UPDATE: This documentation was for the process of migrating from older Test Setting codes to use the updated set for 2018-2019 and beyond. It is saved here for historical purposes.
Several codes have been inactivated from the prior school years. The update process in AdminCS will update the codes for the 2018-2019 test administration and add an exit date of 6/30 of the prior school year to any open Test Settings (STS) records with expired or invalid codes.
The Active Test Settings screen in Aeries Web Version will also add an exit date of 6/30 of the prior school year to any open Test Setting (STS) records with expired or invalid codes. Any High School Science test settings or Condition Code test settings that carry over from a prior school year will also be automatically closed with an exit date of 6/30 of the prior school year for all students the first time a user enters the Test Settings page in the new school year.
In the below example the NEA.MTS record became an expired code in the 2017-18 school year. The 6/30/2017 end date was automatically added to the record when the user first entered the Active Test Settings screen in the 2017-18 school year.
NOTE: Beginning with the 2015-16 Test Administration the Print on Demand (TDS_PoD_Stim) code cannot be imported into TOMS through the Test Settings upload, the testing vendor must be contacted to provide this accommodation. In Aeries this Test Settings record is informational only.
