SEA and LEA EDFacts Edit Check and Data Display Tools
These Edit Check and Data Display Tools help states as they prepare their IDEA Section 618 data submissions. The tools identify potential business rule errors or errors in subtotals or totals prior to submitting the data to OSEP.
SEA EDFacts Edit Check and Data Display Tools
These tools allow states to copy and paste their EDFacts data files directly into the tools, as opposed to manually entering their data. The tools also provide states with user-friendly data summaries. Enhanced versions are available for the Child Count and Educational Environments, Discipline, Exiting, and Personnel data collections; enhanced tools are not available for the Assessment or Dispute Resolution data collections. Freshly updated SEA EDFacts Edit Check and Data Display Tools for School Age Child Count and Early Childhood Child Count now include a year-to-year comparison functionality that allows users to compare two years of their state-level FS002 or FS089 data to see whether there are significant differences they should review before submitting their data.
The IDEA 618 Metadata Edit Check Tool
States can use this Excel tool as they prepare their Section 618 data for submission. States enter responses to the metadata questions in the tool for the current reporting period. Based on these responses and the related business rules identified in the EDFacts Business Rules Single Inventory (BRSI), the tool identifies relevant data quality considerations for the state’s Section 618 data submissions. The tool presents the relevant data quality considerations in plain English and states can use them to discuss Section 618 data quality and zero count reporting with stakeholders.
