CRDC: How to Determine Middle School Course Codes

The Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) asks for counts of courses, students in and passing Algebra I in Grades 7 and 8. Schools should code their middle school Algebra I courses as follows so that DPI can capture and output the correct data from your Roster (formerly CWCS) data to create the CRDC pre-fill data file. This guidance also ensures forward compatibility for any future WISEdata system programming.

CRDC QUESTIONS: This guidance applies to the following CRDC module question numbers:

  • COUR-1: Count of Classes in Algebra I (Grades 7-12) in P1Q13
  • COUR-2: Student Enrollment in Algebra I (Grades 7-8) in P1Q14
  • COUR-3: Middle School Students Who Passed Algebra I in P2Q1

GUIDANCE: The DPI Teacher Licensing team (TEPDL) recommends that the following rules be applied when coding your middle school Algebra I courses for Roster. This guidance applies whether a teacher holds an Elementary Education 1777 license or a Mathematics 1400 secondary license. The important factor is CREDIT received by the student for the course.
