Student Demographic Data Collection & Reporting

Statewide Assessment Demographic Data Collection

The Department of Public Instruction will create student demographic pre-ID labels for statewide assessments for all Wisconsin Public School Districts. DPI will use the WSLS and ISES databases to create the labels. To ensure accuracy each district must update WSLS records and ISES "Grade Level Placement" field, update all WSLS records, and update/verify all assessment related ISES fields. Failure to do these three things may result in confusing and inaccurate pre-ID labels, erroneous Reports, and/or invalid accountability determinations. District Assessment Coordinators and District WSLS/ISES administrators should work together to accomplish this task.

Record Editing System (RES)

The WSAS RES provides districts with a final opportunity to correct student demographic data errors prior to the production of score reports and accountability determinations.

  • During the test administration, some students will be moving into the school districts in Wisconsin from different school districts in Wisconsin, out of state schools or from private schools. Some students will be moving from a Wisconsin school district to out of state school or to a private school in Wisconsin. The Office of Educational Accountability developed a descriptive table in an effort to answer the questions regarding the standard protocols that should be followed by both the districts from and to which the student moves during the testing window. This also provides the information on which district is accountable for the student during such situations.
