Smarter Data makes gathering and reporting the RTO Quality Indicators easy and the data useful.
Smarter Data comes preloaded with the learner and employer questionnaires and allows you to choose a data gathering preference per survey; either manual point and click data entry, automatically compiling the data via email campaign to your learners and employers, or a survey link embedded into your website or LMS.
When it comes to compliance reporting you can choose a report identical to the original NCVER S.M.A.R.T. compliance report or the ASQA written report.
For RTOs who’d like to make the data more useful you can choose from a range of qualitative and quantitative reports. See written responses on how your RTO is perceived, benchmark you RTOs progress to see how your RTO is doing over time or perform comparative reports by qualification, unit, state, or by a custom group of your choosing.
Smarter Data is available either as a standalone annual subscription service or is included at no additional charge as part of ChalkPort Membership.
Many software providers promote themselves as delivering cloud solutions when really they just offer cheaper but much more unreliable software as a service (SaaS) delivered via a single standalone web server, putting your continuity of service and data at risk.
All registering bodies require compliance regarding the questionnaire’s that you use and the report that you submit. The data compliance requirements are about ensuring a consistent national format of the data gathered and reported and while the language of the registering bodies in some areas is limiting, they are not meant as anti-compete mandates forcing you to use a government funded (and now defunded) product (SMART).
Smarter Data comes with the Learner and Employer Questionnaires preloaded. The wording of the ASQA, TAC and VRQA data provision requirements allow you
to use any software to gather the quality indicators, so long as these questionnaires are used.
