On 4/27/18, API 4.0 External UAT (User Acceptance Testing) released:
External API 4.0 UAT:
- The API 4.0 External UAT is now available for LEA’s. LEA’s will use the same Key and Secret they used for API 3.0 testing. To request access to the API 4.0 UAT, please submit a ticket through our Self-Service Portal.
When a student with multiple concurrent enrollments in JTED and non-JTED school and moved from the non-JTED school to another non-JTED school, and there was a gap between the 2 non-JTED school enrollments, that gap would not be represented with the appropriate interval in ADM.
The projected Average Daily Membership (ADM) calculation for AOI students was incorrect. The projected ADM calculation for AOI students is a multiple step process.
1. Calculate average daily instructional minutes by dividing the total number of reported instructional minutes by the number days in the interval.
2. Calculate expected annual instructional minutes by multiplying average daily minutes by the number of remaining days in the school year.
3. Add earned annual instructional minutes to expected annual instructional minutes to get the projected annual instructional minutes.
4. Calculated the projected ADM by dividing the projected annual instructional minutes by 54,000.
In the first step, the number of days in the interval was being calculated as the number of days between the membership begin date and the end of the school year. Using this methodology the average daily instruction minutes calculation was producing artificially low numbers resulting in a unexpectedly small projected ADM for AOI students. The calculation was changed to consider the interval length as the number of days between the membership begin date and the date capture date. LEAs with AOI students should review their ADM 20 report to review the impact of this change.
ACE update to adequately project AOI student ADM
The ADM for AOI students has been calculating incorrectly when the record is prepopulated with a year-end status and a membership end date. The calculation has been changed to assume these students attend for the entire school year and projects the number of attendance minutes a student will accrue over the entire year in the ADM calculation. This change will more accurately project the ADM.
