Minister McHugh announces opening of Calculated Grades Data Collection App for Schools
The Department of Education and Skills has today, Monday 8 June 2020, confirmed an online application system has gone live for schools to upload data for Leaving Certificate Calculated Grades.
The data collection application has been created for schools to enter the relevant data on Leaving Certificate students’ estimated percentage marks and class rankings.
The online system went live today at midday and will remain open until close of business on Friday 19 June 2020.
Minister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh TD said: “The opening of the online system for schools to upload data for Leaving Certificate Calculated Grades is another important stage in the process.
“I want to acknowledge the work of teachers, principals and school staff who are collaborating at this time to ensure that students’ estimated marks and class rankings are compiled and uploaded to the system before the deadline of Friday 19 June.
“I also want to take this opportunity to thank the students once again for registering with the system.”
Schools have been provided with a detailed guidance document Calculated Grades Data Collection Guide for Data Entry Users and Approvers on use of this system.
Schools have also been provided with a matrix document showing students and their subjects and levels.
A dedicated helpline and email address are available to support schools during the process.
Over 60,150 Leaving Certificate and Leaving Certificate Applied students have registered on the Calculated Grades Student Portal since it opened.
In addition, more than 3,000 Leaving Certificate Applied students who are in year one of their two-year programme have also registered, as they will be eligible to receive Calculated Grades in certain modules.
Students will be contacted over the summer when they will be given the opportunity to opt-in to receive Calculated Grades.
