Code Set Mapping

This view provides a summary of the Descriptors as defined by the Kansas Department of Education, and downloaded into PowerSchool. The view includes the Code Set Name and Description, along with a count of the corresponding Code Values Defined for each descriptor, and the date of the Last Update. The download includes the Descriptors used in the current Kansas Ed-Fi implementation, as well as the broader list of items defined within the Ed-Fi specification that may be used in future phases.

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.

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. Go to Start Page > System Administrator > Data Exchange > Code Set Mappings.

  2. Select a Profile.

  3. Select a Code Set category to modify. The code set list can be different for each implementation.

  4. 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.

  5. Match 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.

  6. Click Save after each Code Set category is mapped.
