Student Assessment


The Student Assessment Pre-Code Data Collection has been completely revised to simplify the setup, data entry, and database table structure for the Texas state assessment registrations. Districts can begin student data collection now for student testing exceptions and attributes (accommodations) for STAAR 3-8, STAAR EOC, STAAR/EOC Alternate 2, and TELPAS/TELPAS Alternate. The new student table structure is designed to support ease of entry or import of student-level exceptions. Codes can also be mass-assigned using the Student Field Value function.

  • Important: The current 22.8.1 versions of the Student Assessment Registration File and Student Test Attributes Upload File on the State Reports page are obsolete and cannot be used to load records to Cambium. New versions of the Student Assessment Pre-Code extracts, along with a new Additional Student Fields extract, are planned for the next state reporting release.

  • Obsolete Setup and Student Assessment Pre-Code Pages Removed

    • All prior data collection pages for Assessment Pre-Code are removed from District Setup, Courses, Sections and State/Province – TX > Student Assessment Pre-Code. New student-level tabs are now available as described below.

    • The assignment of assessments to courses or sections and other pre-code setup that was previously required is eliminated.

      • Assessment pre-code registration records for STAAR 3-8 will now be generated automatically for all students in grades 3-8.

      • STAAR EOC records will now be generated automatically based on EOC course enrollments. Exceptions can be entered on the student assessment pre-code tabs, including flags for students taking the STAAR Alternate 2 or STAAR EOC Alternate 2 assessments.

    • TELPAS records continue to be generated automatically for students with an EB/EL Indicator of 1 in the special program record. Students requiring the TELPAS Alternate version can be flagged in the special program record as before, or in the new TELPAS Alternate field provided on the Student Assessment Pre-Code tab for TELPAS/TELPAS Alternate.

  • New S_TX_STU_ASSMT_X Table

    • All of the new student assessment pre-code fields are housed this single, new table, which is a simple extension of the Students table. All other tables previously used for precoding are obsolete.

    • Refer to the Texas Data Dictionary in the online state reporting documentation for a complete list of the new fields, which include elements reported to Cambium in the Registration File, the Attributes File, and in the new Additional Student Fields File.

      • To import student records, begin by exporting basic student identifiers including the Student DCID, then use the Data Import Manager function to import or update records in the database.

      • Boolean fields: In the UI, select the checkbox, and a value of 1 (Yes) is saved in the database. If importing, populate these fields with a value of 1 (Yes) or 0 (No); if using Student Field Value, populate with values of True or False.

      • VarChar2 fields: In the UI, select the desired code in the dropdown list. If importing or using Student Field Value, populate the desired two or three character short code as shown in the dropdown list.
