CALPADS Flash Update #168 - December 17, 2019

Important Reminder to update the Student English Language Acquisition Status in CALPADS Prior to Summative Testing for the English Language Proficiency Assessment for California All English learners must be assessed annually with the Summative English Language Proficiency Assessment for California (ELPAC). In order to be tested, students must have an English Language Acquisition Status (ELAS) of English Learner (EL) in CALPADS. Therefore, it is critical that students' ELAS are up-to-date in CALPADS before the Summative ELPAC testing opens on February 3, 2020, in order that students may be tested. In addition, any students' initial ELAS statuses that have been corrected through one of the all...

Cooking with CALPADS: Fun with Extracts

cooking_calpads_300.png

There are 9 types of CALPADS Extract files: 1.  ODS Extracts 2.  SSID Extract 3.  Candidate List Extract 4.  Replacement SSID Extract 5.   Rejected Records Extract 6.  Direct Certification Extract 7.  Assessment - Student Results Extract New! 8.  Assessment - Individual Student Results Extract New! 9.  Suspense Resolution Records     Type #1 - "Operational Data Store or 'O.D.S.' extract"  Generating an ODS extract is useful if you want to compare the data in CALPADS to what is in your own SIS system.  Since an ODS extract pulls out the "live" data, you can match what is in CALPADS to your own data to make sure you have enrolled or exited all of the students correctly, to identify students who might be participating in a program, determine the EL status, etc. There are 13 different types of ODS extract files.  They are virtually identical to the files used to upload data to the calpads system from your student information system, with three differences: the ODS Extract file is structured like the input file with the addition of two fields, (A) the upload date and (B) the last date updated, at the end of each record. Additionally, the (C) Record Type Code will have a ‘-R’ appended to the Input Record Type Code. ODS Extract Record Type Codes # Record Type Input Record Type Code ODS Extract Record Type Code 1 SSID Enrollment SENR SENR-R 2  Student Information SINF SINF-R 3 Student English Language Acquisition SELA SELA-R 4 Student Program SPRG SPRG-R 5 Student Discipline SDIS SDIS-R 6 Student Waivers SWAV SWAV-R 7 Staff Demographics SDEM SDEM-R 8 Staff Assignment SASS SASS-R 9 Course Section Enrollment CRSE CRSE-R 10 Course Section Completion CRSC CRSC-R 11 Student Course Section Enrollment SCSE SCSE-R 12 Student Course Section Completion SCSC SCSC-R 13 Student Career Technical Education SCTE SCTE-R   Type #2 - "SSID extract" An LEA may request an extract of their "State Student Identifier Number" or "SSID" information from the CALPADS portal. CALPADS will create the extract file according to the user’s specified selection criteria. The SSIDs in the file may be imported into a local student information system and/or used locally on the user’s personal computing system. The file will contain a list of SSIDs and limited demographics based on the selected filter criteria defined by the LEA. CALPADS will extract ONLY THE SSIDs associated with the students currently enrolled in the LEA. The content of the SSID Extract file is listed in the table below. SSID Extract Record Layout # CALPADS File Element Field Type Max Length Business Rule 1  Reporting LEA CS 7 This will default to the institution identifier of the User ID. May not be blank. 2  School of Attendance CS 7 The 7 digit code associated with the student’s school of attendance. May not be blank. 3  SSID CS 10 The SSID for the student. If the SSID associated with the enrollment is retired, the system will populate the SSID field with the active SSID associated with the retired...

End-of-Year 3 Updates and Reminders CERT125 Will Be Disabled and CERT127 Will Become Fatal In analyzing the 2017–18 End-of-Year (EOY) 3 certified data, the California Department of Education (CDE) found that a significant number of local educational agencies (LEAs) did not report suspension records in the Student Discipline (SDIS) file for students who were reported as attending in-house suspension or absent due to an out-of-school suspension in the Student Absence Summary (STAS) file. To further enforce the alignment of discipline incidents to absence summary data, the CDE will implement for the 2018–19 EOY 3 submission, the following changes to existing validations: Disable certification v...
