As you prepare your 2011-2012 program year data for import, please remember the following important points:
- Be sure to include all required information in your import.
- Optional information is not required in the Galileo database, but failure to include this information may adversely affect future report filtering.
- Any omitted optional data can be imported at any time throughout the program year, either as part of GDI or as a separate process – contact ATI for more information.
ATI provides guidance and ongoing recommendations to assist in the planning, construction, and review of district assessments through its Assessment Planner and Educational Management Services staff. Used by districts to help ensure assessments meet district needs, the Assessment Planner is particularly useful when determining what standards to asses, test length, and test delivery dates.
Learn how your district can benefit from the Assessment Planner and other Galileo tools by registering for a K-12 online overview. If you’re currently using Galileo, contact your Field Services Coordinator to learn more about the tools Galileo brings to you.
