STAAR 3-8 & STAAR 3-8 ALT- Accepted Data File Layout
This file is typically a text file (.TXT)
Historical files may be a data file (.DAT)
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO LOAD ANY FILE INTO THE Cambium/ETS/Pearson sections of STAAR 3-8/EOC/TELPAS/TELPAS Alt IF it has “_SF_” or “SIRS” in the title. These are SDR/SIRS location files and you are attempting to load them in the wrong area!
ATTENTION: Districts have notified us that Cambium will be placing the state agreed upon data file formatted test results directly into the District Test Coordinator’s Cambium inbox and the naming convention should appear named as something similar to the example below:
Example of Fall 2021 EOC file
District Test Coordinator’s Cambium inbox is named 1321_EOC_CCCDDD_XXXXXXXXISD_v1.txt
If you are attempting to load state assessment files into OnDataSuite they MUST be the file Cambium provided to district test coordinators within their TIDE folder.
It CANNOT be a file you generated via the Cambium report center.
Currently, this file is a fixed length TXT file provided by Cambium. Prior year files came from ETS or Pearson and were also formatted as TXT.
File cannot be compressed or zipped.
File name cannot contain spaces.
When naming files, only use letters, numbers, dashes or underscores.
