ACT scores in MSIS (Update)

Superintendents, Accountability Directors, and District Test Coordinators,

Some districts indicated that early graduates, who otherwise met the definition for Senior Snapshot, were not populating in the ACT Data Screen in MSIS.  As a result, the MDE has updated this data screen.  Please check your list for any additions that might need scores entered.  The deadline for updating the ACT Data Screen in MSIS has been extended until Friday, July 27th at 3:00 p.m. in order to accommodate any additional changes.

Additional Notes:

In order for a student to be included in the ACT Data Screen, the student must meet the definition of Senior Snapshot, which is:

Senior Snapshot captures ALL students who have been enrolled in a MS public school starting in month 1 of the 10th grade and continuing without interruption until either the end of month 9 of the 12th grade or until a completion status is entered, whichever comes first.

If you have any questions regarding this matter, you may respond to this email.

Thank you,

Alan Burrow, Director
