Release Note

PSSR-297912New Iowa Stored Class Rank and GPA Data Verification Report

Update Stored Class Rank and GPA Data Verification Report: Version 22.9.1
As a follow-on to the Iowa eTranscript Data Collection and the new Iowa Class Rank tab added in the prior release, a new process and report are now available to assist districts in managing cumulative GPA’s and Class Rank data.

  • Summary
    • This report copies and stores calculated Class Rank and GPA data for selected students from the PowerSchool core Class Rank table to the Iowa State extended fields in order to preserve official rank information for use with the Iowa eTranscript.
    • The current values for the Weighted and Non-weighted GPA Methods specified in District > Schools/School Info for the student’s current or most recent reportable school are used to identify the Rank and GPA data to store.
    • The report also supports the ability to delete the stored Class Rank and GPA data and/or to delete any overrides to these calculated fields previously entered or imported by the district.
    • The values copied from the Class Rank table and any district overrides are available for review on the State/Province - IA > Class Rank/GPA tab.
    • A verification report with options for CSV or PDF output is also provided to allow the district to validate these data and to identify records with non-matching data that may be out-of-date.
    • When eTranscript records are transmitted to the state via SIF, the following hierarchy of data sources is used. The first non-NULL values in the order listed will be extracted.
      • Rank and GPA Overrides on the IA Class Rank/GPA tab
