Generic Test Upload

Districts can request an upload of assessment results that are not included in the Baseball Card report or are not suitable for test creation in Performance Matters.

Using the following data, create a file to load the required assessment results. The results display only in the Baseball Card reports.

Submit a Support Ticket

Submit a support ticket to have the results uploaded to the system. Files can either be attached to the ticket or added to the district FTP upload.

A new support ticket is required each time you send updated files to load new assessment results.

Use the Data

After the results are processed, they will display in the Other Metrics section of the Baseball Card report and can be used like any other assessment results.

The assessment is listed using the Score Description field from the results file. The results are labeled with the Score and the year from the Test Date field. As assessments are added using this process, additional assessment names display in the folder in alphabetical order.
