Data entry Once you have reviewed both files (excel data entry sheet & word document directions sheet), you’re ready to begin data entry! Tip: You can begin data entry as soon as possible and enter in as much student data that you have This way, at the end of the school year you only need to enter the total number of sessions, exiting information, and new intervention information (if applicable)
Potential problems/concerns Make sure you’re using the excel file sent as an attachment in your Do NOT include any non-numerical characters in the student information columns (e.g., State ID number: # – the # should not be included) Note: Excel will automatically remove an ‘0s’ at the beginning of a student or school code – this is okay! We can still determine the student/school ID number if it is less than 10 digits and will assume the first digits should be ‘0’ Please only include RTA students in the data file (i.e., not all students in your grade/school)
What if…? If the student receives multiple intervention programs (simultaneously) from the RTA intervention teacher? Please record the PRIMARY intervention provided by the RTA funded teacher If a student exited RTA intervention in the winter, but re-entered in the spring? Complete two separate entries (i.e., two rows for that student) containing their original entry date (e.g., 08/08/2013) and their “re- entry date (e.g., 03/17/14)
Questions What if I still have questions? Melissa Murphy – Judith Halasek -
