  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

          • 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.

            • Change Errors Messages 6375 and 6468 to Warnings

              Could both the future exit/enroll (Message Code 6468) as well as the overlap errors (Message code 6375) become warnings? It is good to double check our information but waiting on the other district can be time consuming.

              • Switching between applications

                Would be great to switch between applications easier. I work on WISEstaff, WISEid & in the WISEdata portal. Would be much appreciated if I didn't have to log into Secure Home each time.

                • Would love to see a timestamp on student data screen

                  Would love to see a timestamp on the student data screen of the last time the student data was changed/updated by a ed-fi transaction. This would be helpful in determining if the change we made in our SIS actually went through a validation. We make changes in the SIS trying different things to try to fix errors and are not sure always if that change was processed in time for the validation. Also would let us know if the particular change we made did not cause a ed-fi transaction.

                  • 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…

                    • Indicate field causing error

                      It would be great to have the name of the specific field that is causing the error in addition to the error description. So, if we go into WISE, click on the error, click on details, if the field was starred or a different color, or SOME way of indicating what the issue is. The general error descriptions are too broad to be of help in some situations. 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.

                          It would be nice to be able to print off the list of student names listed under a specific Message Code (for warnings, errors and information Message Types).

                          • 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…

                                      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.

                                        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.

                                          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…
