  1. 2010 STARExtended Data Corrections and Returning MaterialsWebcast April 21, 2010 START TIME 9:00 a.m. Presenters: Michael McDaniel and Mark Hansen Extended Data Corrections and Returning Materials

  2. Objectives District STAR coordinators will understand the following about STAR 2010 activities: • The benefits of using the Extended Data Corrections module to correct demographic data • How to use the Extended Data Corrections module • Which multiple-choice administration demographic data can be changed or added • How and when to submit Extended Data Corrections • How to properly package operational test materials for return • How to properly return operational test materials Extended Data Corrections and Returning Materials

  3. Agenda • Extended Data Corrections • Overview • Preparation • Data review and data rules • Timeline • Options for modifying demographic data • Offline—File submission • Online—Screen data entry • Returning 2010 STAR test materials • Overview • Preparation • Collection • Return Extended Data Corrections and Returning Materials

  4. Extended Data Corrections: Overview Extended Data Corrections and Returning Materials

  5. Overview • This module allows districts to: • Correct student demographic information for multiple-choice administrations • Add missing student demographic information for multiple-choice administrations • Amend student’s parent/guardian address printed on individual student report(s) • There is no charge for Extended Demographic Data Corrections. • All data changes will be reflected at the time of reporting. Extended Data Corrections and Returning Materials

  6. Benefits • Reduce hand-marking of answer documents • Provide more current and accurate demographic data used to create STAR reports • Reduce the number of STAR Student Reports returned to the district as undeliverable • Provide potential time and cost savings: • Reports will not be delayed because of missing data • Eliminate the need to provide data at the time of scoring (cost is $1.32 per student) • Eliminate the need for Demographic Data Corrections in October (cost is $630 plus 16 cents per student) Extended Data Corrections and Returning Materials

  7. Preparation Determine whether any data need to be updated or added. • Did the district submit the “Demographic Fields to Be Hand-Marked on 2010 STAR Answer Documents or Entered During Extended Data Corrections” form? • Have any demographic data for the student changed since Pre-ID was used to print documents/labels? For example: • Statewide Student ID • English proficiency • Student’s address Extended Data Corrections and Returning Materials

  8. Preparation (continued) • Develop a plan and a timeline. • Gather the data required to be updated for each student. • Which data require updating? • Where can you find the updated data? • When will you have the data available? • Update the STAR demographic data. • Decide on the method to use: • On-screen—one student at a time • File—download data, correct, and reload corrected data • Combination • Updates can be performed over many days. • Demographic Data Corrections must be completed by the district’s selected last day of testing for the administration being corrected.

  13. Correctable Data • All other student demographic data • Parent/guardian address Extended Data Corrections and Returning Materials

  14. Example Use: Student Transfers • Move Pre-ID document or label to the student’s new school. • Return student’s materials with scorable materials at the student’s new school. • Update “CBEDS School” using Extended Data Corrections. • Update any other school-related data. Note: Student records cannot be added or deleted using this module; use Pre-ID to add and delete student records. Extended Data Corrections and Returning Materials

  23. Step 3:Upload Amended File Select the Upload File link in the “Extended Corrections” area in the left navigation bar. Select Browse to locate your file Select Load File to start your upload Extended Data Corrections and Returning Materials

  24. File Upload Messages • Successful upload • “An e-mail will be sent to provide results.” • “An e-mail address is not defined. Please return later to view results.” • Unsuccessful upload messages • “File extension incorrect - File must be of type .txt.” • “File with same name exists - File must have a unique name.” • “File will not be accepted after the [Last Day of Testing].” Extended Data Corrections and Returning Materials

  25. Step 4:Review Uploaded Data File Status Select the Upload File Status link in the “Extended Corrections” area in the left navigation bar to view information about data errors in the upload file. Extended Data Corrections and Returning Materials

  26. Step 4:Review Uploaded Data File Status (cont.) File Status: Submitted – File has been uploaded but not processed. In Process – Data records are currently being validated. Error – File contains some data records that are in error. – Select Error to obtain list of errors (similar in structure to Pre-ID). Complete – All data loaded and processed without errors. Failed Processing – File loaded with errors and failed to process. Extended Data Corrections and Returning Materials

  27. Step 5:Correct Errors Select the word “Error” under “Status” to display a list of errors. Note: Errors should be corrected. Some errors, when left uncorrected, may incur additional charges to the school district. Extended Data Corrections and Returning Materials
