Known Issue - FIXED 3/30/20 - CAASPP Interim Assessment Data Files Include Other Test Results

Update:  This fix is included in the update dated 3/30/2020:   

Import Test Results - The CAASPP Interim Assessment import will now skip summative assessment records when importing.

1. It has come to our attention that CAASPP/TOMS has updated their procedures to download CAASPP Interim Assessment Student Results. The Test Specific Information - CAASPP Interim Assessments article has been updated with new screenshots.

2.  According to the California Educator Reporting System User Guide for 2019-20 the California Educator Reporting System (CERS) will phase in all student results from all CAASPP and ELPAC assessments over the next couple of years. The District/School Exports has no filtering or customization capability at this time, so annual CAASPP and ELPAC summative results will be included with the Interim Assessment results. Below is a chart from the CERS User Guide outlining when to expect the various assessments to be added to the extract:

3. Some of our customers have downloaded student result files that include CAASPP Interim Assessment (ICA and IAB results), ELPAC results and SBAC ELA and Math results. Upon importing this file it caused duplicate ELPAC and SBAC records with a TST.ID = 'SBSUM'  and CST.ID = 'SUMMATH' or 'SUMELA' .  The quick fix for now is to open the data file in a text editor such as NOTEPAD or NOTEPAD ++ and delete the test result records for the summative assessments, leaving only the ICA or IAB test results. After the summative results have been deleted the data file can be imported into Aeries.

4. We are looking into the best solution to provide for this issue.
