PMRN and FAIR: Glossary

PMRN – Progress Monitoring and Reporting Network

FAIR – Florida Assessments for Instruction in Reading.

K-2 EST – Kindergarten through second grade assessments scored by teachers using the Electronic Scoring Tool

3-12 WAM – Assessments for grades three through 12 that students are administered through the Web-based Assessment Module

FLKRS – Florida Kindergarten Readiness Screeners administered to all first time enrolled kindergarten students during the first thirty instructional days of school. Consists of the ECHOSTM and the FAIR.

ECHOSTM – Early Childhood Observational ScreenerTM

slide3

PMRN and FAIR: What is Different in 2011-2012

The PMRN is now the data collection, storage, and reporting method for the FLKRS. The FLKRS are required by Florida Statute to be administered within the first thirty instructional days of the school year.

To meet the needs of the Kindergarten teachers, the PMRN should be populated with the Kindergarten classes prior to the first day of school and no later than the beginning of the second week of school.

----------

The PMRN will be ready for the input of FLKRS data by Kindergarten teachers on July 12, 2011. If rostered by the district’s transmission of the Student and Staff Demographic Files, the K-2 EST and PMRN will also be ready for the testing of first and second grade students.

----------

The 3-12 WAM and PMRN will not be ready for the administration of the FAIR to grade 3-12 students until August 22.

slide4

Important Note

Once a score is saved for a given grade at a given school, the District’s submission and FLDOE’s subsequent import of Survey 8 into the PMRN will not roster students for that grade at that school.

slide5

What is Survey 8?

Survey 8 is a submission of district data files to the Florida Department of Education’s Public School Automated Student Database specifically for rostering the Progress Monitoring and Reporting Network (PMRN) at the beginning of the school year for the Florida Assessments for Instruction in Reading (FAIR), Florida Kindergarten Readiness Screener (FLKRS), and the Professional Development Log for Reading/Literacy Coaches (Coach’s Log).

Survey 8 is not a one-time event, but occurs almost weekly from July 5 until September 29, 2011.

Survey 8 does not replace Survey 6. Survey 6 will still be collected.

slide6

For which Schools are Districts to transmit Survey 8?

Only those schools utilizing the PMRN for the reporting of scores for the Florida Assessments for Instruction in Reading (FAIR), Florida Kindergarten Readiness Screener (FLKRS), and/or for the Professional Development Log for Reading/Literacy Coaches (Coach’s Log) need to have survey 8 transmitted by their district for rostering the PMRN.

A list of schools that are using the PMRN may be found at www.fcrr.org/pmrn/docs/pmrnfair_registration_sy1112.pdf. This list will be updated weekly through the end of September.

slide7

What formats are submitted with Survey 8?

  • There are two reporting formats submitted with survey 8:
  • Student Demographic Information
  • http://www.fldoe.org/eias/dataweb/database_1112/1112sdi.asp
  • 2) Staff Demographic Information
  • http://www.fldoe.org/eias/dataweb/database_1112/1112di.asp

slide11

What about the other fields in the

Staff Demographic Information file?

All other fields will be ignored by the PMRN, including Staff Number Identifier, Local (field 42).

Staff exempt from public records will be filtered by the Public School Automated Student Database. All staff forwarded to FLDOE’s Office of Technology and Information Services (OTIS) will be imported into the PMRN.

slide12

How will Survey 8 be transmitted to the PMRN?

Survey 8 is to be transmitted to the Public School Automated Student Database following the same procedures for all other survey submissions.

The Public School Automated Student Database will process the files and forward them to the Office of Technology and Information Services (OTIS) for import into the PMRN.

The Florida Center for Reading Research (FCRR) is not involved in the import of survey data into the PMRN.

slide13

How are Survey 8 files to be named?

Student Demographic Information is to be named DPSdd.GQ.F60775.Y11128

Staff Demographic Information is to be named DPSdd.GU.F61025.Y11128

Where dd is the district’s number and the last digit in the file name is the survey period. 

slide14

What is the Survey 8 processing schedule?

Survey 8 processing will begin on Thursday, July 5 and end on Thursday, September 29, 2011.

Initial files will be processed weekday mornings at 8:00 AM ET.

Batch updates will be processed weekday evenings at 4:00 PM ET.

The Public School Automated Student Database will pull the PMRN files after the Thursday night batch process on the following dates:

July 7 August 25

July 14 September 1

July 21 September 8

July 28 September 15

August 4 September 22

August 11 September 29

August 18

September 30

slide16

Does the district need to send a new initial each week?

No, once an initial file has been loaded to the database the district needs to send only batch updates.

Records added or changed on the Student and Staff Databases will be date stamped. Only new and changed data will be import into the PMRN by the Office of Technology and Information Systems (OTIS).

slide17

When does the district need to send batch update files?

  • The district should send batch update files after the initial files (student and staff) have been loaded to the database if the following occurs:
  • A new student or staff member needs to be added.
  • Information in a student or staff record needs to be changed.
slide18

Can the Student and Staff files be submitted at separate times?

It is preferred that Student and Staff files for a school be submitted during the same week (Friday through the following Thursday) so that matching records are available for loading into the PMRN system on the weekend.  If new records for students are submitted with no matching teacher record available the students will not be rostered.

slide19

What reports are available to districts in Survey 8?

All the Student Demographic Information and Staff Demographic Information initial and batch update edit and validation reports and files are available.

Edit reports are generated automatically.

Validation reports must be requested by the district.

slide20

Does a district need to transmit files every week?

