The Edval software suite is user friendly, and feature rich.

Our training days are designed to help you make the most of our products, especially new users.

Schools should ideally send at least two people to the three training days: D1, D2 and D3. It is best if this training is started before Term 3. These days need to be attended in this order, but not within a short time-frame, allowing time to digest the information effectively, and complete online training to check/help understanding.

The other pages on this site should answer all of your questions about our training in general, and what is covered during each of the different types of days. If you require more information, please contact us at training@edval.education.

One booking per school should be made by submitting this form Book training.

Schools on the full support package may be able to send trainees to this course at no additional charge, but this is explicitly by negotiation with Edval, and provided there is room in the course.

    Attendance at D1 

    After D1, all of the following need to be completed prior to D2:

  • Completion of D1 worksheet. Many people find that re-working the whole worksheet later on is very useful to their learning.

  • Submission of training data file with Yr 8 completed.

  • Complete the Moodle course, Introduction to Timetabling with Edval, including videos and tests. Please select -Submit all and finish- each time you go in. You are able to make any number of attempts, and it is not so much your score that we are interested in, but the fact that you have gone in and made a full attempt. The feedback for right and wrong answers is another key aspect of our helping you to learn.

  • Complete the Moodle course, Working with your etz file, while tidying up your own school file with regard to grid, faculty column, subject names, spread requests and subject teacher and room sets.
  • Attendance at D2

    After D2, all of the following need to be completed prior to D3:

  • Completion of D2 worksheet

  • View videos listed in Training Planner given out at D1

  • Completion of Test Yourself exams listed in Training Planner

  • Roll over your own school file

  • Do elective lines

  • Prepare your file for the next year by editing subject teacher data and sets, subject room data and sets, class structure

  • Check the validity of your file using Ctrl-Q
  • Attendance at D3

    It is expected that most schools will not be ready for this until Term 4.
    From after morning tea onwards, it is expected that we will be working on your own file.
