The Tri-Border Project is an Australian initiative between the education jurisdictions of South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory, in conjunction with the Australian Government. The project has the objective of increasing the attendance, enrollment and engagement of highly transient indigenous Australian students in Central and Northern Australia across the borders of three jurisdictions. This objective is supported by providing consolidated student enrolment and attendance data to all schools involved in the project. Using the SIF Implementation Specification (Australia). - schools are provided with real-time access to accurate data, which helps each school tailor individual learning plans to students based on their enrolment and attendance history.

“Schools engaged with the project now have a greater understanding of the issues surrounding student mobility and transiency. They are engaging in activities that acknowledge student movement and are focusing on working collaboratively across jurisdictions to improve students’ attendance and literacy and numeracy performance. Immediate access to the shared collection of student data provides staff with insight into their teaching and learning needs” explains Karen Webster, Director, Curriculum & Student Services Support, Department of Education Western Australia.

Master Data Management is performed on the student data so that unique student records are created from multiple sources; providing teachers and school administrators with easy access to the full picture of a student; regardless of how many times the student changes schools or crosses borders. This Master Data Management is of great importance as it involves the transient population. Many learners move between jurisdictions within a given year. In addition, depending upon which jurisdiction the student resides, the name of the student may be different. Collecting and reporting all of the information about a student at any given time or location is critical in meeting their specific learning needs.

“The IMS global learning impact awards showcase the best in standards based ICT education projects”, states Daniel Ingvarson, Program Lead, Projects and Architecture of the National Schools Interoperability Program (NSIP),“we appreciate the opportunity to represent Australia and to have had such a positive recognition for the project team.”
