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:

Printing Lists of Student Records in Web App

The earliest feature of the MIS2000 web app was printing student records. Recently we've introduced a couple different ways to make it easaier to print lists of Student Records in the web app. If you used the custom lists feature (described in blogs Student Lists in the MIS2000 Web App and Managing Student Lists), you can now use those lists to print a Student Record for every student in the list. Just click the "..." menu and select "View student records" like this:

Improvements to Web Resources

We've blogged here about the Resources page in the MIS2000 web before but we've made some tweaks to it recently to make it a bit easy to use. The main use of the page is to serve as a secure area to exchange files with the schools and LEAs. It's particularly useful for files that aren't related to a specific Student or COE so you wouldn't want to attach them directly. Each folder can be restricted to individual users or groups of users and they can also be given upload capabilities or restricted to just download.
