  4. What’s New? (cont.) • New fields • CMA-writing specific • Updated fields and sections • Revised update rules and acceptable values Demographic Data Corrections

  5. Why Correct Data? • Correct API and AYP calculations • Corrected data is sent to the CDE’s Academic Accountability Unit for recalculation • Score uncoded and rescore miscoded end-of-course mathematics or science tests • Other option is to hand score • Obtain corrected data CD Demographic Data Corrections

  6. Fields used for API and/or AYP calculations that may be corrected • SSID • CAPA Level • County/District code for student’s residence if residence is other than where student attends school/receives services • Special Testing Conditions (except for certain fields) • Modifications Used • Adult Testing Irregularities • Inappropriate Test Preparation Demographic Data Corrections
