Preliminary 2011 MCAS and MCAS-Alt results are now available in the MCAS drop boxes and in the EDW. Preliminary data are embargoed and may not be publicly released.
The MCAS drop boxes can now be accessed directly from the EDW, and all EDW users have been granted the security access. You can find the link by going to Public Folders -> ESE MCAS Reports and clicking on "Pre-Run Reports and Data Files". This leads to student roster reports (school level), test item analysis reports (school and district level), and performance summary reports (school and district level).
In addition, the following EDW reports with preliminary 2011 data are available:
- Preliminary district reports: R-301, R-302, R-306
- Preliminary school reports: R-401, R-402, R-406
- Preliminary student reports: R-606, R-610, R-613, R-616, R-617
- Preliminary growth reports for ELA only: G-601, G-602
You can access these reports through a new, more user-friendly, interface by going to Public Folders -> ESE MCAS Reports and clicking on “ESE MCAS – 2011 Preliminary Report View”. You will see a list of available reports. The three icons to the left of the report name are hyperlinks to run the report as HTML, PDF, or to schedule a report to run in the background, in that order. If you roll over the report name, a “sample” image appears to help you identify the report you want to run.
Please refer to the message on the EDW Welcome screen (after logging in) for additional information about current and future improvements to the EDW, including the PowerPoint presentation and Q&A from the recent Webex presentations.
