Attached please find a guide from the Massachuetts DESE outlining the SIF Transmission Reports to help users review their data transmissions and clear validation errors.
We are posting them in iPass Help to provide a helpful resource to the users that do state reporting via SIF transmission.
Statement from Massachusetts DESE:
Purpose of transmission reports
This document details 5 transmission reports which are created for data and error diagnostic purposes. Depending on the collection report, whether it is SCS or EPIMS, these reports will display data as provided by the district. These reports are generated before the data gets quick, full and cross validated. There are very few data elements which are either calculated/translated on these reports, but they are specifically mentioned on the report description to eliminate any confusion.
