How to use ROCC

There are 2 components of the ROCC

  • The ROCC paper tool – Administration manual and Assessment forms
  • The ROCC online

Other information

The ROCC paper tool

Your ROCC subscription will come with a download link for the ROCC Administration manual and ROCC Assessment forms. Some will prefer this method of scoring and documentation and the assessment forms can be used as a hard copy summary document.

The ROCC online

The ROCC online is where the magic begins.

  • Schools or organisations can purchase a subscription for their site/business.
  • Anyone that is registered by a school or organisation (i.e. invited users through email address) will be able to enter ROCC scores for an individual and generate a profile graph.​​​​ Scores are saved and graphs can be generated to display progress or changes that occur across time.
  • ​​​​​​​Trained users can then ‘approve’ those scores and generate graphs for group data. Groups can take any form and can be defined by the user. For example, you might want to collate data based on classes, caseload groupings, age levels, type of system (e.g., aided v’s unaided AAC; PODD users; Proloquo2Go; eye gaze, etc) or by diagnostic category. It’s your choice to generate the data that is most useful to you.
  • ​​​​​​​In future, we will also build in the ability to autogenerate documentation such as:
    • Report templates – e.g. , NEP templates, NDIS progress reports or equipment requests
    • Documentation for families
    • Strategies to work on
    • To do lists and follow up items based on notes from the assessment

To come: ‘How to’ videos and cheat sheets for use of the ROCC online.

Naming your participants

To protect the privacy of your students, clients or other individuals, the ROCC data is encrypted and also stored on a secure Australian site.
However, we also feel strongly about privacy and confidentiality, so want to ensure all measures are taken. For this reason, we encourage you to use a a coding convention rather than actual names. The coding convention can be unique to your school or organisation, but we suggest the following:

  • Select a coding convention that is consistent across your organisation or school, and one that takes the least amount of effort (e.g. if you already have one in place, then use this one).
  • Select a code that you can recognise without looking it up. This will make your data entry and graphs much more efficient to read/interpret. If the code is enough that unfamiliar people do not know the name, but those who know the person can recognise the person, then you have an efficient coding convention.
  • Ensure that all users in your organisation know the coding convention so that there is consistency across your data.

Release notes – tips and tricks

Please note that this version of the ROCC is an introductory version released at introductory prices. Please ‘Contact Us’ with any feedback or bugs that you encounter

If you are looking for a paper version of the ROCC tool, this will be available for download once you login to the ROCC Online.

If a button is not selectable, click on the ‘Refresh’ button, or just cut and re-paste the email address to activate the ‘update’ button.

The ROCC is not optimised for the phone. It is able to be used on a tablet (preferably landscape mode) and on computer. You can use it on the phone but the layout is not yet optimised.

If you are running out of numbers for students, you can do one of the following:

  • purchase additional blocks of 10 participants
  • deactivate past users who are no longer affiliated with your organistion.
