WISEdata Release Notes

New Validation Rules for 22-23 SY:

Courses previously and commonly referred to as "Foreign Language" will now be named "World Languages" to reflect the reality that these languages are spoken by resident communities within the United States as well as others in other nations. New errors will display for the 2022-23 SY when schools that offer grade level 6th-8th do not have World Language course data submitted.

Wisconsin State Statutes require access to world language education beginning in grade 7. Enrollment and Roster data is used for year-to-year comparisons to capture changes in world language participation over time. Because world languages are elective subjects, this information is valuable both for districts and the state. This data is also used for comparisons at the national level, and it may be important for grant applications.

NEW Validation Rules 7187 and 7439: These validation warnings, using the new code EXWL, indicate an error specific to student grade (grade 7-12) and with the course code, as new World Language Program codes are being used. ‘Foreign Language Exploratory Program’ (FLEX) is being replaced with ‘Exploratory World Language Program’ (EXWL).

NEW Validation Rule 7438: Invalid Ancestry Data warning indicates that some aspect of the required Race and Ethnicity data is not being properly reported. Remember that this demographic information should be the same in your SIS as well as in WISEdata and WISEid.

Removed validation 5810 as not needed and modified validation 4610 to “53-0808 can be only used for grade levels K3, PK, K4 so the assignment is not allowed for this school. Please either change the assignment or change school to one that has K3, PK, or K4.”

[WISEstaff] Data Quality Dashboard performance

Greatly improved the Data Quality Dashboard so it works quickly for all districts including large districts. We still have performance delays for the Expiring Background Checks and the Expiring Staff License widgets we will fix in the future.
