Assessment Record Updating Application (ARUA) Open for Editing 2021-22 Test Records (REPEAT)

The Assessment Record Updating Application (ARUA) is currently open for editing 2021-22 test records and will not close again until August 19.

ARUA Components Completed:

  • Virtual records have been created that indicate non-participation of required English Language Arts (ELA), Mathematics, and Science summative assessments based on data submitted in the Third Period Cumulative ADM collection for enrollment on May 2, 2022. A virtual record is created for the student if there is not a valid test in the required content areas as described by the grade of enrollment in the ADM collection.
  • Accountability fields (such as RCSchlPartic, RCSchlPrfrm and ParticSchlInstID) have been filled on all test records that were loaded by Friday, June 10 and indicate which tests are used for accountability reporting. These fields are not available in the ARUA download file, but the full set of fields are available through the Accountability Warehouse Extract (AWE) Assessment Student Extract or Bulk Download option. PLEASE NOTE that there is a one-day lag for changes to test records in the ARUA (district edits or newly loaded records) to be available in the Warehouse applications (AWE and Secure Assessment Reports).
  • Student group information such as race/ethnicity, special education, and other program flags have been filled on all test records that were loaded by Friday, June 10 from Third Period Cumulative ADM for students enrolled on the first school day in May (except the Migrant Education Flag, which is filled from the Oregon Migrant Student Information System, and the Homeless Flag, which is filled from the Summer Homeless collection). For more information on How to Edit Demographic and Program Fields and the ARUA File Format, see documents on the ODE district ARUA Resources webpage.
  • Virtual ELPA records have been created that indicate non-participation of the required ELPA test for English Learner (EL) students, based on data submitted in the Title III: Spring English Learners collection as of May 27. A virtual ELPA record is created for the student if there is not a valid ELPA test for any student identified as eligible for EL services during the current school year. (The EL collection will be open for review until June 27, 2022.)
  • PLEASE NOTE: First-year EL students with a virtual record will not be counted as a non-participant if the student has a valid ELPA test (indicated with data field EngLrnrCd = ‘B’ on the test record, from the AWE download).

ARUA Components Not Yet Completed:

  • ELA and Mathematics summative tests completed by June 17 (to be completed by July 1, 2022)
  • Oregon Extended Assessment records in ELA, Mathematics, and Science (to be completed by July 1, 2022)
  • Science tests partially completed (aka “Partials”) (to be completed by July 1, 2022)
