State-wide results for Grade 3-8 ELA and Math
SED has posted the aggregate results of the Grades 3-8 ELA and Math assessments that were publicly released on Thursday. This data is available on the new School Report Card site.
To access the information go to: http://data.nysed.gov
In the center of the screen select 2013-14 and Public School 3-8 Assessment Data.
On the next screen choose the ELA or Math data.
The next screen displays the percent of students scoring on each level and the percent proficient for 2013 and 2014 for all grades state-wide. (Note: The screen displays 2013 in the left hand panel and 2014 on the right.)
This data may be filtered by Gender, Ethnicity, Grade, District Needs Category, subgroups, and Proficiency levels. To filter the data click on “Filter this data” in the blue bar above the graph. (Be sure to click on the little blue “Filter” button to apply the filter.)
This same information can also be displayed for each school district by clicking on the “Districts” button in the black bar at the top of the screen or by searching by district name on the home screen of this site.
August UIAS False Transfer reports
As you review the August UIAS False Transfer Report, the reports are flagging all student that had a 153 transfer (any kids going from Elem to Mid, Mid to HS, etc.)
If districts have already reviewed the July False Transfer report to ensure the 153s from those reports are resolved, then they may selectively ignore 153s in the August FT reports if it seems too laborious to differentiate between the rollovers and potentially legitimate cases.
Personnel Master File (PMF) 2014-15 Timeline and Changes
This memo highlights the timeline for the 2014-15 data collection of the Basic Education Data System (BEDS) Personnel Master File (PMF) and updates to the collection process for teacher data. Please share this communication with your district data coordinators and individuals responsible for the BEDS collection and reporting.
End of year reporting deadline has been extended to September 12, 2014
The end-of-year reporting deadline for 2013-14 data has been extended to September 12, 2014. In accordance, certification of the end-of-year data is due on September 19, 2014. This extension is based on a number of variables that have impacted a district's ability to accurately review and verify prior to certifying their data.
A parallel change has been made to certification deadlines for special education data submitted through the PD system. The certification due date for the VRs 13, 15, and 16 has been extended to September 15, 2014.
There are no changes to any other data deadlines, but please note that the data collection for 2014-15 will be slightly delayed as to allow for the final collection of 2013-14 data.

Efficiently Running Cognos Reports
Did you know that you can set-up Cognos to run reports in the background? As many reports are time intensive to run, especially those by student, you may want to elect to run or create reports while you continue with other work, eliminating the need to wait for each report to finish before moving on. Detailed instructions can be found here.
