The WALNA format for collection of NAPLAN student data (Student details inc Ethnicity and Language – as well as Care Giver Language, Education  and Occupation details)  has changed slightly this year. If old versions of PCSchool are used to generate the file then it will be rejected by the upload web site. The change is that student year levels must now be supplied as a 2 character entry where the first character, if blank, is shown as a “0” (zero eg  07, 09, 12)

Creating a WALNA NAPLAN data File

Note: PCSchool will now produce this field in the desired format, however if the file is viewed in Excel and Saved then the leading zero will be stripped. If loading in Excel then when opening the file declare that it is comma separated and find the year level column and format as “Text” to protect the leading zero.