No, files do not need to be transmitted every week.

However, schools within a district will not be able to begin student assessment until students are rostered.

FLKRS assessments begin on the second instructional day for a school. If a school’s start date is August 22, the data collection period (testing window) begins August 23. Districts whose schools begin August 22 may want to submit at least the kindergarten rosters the week of August 15.

Districts that have schools that begin on different dates should make multiple submissions. For example, a district with year-round schools beginning July 11 and schools on a traditional calendar beginning August 16 may transmit survey 8 data to the NWRDC the week of July 4 and August 8.

slide21

Which students are to be included in Survey 8?

Survey 8 should only include those students who are to be rostered in the PMRN for the reporting of progress monitoring scores in reading using the Florida Assessments for Instruction in Reading (FAIR) and the kindergarten students being administered the Florida Kindergarten Readiness Screener (FLKRS).

Not all students are progress monitored in reading and not all schools utilize the FAIR as the progress monitoring tool.

All students who scored Level 1 or 2 on the reading portion of the spring 2011 administration of the FCAT must be progress monitored. But the FAIR is not the required assessment.

All first time enrolled kindergarten students are to be administered the FLKRS.

slide22

Which students are to be included in Survey 8?

Schools/Districts may elect to expand the group of students tested. However, the district can elect not to use the FAIR. If the FAIR is not being used for progress monitoring, then the student should not be rostered in the PMRN.

Check with your district’s assessment, curriculum, and reading offices to determine if the district will be using the FAIR and which students at the schools will be tested. Determination is based on the district’s K-12 Comprehensive Reading Plan.

Please coordinate which FCAT Level students to submit and what course code(s) should be used to determine the Responsible Instructor for Reading.

slide23

Which students are to be included in Survey 8?

The Bureau of School Improvement has requirements for Differentiated Accountability (DA) schools that may be different than those found in the district’s K-12 Comprehensive Reading Plan. DA schools may be required to utilize the FAIR and depending on the type of DA school specific grades may be required to participate.

slide24

What determines if a student is or is not imported and rostered into the PMRN?

To be imported into the PMRN, the student’s school of enrollment must be registered and the grade activated.

Principals register their schools as directed by the district’s assessment, curriculum, or reading contact. Registration is completed following the links found at www.fcrr.org/pmrn.

To view the list of schools registered and the grades activated, see http://www.fcrr.org/pmrn/pmrnfair_registration_sy1112.pdf.

slide25

What determines if a student is or is not imported and rostered into the PMRN?

To be imported into the PMRN, the student must have the nine-digit Social Security number of a Responsible Instructor for Reading in field 42 of the Student Demographic Information file AND this number must be valid and have a unique association* with a staff member in the Staff Demographic Information file.

The staff member must be reported at the same school as the student.

* The number must be a valid SSn and cannot be shared between two or more persons in the staff file.

slide26

What determines if a student is or is not imported and rostered into the PMRN?

All students who meet the criteria:

- school and grade active in the PMRN

- valid format with all required information in the student file

- have a nine-digit number in field 42 of the student file that matches a

number in field 2 in the staff file

will be imported into the PMRN.

There is not a flag for FCAT level in the files submitted. All student records that meet the above criteria will be imported into the PMRN and rostered into a class for progress monitoring using the Florida Assessments for Instruction in Reading.

slide27

Who is the Responsible Instructor for Reading?

Districts and schools set their own criteria as to who will be the Responsible Instructor for Reading. In elementary schools, it may be the homeroom teacher or a reading resource teacher.

In secondary schools, FCAT level 1 and 2 students are to be in a special reading class. It may be an explicitly defined reading class or it could be a content area class (social studies or science) with a reading component (CAR-PD = Content Area Reading – Professional Development).

FCAT level 3 – 5 students are typically assigned to their language arts teacher for reading.

slide28

What happens if a student is listed in the Student Information file twice?

Students have only one responsible instructor for reading, thus they should only have one record in the Student Information file.

If there are two records for the student, the information (responsible instructor) in the last record listed will determine into which class the student will be rostered.

slide29

Does every submission need to be complete ?

Every transmission needs to include both student and staff information files, but the files only need to include the information for those students and staff who are to be added or edited (moved to a different responsible instructor).

slide30

Can the placement of a student be changed through a subsequent import? Can rosters be edited?

  • If the responsible instructor for reading for a student changes, a second import can move a student from one class to another.
  • There are two exceptions that can prevent a student from being edited by an import.
  • If a student has been modified (enrolled or moved) by a User through
  • the PMRN User Interface, an import will not move the student to a
  • different teacher assignment. Placement through the UI takes priority.
  • 2) If any student in a grade at a school has a score saved or submitted,
  • subsequent imports will not allow any student to be moved to a
  • different responsible instructor for reading.
slide31

Can students be removed from the PMRN?

Imports of files submitted by the district are only additive. If a student record is in a data submission and is later deleted from the Student Database, the student will be removed from the Public School Automated Student Database files but will be untouched in the PMRN.

The absence of a student in a Student Information file does not remove the student from the PMRN.

Through the PMRN User Interface, a school’s reading coach can withdraw students from the PMRN.

slide32

For the Coach’s Log, which staff members should be included in the Staff Information file?

For the purpose of the Coach’s Log, at least one transmission of the Staff file should include every instructional staff member at the school. Reading coaches are required to identify which faculty members they work with each week. The import loads the PMRN’s “Inservice” table so that the Reading Coach does not need to insert the names of the staff members.
