DATA CORRECTIONS DEADLINE INFORMATION
At Midnight, Friday, September 8, the correction period for Grades 3 through Grades 8 will close. Districts are expected to have all data accurate on the Assessment Correction files for students that were tested in Grades 3 through Grades 8. All missing scores must have been reported to ISBE staff before this time.
Next week, ISBE staff will finish the data processing internally, uploading data and working with districts and schools that have been waiting for correction information from our vendors.
Although we will continue to calculate AYP for Grades 3 through Grades 8 and post Status Reports on IWAS on a daily basis, final AYP Status Reports will not be posted until all internal processing has been completed. At that time, we will notify district superintendents via IWAS that their final Status Reports are available. Any questions regarding AYP should be directed to 217/782-3950.
Our staff will be available until 8:00 p.m. on Friday, September 8, to assist any districts that are still uploading or correcting data. You can reach us at 217/782-4823 after 5:00 p.m.
