edge integration with PaCT judgment data
edge integration with the Progress and Consistency Tool (PaCT) supports teachers recording their judgments about student progress and achievement in relation to our New Zealand Curriculum National Standards. Once your school has registered with PaCT, it will be possible to integrate edge with PaCT.
Process for setting up PaCT integration for assessment data with edge
Before beginning to set up for PaCT, ensure ENROL is up to date for your school, as once the MoE Service Desk sends the invitation, the PaCT automatically imports student data from ENROL. Once the PaCT set up process is complete, the nominated School PaCT Administrator will have rung the MoE Service Desk and requested them to enable login to PaCT.
To view or select a teacher judgment in Teacher View, see National Standards in Assessment Data Entry.
Log in to the PaCT website
Navigate to Manage > Settings > Configure SMS and select MUSAC edge.
If your school chooses to automatically import the OTJ data from the PaCT into edge, click the radio button "Yes, please use the same settings as above" and click "Save changes".
You're now ready to integrate with edge.
Only Interim and Final results are supported and display in edge. Any Ad hoc results imported and stored in edge can be accessed in the export file.
For "Interim" and "Final" selections from data entry, both have the two options of PaCT teacher judgment, or Teacher OTJ.
Whenever any changes are made to the above PaCT settings, eg. turning on/off the automatic update of judgment data, in edge configuration for PaCT, you must click "Regenerate Secret" or you may see a "Your OAuth signature was invalid, please ensure.... message".
With edge Assessment Co-ordinator user responsibility, navigate to Admin > Import/Export > e-asTTle, NZCER and PaCT. From the Manage PaCT tab, tick the "Automatically integrate with PaCT" check box and click "Save Changes. Once saved, the PaCT options display.
PaCT can be either automatically synced or manually synced. Once the "PaCT Integration Settings" box is checked and saved, PaCT integration is enabled automatically syncing edge with the PaCT every week, or 1 week after the last sync.
By clicking the “Sync Now” button, this performs a manual sync with PaCT.
The date of the last successful upload and download are displayed together with a confirmation of synchronised files message.
You have the option to select which roles, groups or classes are to be included in the file.
Students are automatically in the file, but you can include Teacher roles and Parents. In the PaCT role settings, "Teacher roles" is broken down into check boxes for Teaching Staff or Non-teaching Staff.
The student HomeGroup is mandatory in PaCT (either vertical or horizontal group).
You can also include other Group Memberships. This includes subject classes (yr 7-8) and Groups (Learning Groups only).
You can download your results as a csv file by clicking "Download Results".
IDE uploads are manually uploaded files from the PaCT tab by your Assessment Co-ordinator.
Once edge has synced and a student has teacher judgments in PaCT, navigate in Achievement to the National Standards data entry page and select a judgment for your student using the PaCT Judgment column.
