13 Development Decisions Program the business rules + No new work – Requirements gathering – Extensive testing – Rules about releasing data – Rules about aggregation – Annual ongoing maintenance – SLOW processing time Create tables of final data + Maximum control + Programmable update/refresh schedule + Improved system response time – Program Automation – Creating a new view of existing data

14 Table Structure De-normalized (“somewhat”)De-normalized (“somewhat”) –Subgroup indicator (race, special education, LEP, etc.) –Additional fields for Gender and Race –Records for State-level, District-level and Sch-level data Possible: white males in Special EducationPossible: white males in Special Education Not Possible: white males in both Special Education & LEP programsNot Possible: white males in both Special Education & LEP programs
