This page is where students will indicate to you the subjects they are considering taking the following year. This allows you to give the students feedback on whether or not you think the subjects are a good match for the occupations they are interested in, before they make their final selections. If you want to use Career Central for subject choices you need to make a manual export back in to Kamar. Your kamar administrator can do this.
On this page, please enter all the subjects that are available for the specified year level – ie if there is a year 10 subject called English, create it, and enter 10 for the year. You can also enter a subject export code – this is used if you want to export data for another program. If a subject is compulsory, you can select this as well – but be careful since there is no way to undo this.
Compulsory subjects will automatically appear when a student comes to make their choices.
A couple of really important notes: Once Students have begun selecting subjects, don’t rename the subjects in this screen, or change the subject’s export codes.
Only enter in the ‘Custom Code’ if you are setting up complex subjects (eg students must select one Science from a range of options but no more than two). This option will appear before the rest of the subjects are shown to students.
To set up Custom Subjects, scroll to the bottom of the page. There you will see a heading "custom subject requirements" and click on "new requirement".
Write in a code word eg Y11SCIENCE15 (year 11 science set up in 2015)
Select the year level
Select the minimum number of subjects the student must choose as well as the maximum number.
Write a short message for students to see.
Once the custom subject requirements are set you need to add the custom code to your subject page. Make sure it is exactly the same code that you set as the code word.
You can set up more than one custom code. Eg in some schools students need to choose a subject from each faculty. Or choose 2 Arts, 2 Technology and 1 language subject.
Note: You will be adding the subjects available at each year level but when students see the options on their page they will see the year above the one they are currently in. So a year 10 students will see the options you add for year 11.
