5.3.Discipline DVM Reports #

Each of the Data Validation Monitoring (DVM) reports for Discipline will display students whose coding is triggering the indicator.

Best Practice: Run each of these reports every time a new current year summer PEIMS file is loaded to stay abreast of any developing issues.

6.Best Practices #

To enhance data quality, we have provided some best practices.

Review the discipline data at least at the end of every six weeks.

Provide the following staff with a copy of discipline reports:

  • Personnel responsible for assigning discipline
  • Personnel responsible for coding discipline
  • Personnel responsible for inputting discipline
  • Personnel responsible for reporting discipline
  • Personnel responsible for reviewing discipline data

Establish groups for each of the above and share reports for discussion.

Look for data swings and dive into the granular level to discover.

Be predictive and proactive when discovering issues.

Review policies and procedures.

Use data to support decisions.
