Illinois state reporting team added a PARCC tab to the state screen...
Which is nice. But I like my version better. Perhaps you will to.
The accommodations for ELA and Math are hidden until the ela_accommodations
checkboxes are checked. This way it is super-easy to search for a student who has any accommodations marked.
Data validation scripts check a handful of common accommodation errors. Such as, if Large Print is checked Test Format must be paper, etc.
This latest version will also check if you have accommodations already entered in the built in state page and blink a warning next to the "parent" ela_accommodations
checkboxes that they have automatically been checked and the page needs to be submitted. Best solution I could come up with. If you already have a lot filled in under the built in screen, you may want to just use the "show fields" link at the bottom of the page and copy/paste the fields into a quick export to mass update the "parent" ela_accommodations
This page uses the IL state fields, so no trouble running the "IL PARCC Report". However, their are 3 new custom fields that are created when the plugin is installed (using the database extension group U_PARCC).
This page was created around Illinois state reporting. Not sure if it would be of use outside Illinois.
Updated accommodations to match the changes in the PARCC data elements ISBE talked about in it's 11/3/15 webinar. HOWEVER, I did not add the fields: Administration, Enrolled in home school on or before May 1st, Enrolled in home district on or before May 1st, New arrival/first year in US.
Since this page follows the IL state fields to be compatible with state reports, I need to wait until the PowerSchool state reporting team creates these fields. Or they may decide to determine the May 1st thing based on entry date. We will have to wait and see.
