    • ACCESS Scores in WISEdata

      Please alert districts via email on the date ACCESS scores have been loaded to student records in WISEdata so that districts can coordinate their data in the SIS side. Timely coordination helps avoid errors in validation.

      Future published upload date on a DPI calendar would be helpful.

      • Search by either last or first name and birthdate

        I used to find it helpful to search a student by their first name and birthdate only to make sure I am looking at all possibilities for a match. For example. if a student has two last names and I don't enter them in the right order. Or if a parent enrolls their student with a non-legal last name. We just had our Human Resources person discover that she requested new WISEids for young staff members because she didn't know their former last names. At least if you have a match on first name and birthdate, you could check further…

        • Better Search

          When you go to search/edit and type in a student's name it would be great if the system would look for names that start with the letters typed in. For example, last name of Paepcke, if you type in the first name and the last name = Paep, a child with the last name of Bebo shows up. Sometimes I am unsure on how to spell the name but can guess, without the full name it is hard to search for students.

          • WISEId Status Bar

            Suggestion-the WISEid status bar
            Would it be possible to make the WISEId status bar larger and appear more in the middle of the page to make it more noticeable?

            • Add associated district to Modifier in Person Change HIstory

              In the Person Change History for a student, would it be possible to list the district the Modifier is associated with? When tracking down who changed something it would be nice to be able to easily see the district who made the change.

              • Email notification when a message/change request needs my attention

                When a message/change request comes to my agency, I would love an email notification. Often times the seven days has come and gone before I even have a chance to see it.

                • Duplicate request notification

                  Notification about duplicate reports being approved or denied to requesting agency. As they would need to know if the change went through to correct their SIS information.

                      If Comments are limited to 250 characters, I wish it would not allow you to keep typing. It's hard to try to figure out how much you have to delete so it will fit. Thanks.

                        • Additional report options

                          Have additional options for reports. Example: Teacher, then a choice to pick mentor, etc.

                          Also, for coaches. I would love to be able to print a report and give it to the athletic director for review.

                            Please put the assignments in alphabetical order instead of by license code. It would be a lot easier to find "reading" than looking up the code (316).

                                • Ability to Separate Auto-matched Students

                                  Ability to separate students that automatically match but are different kids. Or for the system to look at more fields to match information before automatically grouping them under the same WISEid.

                                  We have students automatically matching to students from other districts due to their first name, last name, and date of birth matching. It is causing errors for both districts since they end up with the same WISEid imported back into the SIS.

                                  • Entry of information

                                    It would be great if no one was able to add punctuation within names.
                                    Example: St. Louis
                                    middle initial - M.
                                    If entry was uniform there wouldn't be so many duplicates.
                                    thanks

                                    • Last Enrollment Information History

                                      In Last Enrollment Information, it was helpful to have the movement of the student all the years in school? Right now you can only see the Last Enrollment Information. It helps me as a Registrar, especially when the parents don't tell you all the schools the students have attended and trying to get records. It helps at the High School level with suspicious expulsions as well. The movements tell you things and seeing them is helpful.

                                        Thank you for the feedback. We at DPI understand the need to track enrollment. You are able to find enrollment history using the WISEdash for Districts tool. (Login to WISEdash for Districts is through Secure Home https://apps2.dpi.wi.gov/secure/home). The WISEdash for Districts tool now provides current enrollment information sent to WISEdata via your SIS, but be aware, however, some districts are still working to get 2016-17 enrollments reported through the WISEdata system.

                                        DPI is still analyzing if and what enrollment information is appropriate to display within the WISEid application.

                                        Hope this helps!
