Survey Tags provide schools with the flexibility to meet their priorities.

1. Click on Surveys->Configure Surveys


2. Click the 'tags' tab at the top of the page and enter your new tags in the box provided. Below is an example of how a school could use Student and Special Education Tags.


You can also use Student Tags (not Special Education Tags) for Student-Class Pairings.


Student Tag Examples:

  • Young for Year Group
  • Medical
  • Funded (Level)
  • Composite/Split Class YES
  • Composite/Split Class NO
  • English/Literacy Support Program
  • Math/Numeracy Support Program
  • High Achievers Program
  • Supportive Parent/Family
  • Challenging Parent/Family
  • Priority Placement
  • Music Program
  • Arts Program
  • Sports Program
  • G & T program
  • Ethnicity
  • Religious Considerations
  • Requires Meeting with School
  • Office Use Only (Coded)
Student Tags are not taken into account by the Class Creator sorting algorithm unless they are used for Student-Class Pairings.

  • Language
  • Physical Disability
  • Intellectual Disability
  • Hearing Impairment
  • Vision Impairment
  • Deaf/Blind
  • Mental Health

Other Ideas:

  • Funded Support
  • Not Funded Support
  • ESL/EAL/ESOL Support
    (It's better to use the ESL Section in Class Creator Survey)
  • Gift & Talented

The Class Creator algorithm does take into account Special Needs when placing students. However, the sorting is done using the "Support Required" data fro the surveys, not the tags. Special Needs Tags are for identification purposes only. 

If you have any feedback/ideas in regards to the use of tag please let us know:
