2 Potential Tasks
Credit Details Screen
Standardized Test Screen
 The basic BCeSIS TRAX logics are:
When a Prov. Exam. Course is added to a Student’s course selection, a
Standardized Test Record is created
When a Prov. Exam course is dropped, so is the Standardized Test
A course is added to credit details. A STR must be manually created if
the course is Provincially Examinable
Scenarios - Deferrals
 A deferral is when a student chooses NOT to write an exam at this time but MAY decide
to write the exam later.
Scenarios – Adult Refusal
 Refusal is an adult student that chooses NOT to write an optional exam
Scenarios - Rewrites
Adding Course to Credit Details
Student’s Homeschool not in BCeSIS
 It is the student’s homeschool’s responsibility to submit the TRAX
record for the student
 Enter marks or add course in Credit Details
 Enter a Standardized Test if applicable
 Set the reason to “Transfer”
Scenarios – Q-Codes
 For students that have taken a course outside of BCeSIS.
 Steps:
Add course(s) to Cr. Details.

into Standardized Tests.
