Questions on Batch File Uploading
Let's use this Discussion to ask and answer questions about collecting, formatting, and uploading your data.
In response to feedback received from the consortia members and State Readiness Coordinators, we have revised the file layouts and templates. The revised documents can be accessed on the Home page of the Technology Readiness Tool after logging in to www.TechReadiness.org and at www.assess4ed.net in the private group for SRCs.
The following changes have been made:
· Fields in the Device File Layout and School Survey File Layout that are required for gap analysis have been labeled as required. However, to allow flexibility in upload, the field may be left blank. Over time, fewer blanks should be present for these required fields to allow more complete gap analysis.
· The Device File Layout now includes two additional options for the Device Type field. Users can identify devices as Thin Client/VDI or Other in addition to the previously identified options.
If you have formatted files using the previously posted layouts, you do not necessarily need to recreate your files. Data that has already been uploaded does not need to be edited unless you would like to change a device’s designation of device type. If you would like to change a previously uploaded device’s type to Thin Client/VDI or Other, you may do so through the Devices Inventory/Edit Devices screen rather than via an upload if you prefer.
