Controlling Error visibility in Student Record application

One of our users had an interesting request:

She wants to be able to control what her school users see in terms of Errors and Warnings. SR application already allows admin users to turn an Error/Warning code on or off at System level. But, she wanted a more granular control, i.e., to be able to turn specific errors off for individual schools.

With the latest SR application update, you should be able to do this.

Turning off Errors at System level:

New Content Completer validation report

Content Completer data element is mandatory for each Course level record. This element, though new, is a critical data element and will potentially be used for a large number of CCRPI indicators.

There is a lot of confusion out there about how this element is going to be reported and how it's going to be used for CCRPI. Information available through the DOE is complex and confusing at this point. Furthermore, 2 weeks from the end of current school year and the DOE is still trying to finalize the requirements..

Having said all that, we have added a new Course level report that validates Content Completer flag. This exception report looks for the following:

  • Content Completer = P and Numeric grade < 70 or Alpha Grade = F or N for any part of the course
  • Content Completer = F and no part of the course has Numeric grade < 70 or Alpha Grade = F or N
  • More than 1 part of the course being reported with Content Completer = P or F
