. If you see a red count-down timer, simply update the software and it should stop the problem.
Steps:
1. Login to Dashboard with your login
2. Select ‘Numeracy/Literacy private area’
3. Select OZCAAS on menu
4. Follow instructions on page.

If you cannot access the private area, please be in touch with our office (quicksmart@une.edu.au or 02 6773 2983).

You will need to update the OZCAAS on a yearly basis.

2016 Data Submission

We are currently gearing up to start producing School reports from data provided by QuickSmart schools. We want to assure you that there is no deadline for data submission. You do not have to submit the data to us before the end of the year, or even early in the New Year. We want you to be able to give your QuickSmart students the optimum length of time on the program before doing the post-testing.

In past years certain schools may have been given an early deadline for data submission. That would have been in order to enable us to provide reports to the appropriate funding group(s) and we do not have any of those requirements this year.

If you want to continue some of your students into 2017, it may be an idea to do a mid-test before the end of the year. Then, if the student(s) are unable to continue next year for any reason you can use the mid-test as their post-test. It is very helpful to us if you can enter the attendance data into the “Other” page for your QuickSmart students, as we look at how much instruction students receive and we can only do this when it is filled in.

If you have any queries regarding the program or the data, please contact us on quicksmart@une.edu.au or by phone 02 6773 2983.

We wish you all the best for the mad rush to the end of the year and look forward to continuing the QuickSmart journey with your school.
