Please if someone could post all the curriculum and other changes to occur in version 17.3 as this might have a very time-consuming impact on those using SA-SAMS, and a preventative mindset regarding information capturing could be greatly beneficial.

  Incorrect Multi-Grade Class Selection
Posted by: SarelK - 10-30-2017, 09:37 AM - Forum: Free State : Errors, Omissions & Submissions Utility - No Replies

If you receive "Incorrect Multigrade Class Selection" as an error on your Data Omissions & Errors in SA-SAMS report, ensure that the following is done:

  1. On 1.1 School Details in SA-SAMS, ensure that the yes/no option has been set correctly as 1 or 2 under the Survey Details tab, under the Number of Classes section.

  2. Ensure that you have entered the correct number of multi-grade classes.

While you are at it, also ensure that there are:
  • no learners with subjects not linked to their current grade, under 12.1.18 View/Print Learner Subject Allocation, list of learners with subjects not linked to grade.
    (this might happen if you enroll a learner in a grade, assign subjects, later find that the learner was admitted in the wrong grade and merely rectify the grade and class)

  • there are no deviations on 3.15 Subject Registration Summary, unless you accommodate learners with various Languages of Learning and Teaching in single classes.
    (this information is useful to determine the LOLT and total number of learners per grade for NSC Exam Papers, Common Quarterly Test Papers, text book purchases, etc.)

Bug Gr. 7 : Term 3 : Technology Weighting : PAT2
Posted by: SarelK - 10-19-2017, 03:04 PM - Forum: 12. Curriculum Related Data - No Replies

This post is made with acknowledgement to TI Lebone at the Free State Department of Education EMIS Section, as well as the EMIS Section itself.

If you have already noticed that the PAT2 Term Weight % has been incorrectly set to 0 and rectified it, no action is required on your part.  If not, please follow the instructions below:
Important: DO NOT use the Auto Calculate function for Validation of any other Subject, unless instructed to do so by an EMIS Official or your SA-SAMS Trainer.

Problem: Grade 7 Technology Marks are calculated incorrectly, i.e. doesn't include PAT2 in the Term Mark calculation.

Impact on calculation of Marks:

  • Grade 7, Term 3 Progress Reports
