NYS Data Validation Service (Certify)
This service provides an automated review of the data quality found in district source systems. Customized feedback is provided on a daily basis to assist district staff in making data corrections. This process will increase the efficiency and accuracy of the data collection and reporting initiative. The New York State Data Validation Service will apply the Level 0 rules for State data reporting to the data in a district’s student information system and special education data system on a nightly basis. The service produces easy to read reports detailing any reporting discrepancies at the student level. These online, school-targeted error reports allow districts to review and address data issues before data submission deadlines. Billing is based upon most recent verified BEDS day K-12 enrollment as reported in L2RPT.
