Looking Up Records

 

 

Whenever you log in to NRSpro.com you will always see the “Record Management” page first.  This is “home” in the system.  Pretty much everything you need to do on a day-to-day basis starts here, so if you get lost look for and click on the “Record Management” tab to return to it:

 

 

 

Looking Up Individual Records

 

Naturally you will want need to look up records for individuals on a regular basis.  This is easily done from the “Record Management” Page.  Notice the area indicated below:

 

 

This is the “ID Search” area and allows you to locate records by ID Number.  In order to find a matching record, you must know the type of ID that the examinee used and the number.  Select the appropriate ID Type from the list of all possible types in the “ID Type” menu.  Then enter the appropriate number in the “ID Number” area.  When you click the “Select” button the system will search for the matching record.  If it is found, it will display the record on the “Current Record” page.  It is also possible to search for partial ID Numbers if you only know a portion of the number or believe the record may have been entered with one or more incorrect digits.  See the Searching on Partial Information in Names, ID Numbers, Etc. section for more information.  Once the record is found it will be displayed for viewing, printing, or editing.  See Viewing, Updating, and Printing Individual Records for more information.

 

Naturally you will not always know the ID number used for a particular record, so it is also possible to search by Last Name, First Name, Last and First Name together, or on partial names.  This is done using the area indicated below:

 

 

For name searches you have several options for matching on the last name, the first name, or both.  Choose the kind of match you want for each name part from the drop-down menu that appears to the left of the name:

 

·       “is”: The default, this chooses names that exactly match what you type.

·        “starts with”: Chooses names that start with the exact letters you type.  Use this to search for initials.

·       “sounds like”: Chooses names based roughly on what they sound like.  This is not extremely accurate, but it can be useful if you’re not sure of the spelling for a name.

·       “ends with”: Chooses names that end with the exact letters you type.

·       “contains”: Chooses names that contain the exact letters you type anywhere in the name.

 

It is also possible to search for partial names that begin and end with specific letters or where the letters in given positions are not certain.  See the Searching on Partial Information in Names, ID Numbers, Etc. section for more information.

 

Once the match type is chosen, enter the name or names.  If you want to search on just a last name or first name, leave the other name blank.  Click the “Select” button to perform the search.  If only one match is found, the system will display the record as described in Viewing, Updating, and Printing Individual Records.  If more than one match is found—which is usually the case with name searches—it will display the list of matching records on the “Selected” page as described in Viewing and Printing Reports for Selected Records.

 

 

Selecting Groups of Records by Location, Date Range, or Status

 

Beneath the ID Number and Name search areas you will find an area that allows you to select records by testing location, date range, status, or any combination thereof:

 

 

Once the parameters you want to use have been entered you can select the records by clicking the matching “Select” button on the far right:

 


The easiest way to explain how this works is by example:

 

·       To select records for examinees that tested at a testing center between January and May of 2002:  Choose the testing center’s “All Sites” option from the list (if not already selected), type in “01-01-2002” in the first “Dates” box and “05-31-2002” in the second box.  Click “Select”.

 

·       To select records that tested at a testing center on May 15th, 2002 and passed:  Choose the center’s “All Sites” option, type in “05-15-2002” in either box, select “Passed” as the Status and click “Select”.

 

·       To select records from a testing center waiting on essay scores:  Choose the center’s “All Sites” option, select “Pending” as the Status and click “Select”.

 

·       To select all records in the jurisdiction that tested in January of 2002:  Choose the state or province, type in “01-01-2002” in the first “Dates” box and “01-31-2002” in the second box.  Click “Select”.

 

·       To select records from a specific addendum site that passed:  Choose the addendum site from the list, select “Passed” as the status, and click “Select”.

 

Many other combinations are possible, but these examples should help you see how to perform these kinds of record selections for any group.

 

If more than one record is selected it will display the list on the “Selected” page as described in Viewing and Printing Reports for Selected Records.

 

 

Selecting Groups of Records by Batch or Status

 

If your login account has appropriate access you will find a section on the Record Management screen that allows record selections by Batch and Status:

 

 

The drop-down menu will display all Batches created at your location in the last 30 days.  It will also display the Essay batches or Mailing batches that are created by the system whenever essay scores are entered or mailed answer sheets are processed.  To select the records in a given Batch, just select the Batch from the list and choose the appropriate Status (or “Any” if you don’t want a specific Status).  Then click the matching “Select” button.

