1 PARCC Student Registration Import File spring 2015
With MSDE State Optional Data

2 Purpose of meeting: Review PARCC Data Import Process and Layout for the Spring administration Review website procedures for uploading Student Registration Import (SRI) File Review MSDE layout built from PARCC SRI File Briefly discuss Personal Needs Profile (PNP). The November 10th meeting will review the PNP in detail.

5 MSDE has uploaded the organization and the participation files for the Spring PARCC administration.
Local school systems will upload the Student Registration Import (SRI) file and the Personal Needs Profile (PNP) for their students. Deadlines: PBA – November 21, 2014 EOY – January 23, 2015 Note: The PNP may be upload up until the day before testing.

6 A November 10th training is planned on PARCC Accessibility Features and Accommodations Manual and the PNP. A specific list of accessibility features and accommodations will be shared at the training. This training will include the Directors of Special Education and Local Accountability Coordinators and other team members. Today, this presentation will highlight the student demographic information on the PNP.

17 The rest of this document is the PARCC layout.
The local school systems may refer to this layout for CED and PARCC definitions. The local school systems will use MSDE PARCC MSDE Spring Pretest File Layout for LEA. The MSDE Layout will eliminate “critical warnings” that will require future action or updates.

43 ERRORS THAT OCCURRED DURING FALL BLOCK SRI UPLOAD
1 Incorrect format was used - must be CSV. 2 Header row was missing. 3 Incorrect number of columns (PARCC said "tokens"). Spring CSV must have 51 columns. 4 Name elements; some LEA used punctuation; did not use standard apostrophe 5 Last Name included generational suffix and had a comma between name and suffix. 6 Do not use a comma in any column in the CSV format; will cause another column. 7 State Optional Data areas were not a string; but separate columns. PARCC does not accept separate columns within that area.

44 ERRORS THAT OCCURRED DURING FALL BLOCK SRI UPLOAD
(continued) 8 Critical warnings occurred if PARCC has not required but under PARCC Definitions and Notes, it states: This field is not required during import of student data, but if left blank, this field will create a Critical Warning in PearsonAccessNext. These Critical Warnings must be corrected prior to reporting and shortly after testing. No posttest process has been announced or determined by Pearson as of this date. Once the Fall Block upload was completed, no critical warnings were indicated for Maryland local school systems. Students entered via data entry will have critical warnings due to the fact that the sensitive data fields are not required to test a student. 9 Title III Limited English Proficient Participation Status left blank - default to N.

45 ERRORS THAT OCCURRED DURING FALL BLOCK SRI UPLOAD
(continued) 10 Gifted and Talented left blank - default to N. 11 Students with Disabilities left blank - tied to MSDE data element and only use Y or N. 12 Primary Disability Type blank when Students with Disabilities left blank. Must be completed with Pearson Codes; use only initials not complete name; i.e., AUT for Autism. 13 Need to use accommodations on this SRI to order appropriate paper test documents.

46 NOTES 1 URL for File Upload: https://.pearsonaccessnext.com; on drop-down menu select "Maryland" URL for Training Center: pearsonaccessnext.com; on drop-down menu select "Training“ 2 Naming convention: Begin with LEA number; administration indication (Spring2015/PBA/EOY; then any other identifying information you wish) For example: LEA01_SpringPBA_File1_ csv 3 Need to import a file for PBA and also for EOY (update any data elements that might have changed between the imports).

47 NOTES (continued) 4 If more than one content, need 2 rows per student with different test codes. 5 The format is CSV. If you use Microsoft Excel, it is recommended that you save a source file as an Excel spreadsheet to keep formatting (including any leading zeros). Prior to each import attempt, save the file as an Excel spreadsheet (this will be your original source file). Then save it again as a .csv file. If you receive an error message, make the updates in the source Excel spreadsheet and save the file, then save it again as a .csv file. 6 Pearson has used current CEDS definitions. 7 MSDE has tried to help with making the import file as complete as possible for PARCC needs and MDSE reporting needs.

48 NOTES (continued) 8 MSDE required elements are for our reporting purposes or for documentation purposes. If this data element is not supplied, the file will not be rejected. 9 Any fields populated in both the required and state optional fields will be populate (“pass-through”) in any data file produced by vendors and/or within their applications or products. 10 PARCC is not requiring certain student identifying information for testing purposes to enable same day registering at the school-level. However, in the future these data elements will be required for reporting purposes and have “critical warnings” indicated.

49 NOTES (continued) 11 Critical warnings must be updated within PearsonAccessNext. PearsonAccessNext has not yet identified an updating system. However, Maryland local school systems populating these data elements in the file import will assure accuracy for both PARCC and MSDE reporting. See asterisked in PARCC required column. 12 MSDE will convert indicated data elements received from PARCC to the data standards presently in place for any and all data files received from PARCC, used for State reporting purposes and forwarded to local school systems.
