Edu.Dex

Edu.Dex from Praxis

The Edu.Dex data validation utility is a custom designed application that ensures that data transmitted within the Education and Training sector of South Africa conforms to the education and training exchange (Edu.Dex standard) standard.

 

The primary objective for the development of the Edu.Dex standard is to ensure that any learner registration related data that is transmitted from one information system to another system in batch format complies to the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) National Learner's Records Database (NLRD) Load Specifications.

 

The NLRD Load Specification has been developed for the transmission of data from an Education and Training Quality Assurance body (ETQA) to the NLRD Load Specification therefore does not specifically accommodate the transmission of learner registration data from and to other education and training sector stakeholders.

 

The secondary objective of the development of the Edu.Dex standard is therefore to provide the Education and Training sector of South Africa with a comprehensive standard, which complies with the NLRD Load Specification standard, for the transmission of learner registration data between all Education and Training sector stakeholders.