 

As an example, this can be used to find anyone that Passed or is waiting on an essay (Pending) for a specific batch after the batch is processed.  This can also be used to easily recover the list of records in a Batch if you are automatically logged out while working with a Batch you have just scanned or faxed.

 

If more than one record is selected it will display the list on the “Selected” page as described in Viewing and Printing Reports for Selected Records.

 

 

Selecting Groups of Records by Other Criteria

 

Often you will want to select groups of records from the system that don’t fall into simple categories.  You might want to do this to get an idea of how many people tested in a given period of time or to print a list of examinees that tested in a given area or from a given instructional center.  All of these things and more are done using the techniques explained in this section.  To start, notice the “Custom Record Selection” bar at the bottom of the “Record Management” page:

 

 

Click on this bar to expand the Custom Record Selection area:

 

 

This area is used to build “custom selections”.  A custom selection is any grouping of data such as all examinees that tested in a given date range, all examinees that passed, all examinees that come from a given city, or any such combination.  Notice the “Requirements” menu at the bottom:

 

 

“Requirements” are the criteria that must be met for records to be selected, such as a date range or pass/fail status.  You can select any requirement that is on this list, and when you click the “Add Requirement” button to the right the requirement will be added to the list of requirements shown in the selection area above it.  You can find a list of the available Requirements and a description of how each works in Custom Record Selection Requirements.

 

 

Adding Requirements

 

For now, try selecting the GED Testing Age Range Requirement from the menu and click the “Add Requirement” button.  Your screen should then look something like this:

 

 

Notice that the GED Testing Age Range Requirement is now shown in the Custom Record Selection area.  Every time you add a requirement it will be added to the list and shown here.  Now notice that the GED Testing Age Range Requirement has added new entry boxes containing the number “0”.  These represent the lower and upper ages of the examinee age range for which you would like to select records.  To select all of the records belonging to examinees that tested between the ages of 18 and 20, enter “18” in the top box and “20” in the bottom box as shown below:

 

 

When you are ready to select the matching records click the “Select Records” button:

 

 

All records belonging to examinees that were at least 18 and had reached (but not passed) their 20th birthday will be selected and displayed on the “Selected” page as described in Viewing and Printing Reports for Selected Records.

 

Now imagine that you want to further narrow down the scope of the selected records to those that were between the ages of 18 and 20 and that also passed the test.  This is done by adding an additional Requirement under Custom Record Selection.  Find the GED Status Requirement on the drop-down menu and select it, then click the “Add Requirement” button.  When you have done so your screen should look similar to the following:

 

 

Notice that both the GED Testing Age Range and GED Status Requirements are now shown in Custom Record Selection, with GED Status at the bottom.  Also, notice that a new menu has appeared in the GED Status Requirement that allows you to select the current testing status you want to base your selection on.  Since in our example we’re interested in records for examinees that have passed the test, change the value shown to “Passed” and click the “Select Records” button as described earlier.  As before the records that meet the requirements will be selected and displayed as described in Viewing and Printing Reports for Selected Records.

 

 

Removing Requirements and Starting Over 

 

Notice the “Remove” button that appears on each Requirement that you add:

 

 

You can click this button on any Requirement to remove it from the list of Requirements under Custom Record Selection.  If you mistakenly add a Requirement or want to change a Custom Record Selection without starting over, this allows you to individually remove Requirements that have been added.

 

Now suppose that you want to perform a new “Custom Record Selection” or you made a mistake and want to start over.  In the “Custom Record Selection” area, find and click the “Start New” button:

 

 

This will erase any Requirements you have previously added to the list with the “Add Requirement” button so you can start over. 

 

 

Selecting Groups of Records Based on a List of ID Numbers

 

By now you may have noticed the “ID Number List” area that appears at the top of the Custom Record Selection area:

 

 

This area allows you to select any group of records based on the record ID Number.  You can type a list of ID Numbers into the box in the middle, or you can cut-and-paste a list into this box from Excel, Notepad, or some other program.  Each ID Number needs to be on a separate line, and the list can’t be longer than about 10,000 ID Numbers.

