Premier's Reading Challenge Post-Challenge validation

Process Overview

This two-step process can be used by schools to request the validation of one or more Student Reading Records (SRRs) after any Challenge from 2008 onwards has closed. This process is for students with INCOMPLETE reading records only. If you have students with COMPLETE reading records that need to be validated, please email the PRC team with the student details. 

Only students who will have a validated 2017 and/or 2018 SRR at the end of this process will be considered.

Step one: Principal applies for validation of SRRs

The principal enters:

  • The calendar year in which validation was missed - 2008 or later.
  • How many SRRs require validation - 1-5, 6-30, 31-100, more than 100.
  • The reason/s that the SRR/s were not validated.

If the application submitted in Step one is approved by the PRC team, schools may then proceed to Step two.

Step two: Principal or PRC Coordinator submits the SRRs to be validated

The principal or coordinator completes an online form for each student's SRR using the following information:

  • The student's SRN and DEC User ID - these can be found on the PRC website Student Details page.
  • The PRC ID, Challenge Level, Title and Author for each book read - these can be found in the PRC Booklist.

The estimated data entry time for each SRR is:

  • between 5 and 15 minutes if the PRC ID and Challenge Level for each book are known
  • up to 30 minutes if the PRC ID and Challenge Level have yet to be identified in the PRC Booklist.
