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