 

By entering such a list in the box and clicking the “Select Records” button you can select all of the matching records as described in Viewing and Printing Reports for Selected Records.

 

WARNING:   The ID Number List area supports Social Security Numbers, Social Insurance Numbers and Access Codes.  It does not support Jurisdiction IDs or other ID types.

 

Note that you can combine the ID Number list with any number of other Requirements by using the “Add Requirement” process as described earlier.  This would allow you to select only records from the list that matched on other criteria, such as only those that have passing status.

 

Also notice the “Clear” button on the far right; clicking this button will clear any ID Numbers that you have typed into the box.  When the ID Number box is cleared it is effectively removed from any record selections you make.

 

 

Selecting Based on “All” Requirements or “Any” Requirement

 

Finally, notice the menu at the top of the Custom Record Selection area to the left of the “Select Records” button:

 

 

This allows you to choose whether you want the system to select records that match all of the Requirements you have added, or if you want it to select records if they match any one of the Requirements.  In other words, the “All Requirements must be met for Selection” option is more restrictive, the “Any Requirements must be met for Selection” option is less restrictive.

 

The “All Requirements must be met for Selection” option is the default because it is the most commonly used.  In our earlier example we selected records based on the GED Testing Age Range and GED Status Requirements, and only those records were selected which had an age between 18 and 20 and a status of “Passed”.  If we were to repeat that example and change this option to “Any Requirement can be met for Selection”, the system would select all records that matched the 18 to 20 age Requirement and would add to that group all the records that had a status of “Passed”.  The age 18-20 group will be selected whether they had a status of passed or not, and the “Passed” group will additionally be selected whether or not the age is between 18 and 20.  In other words it will select two separate groups of records, more records than were previously selected with the “All Requirement must be met for Selection” option.

 

 

Custom Record Selection Requirements

 

This section describes each of the individual Requirements that can be added using the “Add Requirement” button in the Custom Record Selection area of the Record Management page.

 

 

GED Status

 

This Requirement selects based on the testing status of the record.  The following status options are available:

 

1)     Incomplete – Records that have not completed the full battery of tests.

2)     Pending – Records that contain a Writing test that has not yet received an essay score.

3)     Passed – Records that have completed the battery and met the jurisdiction’s passing requirements.

4)     Non-Passed – Records that have completed the battery and did not meet the jurisdiction’s passing requirements.

5)     Relinquished – Records that have completed the battery and met the jurisdiction’s passing requirements, but have since that time had the status revoked (typically at the request of the examinee).

 

 

Completed Tests (Passed or Failed)

 

This Requirement selects based on the test completion status of the record.  All records are included that have completed the full battery, whether they passed or failed.

 

 

Not Passed (Incomplete or Failed)

 

This Requirement selects based on the test completion status of the record.  All records are included that have never completed the full battery or that completed the battery but did not meet the passing requirements.

 

 

Last Tested at Location

 

This Requirement selects records based on the last location the examinee tested at. Depending on the user’s access, records can be selected at the Jurisdiction, Testing Center, or Addendum Site level.  Choosing a Jurisdiction will select records for all students that lasted tested within that state or province.  Choosing a Testing Center will select records for all students that last tested at that particular center or one of its Addendum Sites.  Choosing an Addendum Site will select the records of only those students that last tested at that specific Addendum Site.

 

Note that if a student has tested at more than one location they will only be selected for the last or most recent location.  For example, if an examinee tests at more than one testing center this Requirement will select that Examinee’s record only if they last tested at that center.  In this example, the records will not be selected if the examinee at one time tested at the selected center but has since then tested at a different center.

 

 

Last Tested Date Range

 

This Requirement selects records based on the last date of testing.  In other words, it will select records for which the most recent test date falls in the selected date range.  Records will not be selected if they contain test dates that fall in the given date range but the most recent test date is outside the given date range.

 

To select records based on a single specific date, enter the same date twice.

 

 

Tested at Location

 

This Requirement selects records based on testing at any time at the selected location.  In other words, this will select records for examinees that tested at the given location at any time during their testing history.  Depending on access, records may be selected at the Jurisdiction, Testing Center, or Addendum Site level.

