ISBE is currently creating a point-in- time , 2006 Assessment Correction file . . This file will contain information from the Assessment Pre-ID label file as well as information from the enrollment/demographic file. Districts will use this file to make final corrections. . ISBE will also use it to calculate AYP participation rates. An IWAS email will be sent when this file is available.
IN THE MEANTIME, NORMAL UPDATING TO SIS FILES (DEMOGRAPHIC/ ENROLLMENT/EXIT) SHOULD BE ONGOING.
