Editing Code Tables in the Web App

I'm pretty excited about this new piece of functionality. I haven't been a big fan of our code table editor in MIS2000 for a long time, and I wrote it! I decided all of our code table editing really needs to be done through the web app, so that's what I've done. Now any MIS2000 administrator can visit the new Codes menu item and edit pretty much any code table. It looks like this:

Hideable sections on the web COE

There are just a few states using the web COE at this point, but I wanted to show one of the nifty new things we've done with it. In Arizona, they wanted a to have a pretty big chunk of form in their COE that isn't anything like what's on the national COE, and it would only need to be filled out if the worker sought work and had a history of moves (generally question 4b on a COE).

Many, if not most, MIS2000 states now have some kind of import functionality where data is brought into MIS2000 from some other system in the state. We started doing this many years ago for assessment data and quite a few states now have an import for course history data as well. There are serious timeliness issues to be considered, but imports can make MSIX data much less of a data entry burden. But we only have a handful of states who import enrollment data. Both Maine and Alaska have been doing enrollment imports for years, and we've just recently put a system for importing enrollments into production in Kansas. There may be others that I've forgotten, but all three of these states have taken considerably different approaches to the basic problem. I think Alaska collects information from their districts and builds the import file more or less by hand using Excel before handing it to MIS2000. Maine produces their file from state-level enrollment data and runs the import into ...
