Evaluation Complete Indicator

Evaluation Complete Indicator: Special Education


Evaluation Complete Indicator: This is a ‘True’ or ‘False’ value entered into your SIS or Special Ed Web Portal. ‘True’ indicates that the evaluation has been completed and should be accompanied by the date on which the evaluation was completed. ‘False’ indicates that the evaluation has not been completed. The LEA will need to provide either an Evaluation Delay Reason OR an Evaluation Late Reason. Do not enter both.

If both an Evaluation Delay Reason and an Evaluation Late reason are provided, LEAs will receive an L2 notification 7180.

Data Submission Details

DPI is requiring Timely Initial Evaluations (Indicator 11) data to be reported through WISE to better support our local educational agency (LEA) staff time and efforts by reducing the number of applications they need to access to report required data.

Beginning immediately, all data element fields must contain valid data or will be found to be in error (not warning) status.

Starting with the 2023-24 school year and onwards:

  • DPI will get Indicator 11 from data submitted by LEAs into WISEdata.
  • All Indicator 11 data elements must be submitted by all LEAs each school year through WISEdata.
  • Starting with the 2023-24 school year, all LEAs will report Indicator 11 data annually through WISE. In the past, only LEAs “in cycle” were required to submit data in any given year.
  • The first instance of Indicator 11 data being collected as part of the 23-24 Year-End collection in a snapshot will be December 10, 2024, during the 2024-25 school year.

In order to ensure that the data is valid and reliable, please note the following:

  • All students who are evaluated for special education must have a WISEid (for children below compulsory school age or parentally placed in private or home-based schooling, please visit the Student Education Organization Responsibility Association (SEORA) data element page.
  • NOTE: Data cannot flow to DPI unless it is entered in your SIS. To resolve issues around data that is entered into the SIS that isn’t flowing to DPI, LEAs need to work with their vendor support staff to resolve data flow issues.

For more information refer to the Timely Special Ed Evaluation, the Evaluation Delay Reason, and the Evaluation Late Reason data element pages.
