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). Otherwise, they just want to collect a comment. So the comment section would look like this:

Integrating MIS2000 with Single-Sign-On

Enrollment Imports

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 ...

Ad Hoc Student Lists

We introduced lists of Students into the MIS2000 web app a couple years ago. You can read about them in the blog posts Student Lists in the MIS2000 Web App and Managing Student Lists. But these are named lists, designed for groups of students that you'll want to keep around a while and use many times. Sometimes, though, you may want to work with a group of students just once. And you won't want to name the list, add the students, work with it, and then clean it up afterwards. So we've introduced "ad hoc" lists, lists on the fly, that are created a simply as checking a box beside each student you want. Just do a search that gets all the students you're interested in, check the box beside each, and then click the "..." button above the checkbox column. That button has the same options as the corresponding button beside each named list in the "lists" tab. Here's what it looks like:
