Which templates need to be uploaded for the PVAAS reporting?
Will the PIMS-PVAAS Timelines chart be available to us?
The PIMS-PVAAS dates for the remainder of the 16-17 SY are available on the Elementary-Secondary Data Collection Calendar 2016-2017 v4. They are also listed with RV dates in the "Are You Reeeeeady to Rosterrrrrr" power point presentation available on the DQN website under the Jan 18th meeting information. They are also posted on the PVAAS RV Google page along with all resources for RV: https://sites.google.com/a/iu13.org/pvaas-pl-resources/roster-verification-resources
How is the info on years of service that is collected on the staff template used (2 data fields)
Student, School enrollment, programs fact, staff and staff student subtest templates are utilized in PVAAS data submissions.
Would you consider requesting from SAS the capability to export what is in PVAAS RV during roster verification? We tell our staff to keep the SIS updated even after the data has been initially submitted to PIMS in March. Then, right before RV opens, I am able to compare what we submitted in March to what is in the PVAAS system and let both Admin and Teachers know what items changed and what is in the SIS currently to update RV.
We have added this to our "wish list" of feature enchancements. However, ginve the RV system is "LIVE" across all LEAs in PA, this may not be possible with the artitechture of the system. However, keep your ideas coming!!! We share them all with SAS EVAAS. New features have come from LEAs!
For the May 8 date, is the purpose to update new students that have enrolled from March 20 through May 8 or students that may have been missed so teachers can add them to their roster? Would a student need added to a roster if they came AFTER or even during PSSA testing?
Student, School enrollment, programs fact data should be uploaded to PIMS for these "gap enrollment" submissions. These submissions add the student to the back end of the PVAAS database so that that LEAs can add the students to their rosters.
A Penn Link was sent out about a webinar on 1/25 regarding Special Ed and PVAAS. What is this about?
Purpose of this webinar is to get a better understanding of how PVAAS can provide focus to your work in special education programs and services- USING the data for program and student level planning - for students with IEPs. This is not about any PIMS collections.
For the January 25th pull – are you doing All LEAS?
Yes data is pulled from all LEAs for the Jan 25th data pull from PIMS for PVAAS.
Long question for LEAs that have to report because they employ the instructor.
We would suggest finding other Ius that run similar programs as you. It is our understanding that for this program you are only required to submit student, student enrollment, programs fact and staff student subtest templates. You can then email the RA-DDQdatacollection@pa.gov account and we can set up a meeting to find out if there is any way to make this submission easier on your IU. However, for now, you must submit this data so that your teachers get allocated the instructional weight and instruction responsibility in the staff student subtest information provided to PVAAS. If your instructor is providing part of the instruction then your IU must submit. The location of the program is not relevant in this case.