 

 

Testing Date Range

 

This Requirement selects records that contain testing dates that occur during the given date range.  In other words, records will be selected for examinees that tested at any time during the given date range.

 

To select records based on a single specific date, enter the same date twice.

 

 

First Tested Date Range

 

This Requirement selects records based on the first date of testing.  In other words, it will select records for which the oldest test date falls in the selected date range.  Records will not be selected if they contain test dates that fall in the given date range but the first or oldest test date is outside the given date range.

 

To select records based on a single specific date, enter the same date twice.

 

 

Essay Entry Date Range

 

This Requirement selects records based on the dates that Writing test essay scores were entered into the record.  A record will be selected if the essay entry date for any Writing test falls in the given date range.

 

To select records based on a single specific date, enter the same date twice.

 

 

Created/Changed Date Range

 

This Requirement selects records that were first created or were last updated (changed) within the provided date range.  You might use this Requirement to find all records that were created or updated during a given period.

 

To select records based on a single specific date, enter the same date twice.

 

 

Option Enrollment Date Range

 

This Requirement selects records that have a recorded GED Option enrollment date within the provided date range.  This is the date recorded on the Options Authorization (E) form as “Date Enrolled in GED Option Program”.

 

To select records based on a single specific date, enter the same date twice.

 

 

Testing Version

 

This Requirement selects records based on the version of the test that was taken.  The following options are available:

 

1)     GED 2002 – Records for examinees that took any part of the 2002 version of the GED.

2)     GED 1988 – Records for examinees that took any part of the 1988 version of the GED.  This also usually includes “archive” records that tested before 1988.

 

 

Testing Version/Language

 

This Requirement selects records based on the version and the language of the test that was taken.  The following options are available:

 

1)     GED 2002 – English – Records for examinees that took any part of the 2002 version of the GED in English.

2)     GED 2002 – Spanish – Records for examinees that took any part of the 2002 version of the GED in Spanish (this language and version started in 2004).

3)     GED 2002 – French – Records for examinees that took any part of the 2002 version of the GED in French (this language and version started in 2004).

4)     GED 1988 – English – Records for examinees that took any part of the 1988 (or earlier) version of the GED in English.

5)     GED 1988 – Spanish – Records for examinees that took any part of the 1988 (or earlier) version of the GED in Spanish.

1)               Regular Print

2)               Large Print

3)               Braille

4)               Audiocassette

 

 

Special Accommodations Used

 

This Requirement selects all records that indicate that Special Accommodations were used during testing.  Special Accommodations are indicated using the Accommodation Tracking Answer Sheets.

 

 

Moved to Another Center

 

This Requirement selects records that started at the selected testing center and have since started testing at another testing center.  It can be used to locate records that have “moved” to another testing center.  For example, you can combine it with the GED Status Requirement to find examinees that started at your testing center and have since completed the test and passed at another testing center.

To use this Requirement, make sure your own testing center (or the one you want to search on) is selected for both testing centers.  For the “Last Testing Date” enter the start date of the search.  All records that have moved to another center since the date you enter will be selected.

 

 

GED Testing Age Range

 

This Requirement selects records based on the examinee’s age at the date of last testing.  It does not select records based on the current age, or the age the examinee would be at present.

 

To use it, enter the starting and ending ages that you would like to search on.  Records will be selected for all examinees whose age at the date of last testing falls within the range you indicate.  The first date in the range is inclusive, while the second date in the range is not.  Thus you should typically increase the upper range by one year, as described below.

 

Ages are entered as decimal numbers, so for example to search for examinees that were at least 19 ½ and not yet 21 years old, enter “19.5” and “21” respectively.  Similarly, to find all 21 year-olds you would enter “21” and “22” as the lower and upper range, respectively.

 

 

Gender

 

This Requirement selects records based on the gender the examinee declared at the time their demographic information was entered.  Valid options are:

 

1)     [Blank] – Selects records for which no gender is specified.

2)     Male – Selects records for which the male gender is specified.

3)     Female – Selects records for which the female gender is specified.

 

 

Birth Date Range

 

This Requirement selects records for which the Birth Date falls within the given date range.  To select records based on a single specific date, enter the same date twice.

