State and Real Time Data Validation. When submitting student data to the state, data tends to be incorrect and returned for re-submissions. Errors are fixed, resubmitted, and rejected once again. The cycle continues. Break the cycle with Level Data’s Data Validation Suites for your PowerSchool SIS – Real-Time Validation and State Validation.

The Real Time Validation lets you see where errors are occurring as data is entered and maintained, with colored fields and icons to alert you to areas needing attention.

The State Validation Suite validates data in your PowerSchool SIS in accordance to the PDE reporting guidelines, and identifies errors on a district-wide basis allowing for easy error correction. The State Data Validation Suite enhances PowerSchool by making sure that student, staff and district data are accurate. It remove the guess work and the need for creating numerous SQL reports to mirror the DQE rules. The state specific tool automatically validates and allows you to correct data BEFORE it is submitted to the state.

Your data never leaves the SIS, it requires little to no training, and the suite can save you up to 75% of your error correction time.
