NSSRS validations question on procedures
I would like to have some procedures in place to help with the validation of data submitted in NSSRS so all of the responsibility does not fall on me.  I submit the reports to NDE pulled from PowerSchool but I would like to have admin review the data to have another set of eyes looking at it.  Perhaps sign off on it.  Just curious how other schools handle it.

Thanks for any input.

I am new to Hastings, but Kathy printed out all the NSSRS reports (after October & June uploads), put them in a 3 ring notebook, attached a routing slip and had it go around to all the administrative staff to sign off that they reviewed the data.  It was a CYA measure.  However, several administrative staff admitted that they may not even open the notebook... they just sign their name.

I have spoken to NDE staff on several occasions to ask that they train administrative staff on NSSRS - the where to look, what to look for, why should they look & when should the look.

I have also asked if they can produce something that shows what all the reports are (instead of going to Validation & having to click on each drop-down separately searching for the report we might need) as a guide for the Data Stewards and Administration to know where to look and what to look for.

Sorry Bev, not really a good answer to force others to have our backs in making sure the data is good & useful.    We are all hoping to have that other set of eyes.

In Columbus Tami and I print off (make pdfs) of the reports and email them to who needs to look at it.  We make the option person verify the option list the HR guy look at the State Aid report etc.  If they don't look it is their problem they had the data. 

But when NDE contacts the Superintendent about an issue they always come to me to find an answer.



   
Thanks so much Kristy.  Those are all good ideas.  I'm going to give the 3 ring binder and signing off a try.  I agree that NDE needs to train admin on the reports.  I also agree it would be helpful to have something that shows what all the reports are and what and where to look for.

I am also wondering if the Dashboard can provide some of the checkoff information for Administrators.  It might be an easier platform for them to review.  Just a thought, and of course that would only really be for student data.

Does anyone know if NDE ever meets with the superintendents where they can force feed them info about the data and reports?