 

 

City

 

This Requirement selects records in which the examinee has recorded the given City name and State/Province name.  In other words, you can enter a city and state/province abbreviation and it will select all records that match based on the examinee’s address.  The match must be exact, although it is possible to search on partial information as discussed in Searching on Partial Information in Names, ID Numbers, Etc..

 

 

Race

 

This Requirement selects records based on the recorded Race of the examinee.  The selection of races available to an examinee to select from depends on the jurisdiction in which he or she registered, so not all of the options available will be appropriate within your jurisdiction.  The options available are:

 

1)     [Blank] – Selects records where no Race is provided.

2)     Hispanic Origin or Descent

3)     American Indian or Alaska Native

4)     Asian

5)     Black, African American, African Descent

6)     Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander

7)     White

8)     British

9)     French

10) Other European

11) African Canadian

12) First Nations

13) Mexican

14) Puerto Rican

15) Cuban

16) Central American

17) South American

18) Dominican

19) Other

 

Re-Taken One or More Tests

 

This Requirement selects records in which the examinee has re-taken at least one of the sub-tests of the battery.  In other words, a record will be selected if at least one of the tests has been taken more than once.

 

 

Last Year Attended

 

This Requirement selects based on the last year the examinee attended school, as reported when the demographic information for the record was completed.

 

 

No Tests Taken

 

This Requirement requires no additional input:  It selects records that are empty, or that contain only demographic information but no test records.

 

 

Tested at Correctional Facility

 

This Requirement selects records for examinees that have tested at a Center or Addendum Site that is designated as a Correctional Facility.  Any Testing Center or Addendum Site can be designated as a Correctional Facility by changing the “Correctional Facility” setting to the appropriate level in the Center or Site’s information.

 

See Viewing and Updating a Center’s Information and Viewing and Updating Information for an Addendum Site for information on updating the information for a testing location.

 

 

Addendum Site ID

 

This Requirement selects records based on the 2-digit Addendum Site ID associated with a testing center or Addendum Site.  All testing locations have at least one testing site, which has an Addendum Site ID of “00”.  Additional addendum sites for that testing center will have different 2-digit ID codes.

 

The Tested at Center and Last Tested at Center Requirements select all records for a testing center, regardless of the Addendum Site at which they tested.  Using this Requirement in conjunction with either the Tested at Center or Last Tested at Center Requirements you can narrow down the selection to records for examinees that tested at Addendum Sites.

 

 

Instructional Center Code

 

Some jurisdictions have enumerated their Instruction Centers (also known as “Preparation Sites”).  If your jurisdiction has done so then each Instruction Center has a 6-digit code assigned to it which will be recorded in the examinee’s record.  This Requirement is used to select records based on these 6-digit codes, and thus it can be used to select records for examinees that received instruction at a specific Instruction Center.

 

 

NCES Code

 

This Requirement selects records based on the 12-digit NCES code assigned to the record.  Leaving this blank or entering 12 zeroes “000000000000” can be used to select records for which no NCES code has been entered.  More information can be found in the NCES Code section.

 

 

County Code

 

This Requirement selects records based on the 3-digit County Code assigned to the record.  The U.S. federal government has such a code assigned to each county in each state in the U.S.  Because this code is usually entered into each record automatically based on the ZIP or Postal Code, this is a fairly reliable way to select records by County.  County codes for each state can be found at the following web site:  http://www.itl.nist.gov/fipspubs/co-codes/states.htm

 

 

ZIP/Postal Code

 

This Requirement selects records based on a matching ZIP or Postal Code.  This can be used to select records for people that tested in a geographic region, city, or neighborhood.  It is also possible to select records based on partial ZIP/Postal Codes (such as matching on the first 3 numbers or characters) as described in Searching on Partial Information in Names, ID Numbers, Etc.

 

 

Notes Present

 

This Requirement selects records that contain notes entered by an Examiner or by staff at the state or provincial head office.  Notes can be entered for any reason; this just lets you find records that contain notes.

 

 

Notes Contain Phrase

 

This Requirement selects records for which any notes entered at the testing center by an Examiner contain a specific word or phrase.  For example, entering the word “cheat” in this Requirement will cause it to select all records in which someone has entered notes that contain the word “cheat”, “cheating”, “cheated”, etc.

