Education software developer Impromation has launched an eBook that takes a deep dive into what schools and teachers think of the NCDD and their concerns around the need for consistent data collection on students with disability.
What Schools really Think of NCCD explores the data revealed in the PWC audit, 2016 NCCD Continuous Quality Improvement Project which found that data collection requirements were often ambiguous and unnecessarily complicated.
While educators generally agreed that the NCCD has made positive contributions to the way schools and students have access to disability resources and funding by removing red tape and making student support more accessible, several several years after its implementation schools and teachers are still experiencing difficulties.
Areas that present the greatest challenges
- Implementing an approach that relies on professional judgement
- Use of the QDTP level of adjustment
- Deciding on category of disability
- Multiple data collections
- Time constraints.
CEO Michael Tunks said “When researching the market and industry for our latest product ezNCCD, we found that educators worry about managing NCCD data collection efficiently and the PCW report confirmed what our own research had found.
“ezNCCD takes that stress away. It supports collating data throughout the year through an easy to use interface with drag and drop capability to store student documents, photographs and anecdotal evidence in one central location.
“Security is paramount and read-only user settings allow safe sharing of student information, while automated reports and quick file uploads enable easy transfer of information and end-of-year roll over.”
