     New Student ID Creation

    • Must be 9 digits
    • First space or two will be campus code (above)
    • Add zeros in front of the student school ID if needed to make 9 digits.

    Example of New Student ID Number

    Pflugerville ISD Student with a School ID number of 777777

     PF         +           0                  +      777777        =  New ID PF0777777

    Campus Code + Zero to make 9 digits + Student ID number = 9 digit CATEMA ID

    On the New Enrollment page, students “enroll” in their classes. They should continue until they have created records for each of their ACCTech classes.

STEP 3: Verify Students’ Records

Once students are “enrolled” in a class, teachers must “accept/verify” them in that class.

  1. Go to sites.austincc.edu/acctech, click on CATEMA blue button.
  2. From the Teacher Task Menu, Select View Class List.
  3. To “Accept” students, click the blue arrow button in “Students” box; on the right side of each class record listed. (The numbers in the Student column represent the number of students pending your acceptance, accepted, not yet rated, and students recommended).
  4. On the class Roster of students, you may:
    • Click the student # to correct student applications if necessary,
    • Click the Student name to view/edit personal information; and
    • Select ‘Yes’ to accept/approve him/her for that class.
  5. Click Submit when you’ve approved one or more the students, and then click the Review Classes link (top right) to return to your list of classes.

STEP 4: Rate Students/Make End-of-Class Recommendations

  1. Go to sites.austincc.edu/acctech, click on CATEMA blue button.
  2. From the Teacher Task Menu, Select View Class List.
  3. For each student enrollment record, make your Credit Recommendation on the class roster for each class. If applicable, complete student competency profile ratings, and enter grades. Records must be rated/completed before the end of the system school year.