 

You can also use this as a technique for keeping track of certain records.  If you have some need to trace specific records over time you can come up with a “code” system and enter the appropriate code in the record notes.  Later, you can find all records with the matching code using this Requirement.

 

 

Custom 16 (Item 47/43)

 

This Requirement selects records which match based on the “Custom 16” item (Question 47 or 43) on the Demographic forms.  This is used for special purposes in some jurisdictions.

 

 

Custom 17 (Item 48/44)

 

This Requirement selects records which match based on the “Custom 17” item (Question 48 or 44) on the Demographic forms.  This is used for special purposes in some jurisdictions.

 

 

Custom 18 (Item 49/45)

 

This Requirement selects records which match based on the “Custom 18” item (Question 49 or 45) on the Demographic forms.  This is used for special purposes in some jurisdictions.

 

 

Scan Batch

 

This Requirement selects records that are contained within the specified Batch.  By itself this is functionally the same as selecting records as described in Selecting Groups of Records by Batch or Status and using the “Any Status” option.

 

 

Average Score Range

 

This Requirement selects records containing an Average Score within the specified range.  Enter a low and high score, and the Requirement will select all records for which the Average Score falls inside that inclusive range.  To select records with a single specific Average Score, enter the same score twice.

 

One use of this Requirement is to find low- or high-scorers.  For example, entering 700 and 800 as the score range will select records with an Average Score at or above 700.

 

Be aware that records with a status of Incomplete will have an Average Score of “0” (zero).  This is because the Average Score is not calculated for a record until the full battery is complete.

 

 

Writing Score Range

 

This Requirement selects records for which the highest (best) Writing test score is in the specified range.  Enter a low and high score, and the Requirement will select all records for which the best Writing test score falls within that inclusive range.  To select records with a single specific Writing score—such as all students with a perfect score of 800—enter the same score twice.

 

One use of this Requirement is to find low- or high-scorers on the Writing test.  For example, entering 700 and 800 as the score range will select records with a Writing score at or above 700.

 

Be aware that records containing a failing essay score will contain a Writing test with no score, which is considered the same as a score of “0” (zero).  Thus you can find all records for which students have failed the essay by entering “0” for both the low and high score.

 

Writing test records which have not yet received an essay score will not contain any Writing score at all.  To select those records, use the GED Status Requirement with the “Pending” status.

 

This Requirement only works for the GED 2002 and GED 2012 version of tests.  It is not currently possible to select records based on specific test scores with older versions of the test.

 

 

Social Studies Score Range

 

This Requirement selects records for which the highest (best) Social Studies test score is in the specified range.  Enter a low and high score, and the Requirement will select all records for which the best Social Studies test score falls within that inclusive range.  To select records with a single specific Social Studies score—such as all students with a perfect score of 800—enter the same score twice.

 

One use of this Requirement is to find low- or high-scorers on the Social Studies test.  For example, entering 700 and 800 as the score range will select records with a Social Studies score at or above 700.

 

This Requirement only works for the GED 2002 and GED 2012 version of tests.  It is not currently possible to select records based on specific test scores with older versions of the test.

 

 

Science Score Range

 

This Requirement selects records for which the highest (best) Science test score is in the specified range.  Enter a low and high score, and the Requirement will select all records for which the best Science test score falls within that inclusive range.  To select records with a single specific Science score—such as all students with a perfect score of 800—enter the same score twice.

 

One use of this Requirement is to find low- or high-scorers on the Science test.  For example, entering 700 and 800 as the score range will select records with a Science score at or above 700.

 

This Requirement only works for the GED 2002 and GED 2012 version of tests.  It is not currently possible to select records based on specific test scores with older versions of the test.

 

 

Reading Score Range

 

This Requirement selects records for which the highest (best) Reading test score is in the specified range.  Enter a low and high score, and the Requirement will select all records for which the best Reading test score falls within that inclusive range.  To select records with a single specific Reading score—such as all students with a perfect score of 800—enter the same score twice.

 

One use of this Requirement is to find low- or high-scorers on the Science test.  For example, entering 700 and 800 as the score range will select records with a Science score at or above 700.

 

This Requirement only works for the GED 2002 and GED 2012 version of tests.  It is not currently possible to select records based on specific test scores with older versions of the test.

 

 

Mathematics Score Range
