The National Data Collection Model Diagram OPTIONAL

This diagram may help you to decide whether to include a student in the data collection.

Throughout the school year school teams use evidence, including discussions with parents/carers, to inform decisions about the educational adjustments that they make for students with disability.

For this data collection, you should have evidence that shows you have made adjustments1 or incorporated support within quality differentiated teaching practice for each student. This should cover a minimum period of 10 weeks of school education (excluding school holiday periods), in the 12 months preceding the national data collection.2

Is the student provided with an adjustment?

Is this adjustment to address a disability under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992?

Does the student meet the definition of disability under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and is there a functional impact of the student’s disability in relation to education?3

Does the school team have evidence to show that it has followed Disability Standards for Education 2005 processes, including consultation with the student and/or their parent or carer to identify the reasonable adjustment to be provided to the student, including where Support is provided within quality differentiated teaching practice?

The school team determines the level of reasonable adjustment being provided, including where appropriate, Support is provided within quality differentiated teaching practice3.

The school team determines the broad category of disability to be reported in the data collection for the student.
