Students transferring to a Queensland school from interstate or overseas

The receiving school should:

  • submit an Application for credit transfer and/or relaxation of completed Core form (download from QSA website)

  • ensure the Application form is complete

  • attach authenticated copies of statements of results for previous studies

  • attach S1 printout generated by SDCS showing current enrolment

Transfer applications received in Term 4 can only be guaranteed to be processed in time for the July issue of the QCE.


Transfer students from another queensland school l.jpg

Transfer students from another Queensland school

In SDCS the receiving school enters:

  • the subjects undertaken at the previous school

  • provisional results for any subjects not continued as reported on the S1 printout from the previous school

  • the actual number of semesters for subjects studied at the receiving school

  • all semesters of Authority subjects undertaken over 2 years, for OP calculations.


Slide7 l.jpg

Transfer students from another Queensland school (cont.)

English and Chemistry results were provided by the previous school.

English and Chemistry were not continued at the receiving school.

The student began Geography at the receiving school for Semester 2.

The student changed from English to English Communication at the receiving school.


Ceasing learning for students who transfer out of a queensland school l.jpg

Ceasing learning for students who transfer out of a Queensland school

in SDCS for Authority and Authority-registered subjects:

  • indicate the number of semesters actually completed at the school

  • enter provisional results

  • enter a “Left early” date.

If a student transfers part-way through a semester, the receiving schoolshould report partly completed semesters when completed.

In SLIMS, enter a notional Sound for literacy or numeracy if applicable.


Slide9 l.jpg

Ceasing learning (cont.)

Enter a “Left Early” date.

Enter a provisional result for each subject.

Indicate the number of semesters completed.


Ceasing learning cont l.jpg

Ceasing learning (cont.)

For embedded and stand-alone VET courses in SDCS:

  • enter an outcome for each competency

  • enter “Yes” in the “Completed” column for each competency of “Other VET” courses

  • enter an end date that is before the “Left early” date for each competency.


Slide11 l.jpg

Ceasing learning (cont.), embedded VET

Ensure that competencies from the current syllabus are used.

Enter an outcome for each competency

Enter an end date that is before the “Left early” date for each competency.


Slide12 l.jpg

Ceasing learning (cont.), stand-alone VET

For each competency enter an end date that is before the “Left early” date.

For each competency enter an outcome.

Enter “Yes” in the “Completed” column for each competency of “Other VET” courses.


Reporting an accurate history of learning l.jpg

Reporting an accurate history of learning

Across all Queensland schools attended by the student, a true and accurate history of learning should be reported.

If a student transfers part-way through a semester, the receiving school should report that semester.


Slide14 l.jpg

Reporting an accurate history of learning (cont.)

The receiving school has correctly reported Semester 1 of the previous school.

By the end of Semester 2 the receiving school was reporting a Limited LOA for Maths B.

The receiving school has validly reported 3 semesters of Marine Studies started in Semester 2.


Slide15 l.jpg

An incorrect history

The student has left the school part-way through Semester 2 (30/08/2007).

Only whole semesters should be reported: in this case, one semester not two.


Finalising vet courses at the end of year 12 l.jpg

Finalising VET Courses at the end of Year 12

In SDCS a completed stand-alone VET course must have the “Complete” button ticked if all requirements have been met as well as:

  • an outcome for each competency

  • a “Yes” in the completed column for each competency

  • an end date for each competency.


Slide17 l.jpg

Finalising VET Courses at the end of Year 12

Tick the “Complete” button for completed qualifications.

For each competency enter an end date.

For each competency enter an outcome.

For each competency indicate that it is no longer being undertaken.


Transfer student continuing a vet course l.jpg

Transfer student continuing a VET Course

For students continuing VET courses across schools, the receiving school need only report those competencies delivered at the receiving school.

If all competencies are completed between the schools the final school should ensure that the “Complete” button is ticked.


Transfer student not continuing an embedded vet course l.jpg

Transfer student not continuing an embedded VET Course

Embedded VET courses (modules and results) that are not continued need to be entered into SDCS by the receiving school.

The receiving school should enter the previous school as the provider.


Transfer student not continuing a stand alone vet course l.jpg

Transfer student not continuing a stand-alone VET Course

The receiving school does not need to enter modules or results for stand-alone VET courses not continued at the receiving school.


Variable progression rate vpr l.jpg

Variable progression rate (VPR)

Some students may complete senior studies over a longer or shorter period of time than usual under a VPR arrangement.

The requirements and procedures for VPR arrangements can be found on the QSA website.

www.qsa.qld.edu.au/downloads/senior/snr_qa_mod_a-z.pdf


Slide22 l.jpg

VPR button is ticked.

Ensure the Cert. year is correct.

English was undertaken in 2006 and 2008.

The semester tabs open up to enter year and semester.

Biology was undertaken in 2007 and 2008.

VPR — Reporting learning over 3 years


Vpr two semesters in one l.jpg

VPR — Two semesters in one

A student may compress two semesters of study into one provided they genuinely undertake the learning and assessment.


Slide24 l.jpg

VPR – Two semesters in one (cont.)

Prevocational Maths has been completed in a single year.

Semesters 1 and 2 have been undertaken in Semester 1, 2008.

Semesters 3 and 4 have been undertaken in Semester 2, 2008.


Notional sound l.jpg

Notional Sound

If a student exits an English or Mathematics subject with a Limited or Very Limited Level of Achievement, literacy or numeracy requirements may be met if a single semester is assessed as a notional Sound.


Notional sound cont l.jpg

Notional Sound (cont.)

  • Use the student’s folio of work for a particular semester of an English or Mathematics subject and any other relevant information.

  • Use the exit standard descriptors as a guide.

  • Map the student’s achievements against the exit standard descriptors.

  • Retain one annotated student folio for each subject in each year in which a notional Sound was awarded.

To determine whether a student has met the requirements for a notional Sound in literacy or numeracy the school will:

Provisional statements l.jpg

Provisional statements

Provisional statements are generated in August and October each year for Year 12 students.

These need to be carefully checked by each student to ensure accuracy of personal details and learning.


Slide33 l.jpg

Provisional Statements (cont.)

Students should check spelling of names and correct address for posting of SEPs.

VET and other recognised studies will appear if reported at the time of issue.

Correct subjects and a true transfer history should be indicated.


Eligibility reports l.jpg

Eligibility reports

Eligibility reports are issued in August and October each year for Year 12 students and in October for Year 11 students.

These reports list students who are eligible for a Senior Statement (SS) or a Queensland Certificate of Individual Achievement (QCIA) and predict for schools QCE-eligibility and OP-eligibility based on assumed success in learning programs.

They should be read in conjunction with provisional statements or information in the students’ learning accounts.
