Districts testing March 6-17 and Data Corrections
Please be notified that those districts testing ISAT and IMAGE March 6 -17, 2006, will have an extension for their data corrections – moving the deadline from March 17th to Tuesday, March 21st. No extension is expected for the other testing windows.
Go to www.isbe.net/assessment for information about state wide conference calls Wednesday and Thursday for these early testing districts.
Please continue to keep your SIS data – both the State ID file and the pre-ID assessment file -- accurate and up to date.
Please note the pre-ID assessment file does not read the State ID file. Therefore, if you have errors on RCDTS codes for home school, serving school or testing school – you must make those changes on both the State ID and pre-assessment file.
You may check your data on Spectrum (for ISAT and PSAE) and Questar (for IAA) – view only to see what Harcourt has downloaded from the SIS file. This is being uploaded every night. For more information, please look at our website for data corrections materials and information – www.isbe.net/assessment
