  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • DPI should create a new EXIT code for students Transferring to a school within the same district.

        Please add an exit code for students transferring within the district instead of TC. This may help with the Match Review process when WISEid opens and would be easier for districts to track since our SIS uses the same codes and would follow DPI.

        • 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!

            DPI should have a schedule for districts with all the reports listed and their due dates so districts can manage their workload more effectively. If it was like Sapphire where certain reports are in red and green so one knows when the deadlines are coming up etc…. then that would be great. Even having a pdf out there for districts would be very helpful where it is a one stop for all reports and the deadlines.

              We are working on a new landing page when you log in to the WISEdata Portal. The core purpose is to provide you with a better status of your data from vendors and status of validation (make that as clear as possible), but adding a panel that outlines deadlines for snapshots, etc. wouldn’t be a major item to add. We already have an ALERTS panel in the WISEdata Portal, would an alert that always stays up with a link to the snapshot dates etc. solve the same issue. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks for the input!

            • 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.

                • Link to school we need to contact in WISEdata

                  When searching details in Enrollment History area it would be nice to have a link direct to the school we need to contact on that page. Click on the school name and receive primary contact information. Time saver for searching and correcting information. (Code 6375)

                    • 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.

                      • 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…

                        • WISEdata Portal - Security by School

                          Create security for WISEdata similar to all other DPI applications, where rights can be assigned to a user for a specific school, not only district wide.

                              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.

                              • Open Enrollment

                                Shorten the time period for open enrollment applicants to report to the nonresident school district prior to the Third Friday Count. Nonresident school districts, especially the virtual schools, need to get students in school at least one week prior to the September count and claim them, so they're getting an education and they aren't truant. If they can't get the students "in," this would give resident school districts an opportunity and time to get the student in school.

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