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.
This page closely mimics the PARCC Pre-ID page on IWAS/SIS. 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 is receiving ANY accommodation.
This page uses the IL state fields, so no trouble running the "IL PARCC Report". However, their are 3 custom fields you will have to create (see installation).
"IWAS/SIS" being the Illinois state student information system, I don't know if this page would be useful to anyone outside of Illinois.
Version 1.x of this page came out before there where any official IL PARCC fields. Therefore all the fields in version 1.x where custom in a database extensions table called "U_PARCC". This new version has been converted to use the IL state fields. If you want the current values in your U_PARCC table to carry forward with this new version, you must export out all those U_PARCC fields, map them to the state fields, and import back in. Drop me a line
if you need help with this.
Unfortunately there is currently no way to delete that DB extension table (vote up this enhancement request
- Copy the pages to the custom web_root on your server, or upload via CPM, to the same folders like in the zip file.
- Navigate to a student and you will now see a "PARCC" link at the end of the Information student pages.
- On the PARCC page is a link at the bottom "Show Fields" which pops up a windows displaying all field names on the page.
- You will have to create 3 custom fields: ela_accommodations, math_accommodations, and alternative. I have these as data base extensions in a table called U_PARCC. But feel free to change those three to be whatever you like. Just leave all the state fields as is.
2.1 - Changed the name to PARCCtastic. Added a handful of validations PAN imposes. Like if Large Print is checked, test format must be paper, etc, etc.
2.0 - Converted all fields to the Illinois state PARCC fields. Added additional fields needed to run the PARCC IL state report.
1.0 - Initial release.
