  1. Student Data Export - Mass Export and add data fields

    I am suggesting that the student's enrollment/withdrawal dates be added to the "Data Export - Attendance and Enrollment" report. Currently it looks like the "Count Inclusion for 3rd fri sept" column is blank for students who either WD before the 3rd Friday, or enrolled after the 3rd Friday. But this makes it difficult to identify "problems". For example; I have 4 students who enrolled on the 1st day of school and were present on the 3rd friday count date, and who have a "blank" in the "Count Inclusion for 3rd Fri Sept" column. To identify/audit I need to look at…

      • Errors due to ethnicity/name changes

        Not to generate an error when the transfer district enters a different ethnicity or hyphenates last names. A warning that we could acknowledge seems more appropriate.

        • Create option to export all the the validation messages.

          There seems to be no easy way to export the errors and the corresponding students the errors are attached to. The ability to export this information would be helpful when trying to clean up errors. I've been expanding each error and using the "printkey" tool to print this out so I have something to work with.

            • Student transfers out of state and back withdrawal codes

              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.

              • Validation Message on Student Profile

                From the validation messages, when you click on student details, have the validation message also appear on the student information screen. (Similar to ISES).

                  • DPI assistance with Errata Letters

                    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…

                    • 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.

                        • Ideas from Madison

                          From Madison:

                          1. DPI program ignores enrollment start dates and end dates that are in the future. Just don't add them to the wise data system
                          2. Ethnicity changes between districts all the time. Have that be a warning not an error.
                          3. Need to be able to delete enrollments that are an error or something. Once they are deleted from IC, some are not delete in the DPI site. I have a lot

                          4. Getting this error:
                          Credential type is not expected when the exit type does not equal HSC, High School Completion. For Private Schools, the studentAcademicRecord should…

                          • Ethnicity Errors

                            Would be great if ethnicity differences between schools could be a warning NOT an error. This can change from school to school for various reasons. Thank you.

                              Please add totals to the Data Quality Indicators. Currently the district has to total each metric manually to get the total for the district for the collection.

                                  Please consider delaying your Jan. 14 pull date for data. Some of us also work on the 2nd Fri. Membership report and having these two deadlines so close together seems challenging.

                                      I suggest making the 6478 message a warning instead of an error, unless related to a DOS code.

                                      • Show school name instead of district name on sped validation messages

                                        On special ed errors, we would like to request that the actual school name is listed under the school column on the validation messages instead of the district. This will allow our non-instrumentality charter schools to identify their errors more efficiently.

                                        • Error requrest

                                          Is there a way that an error can be posted if a student is being reported in Special Programs in our SIS but not counting for Oct 1st in the wisedata portal? For instance we had a student that has a special program but when we check the child count export from the wiseportal the student is not reporting and states SWOD. We think this has something to do with our dates, but yet we have no error and would not have know about this student unless we double checked SIS export to Wiseprotal export.
