Ed-Fi Codeset Mapping

When data is published to the destination server, the local mapping is used when necessary to determine the correct value to transmit with the data. Any local values that are not properly mapped will be excluded from the data exchange.

After downloading data from the destination server, you will be ready to enter information on the Code Set Mappings page. Schools do not have the ability to modify codes separately from other schools. This mapping must be completed by the LEA.

Some states will not have this option. Instead, the system will display the values already provided by the education agency. If your state is using this option, it is important to remember that in order to have data to map on the Code Set Mappings page, you must first download the data provided.

To access the Code Set Mappings page, sign in to PowerSchool at the district level.

  1. On the start page, choose System under Setup in the main menu. 
  2. Click the Code Set Mappings or Code Set Mappings (Other) link located under Data Exchange.
  3. Select a Profile.
  4. Select a Code Set category to modify. The code set list can be different for each implementation.
  5. Once selected, use the table on the page to associate the PowerSchool codes on the left with the downloaded values from the state on the right.
  6. Match up the locally configured PowerSchool codes with the supplied downloaded codes using the Selected Downloaded State Code pop-up menu.
    Note: Data using values that are not mapped cannot be published to the destination server.
  7. Click Save after each Code Set category is mapped.

Code Set Mappings (Other)

The Code Set Mapping (Other) is used for various additional local mappings. 

Next Step

Once the downloaded codes are mapped, you are ready to Publish Data.
