All Regions – for sites using Synergetic v70 only

  • We recently identified an issue with the NAPLAN data export process, affecting v70 schools in any region of Australia. 

The issue impacts the export option that is used to restrict the students included to only those in Years 3, 5, 7, 9 and was causing all student year levels to be retained when this setting was used.
