  1. Student NAME in Disc Action Export Download

    In the Discipline Action Export, it would be great if the student NAME would be listed.

    • Data Quality / Validation Result Doughnuts

      When viewing the Data Quality & Validation Results page . . . suggestion - keep the warnings out of the Student Error Rate doughnut. Warnings should be tracked in the warning doghnut and the errors should be tracked in the errors doughnut.

      When you combine acknowledge warnings in the Error doughnut . . . it is very confusing and it shows false information.

      Thank you for your consideration.

      • Discipline Behavior Detailed Descriptions

        It appears that Discipline Behavior Detailed Descriptions are published for all discipline records in WISEdata. However the DPI description of this field says that it is for firearm-related incidents (and is to be used with tracking behavior types & statistics on weapons in schools). If this is true then, can there be an algorithm or some type of enhancement implemented to keep only those behavior detailed descriptions which are associated to behavior incidents related to handgun, shotgun or rifle, or other firearm, rather than all behaviors being submitted to WISEdata.

        • Discipline errors: include common identifier on each main screen

          Discipline Errors: On the main error message screen, the Action ID is listed for a student. When you select the DETAIL and get switched to the next screen, the Incident Identifiers are listed. We have to look at each Incident Identifier to find the Action ID that is listed as an error on the previous screen. Is it possible to include either the Incident Identifier on the first screen, or the Action ID on the 2nd screen? Some students have multiple records and it is time consuming to figure out which record is in error.

          • In the WISEdata Event Calendar, we need the snapshot dates in a more visible color so it's easy to find.

            • List ALL disability codes instead of just primary

              It would be great to have a report that shows all disabilities, primary, secondary etc. As far as I know now we have to look at every child with multiple disabilities by hand to be sure they are all included.

              • Change attendance collection to more accurately reflect absenteeism

                I think that DPI needs to be more vigilant in the attendance that they are collecting. If we have students out on a field trip, yes, they are not in the building but they are in an academic status for a particular class. If we enter exempt, field trip, that should not be counted against a district. I believe that only actual excused and unexcused absences should be reported where the child is not in the building, attending a class. Please consider this as I was told that most districts are facing the same issue our district is a large…

                • DPI emails should exclude Acknowledged Warnings

                  We received another 'DPI Collection Snapshot Status ' email today from DPI. I would like to request that only 'Unacknowledged' Warnings be included on this report.

                  • 3rd Fri-Oct 1: errors vs. warnings

                    Error codes 6381 (3rd Fri Count missing) and 6601 (Oct 1 CC missing): These errors should be just 'warnings' until after the dates of these counts. For example: the 6601 error will occur until after the Oct 1 CC has happened...this would mean all our sped students will error out until after Oct 1. Once the date has passed (ie. on Oct 2), these should be considered 'errors'.

                            Allow school districts to keep the correct withdrawal code (TOS) in their SIS for students that move out of state and return back to WI during the school year. By having to switch the TOS to a TC, our SIS data does not truly reflect the student's movement.

                            • Clear Infos after validation

                              Since the magic Zero is the goal most of us are working to see, could the Informational Count be cleared after a validation is run? This was a feature in ISES that kept us just a little bit saner. :-)

                              Thanks

                              • Drill into Data Metrics for student names (similar to WISEdash)

                                It would be helpful to be able to drill into the actual graph data, similar to the WISEdash portal, to see the students pulling for specific areas - rather than having to export the file and sort/filter data every time we need to verify our numbers.

                                  So that schools can track changes for potential data errata letters, DPI should provide:

                                  1. A detailed listing of the validations that where in place at that time of the snapshot.
                                  2. A detailed listing of students that were enrolled over the 3rd Friday of September and/or October 1st child count dates from the snapshot data set. Include information on if the students where marked as countable or not for each count date.

                                  This would allow schools to continue to work to address validation messages now. The second file would be comparable to the export files available within the WISEdata…

                                  • Larger spreadsheets

                                    I'm trying to export attendance data for September 3rd Friday 2015-16 for the entire district. The display limits to show only the 1st 10,000 records. How do I export the data for all 70,000+ students? I need the full amount and having to break into smaller groupings is problematic. HSC only allows for 5000 lines.

                                    • Add Local Use Comments to Validation Messages

                                      Add the Ability to Keep Comments on validation messages so that Schools can keep tabs on gathered information needed for correction process other then in printouts or separate documents that are out of date in the next ten minutes. Inter-District validations allow comments to be shared with other schools that are receiving the same message

                                        • 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.
