Resource Teachers Literacy 2017 Data Collection forms
Resource Teachers Literacy (RTLit) are specialist teachers who support and assist staff and students in years 0 to 8 who are experiencing difficulties with literacy learning.
Resource Teachers: Literacy Data Collection
On this page you will find information about this year's collection forms as well as instructions on how to submit your collection forms this year.
Data on students supported by RTLit are collected annually. The purpose of this data collection is to identify the nature of the support the RTLit provided to students during the year, and to report on students' outcomes and progress while receiving RTLit support. The annual report does not cover all aspects of RTLit work. It focuses on the outcome of the students who received the intervention.
In 2017, RTLit are requested to complete two forms:
- A Student Summary Spreadsheet: every RTLit is requested to fill this form in and return it using the School Data Portal (NOT email). You can ask your school administrator to use the Portal for you.
- A Cluster Overview Form: we will email a link to an online form towards the end of the year. Please choose one RTLit per cluster to fill this form in.
Changes to the forms from last year
We are sending out the student summary spreadsheet at the beginning of this year, so that you can complete it throughout the year. The majority of questions are the same as last year. We have modified, added and deleted a few questions that did not capture the data we wanted validly, and removed some validation to make the form easier to fill.
2017 Forms Are:
- Student Summary Spreadsheet: One form to be filled in for each RTLit. One excel form will contain data for all your students.
- Cluster Overview Form: This form will be online towards the end of 2017. You will receive an email with a link to the questionnaire, and only one RTLit per cluster is requested to fill it in, on behalf of the cluster.

Before the collection, you will need to:
- Gather the information you need
- At the end of the year, you will need to request access to the Schools Data Portal to submit the Student Overview Form, or talk to your school administrator to make sure they can do it for you.
