This file is typically a text file (.TXT)
Historical files may be a data file (.DAT)

Important notice about the 2023 Assessment File Upload Process – Please read before uploading any data files!

TEA has notified districts that their released preliminary 2023 data files will have either fields that contain modified results OR empty field values until the Final Assessment results are published.

For more information on the scheduled data file release contents please refer to the TEA published Spring 2023 STAAR Reporting Resources document released on May 11, 2023: https://tea.texas.gov/about-tea/news-and-multimedia/correspondence/taa-letters/spring-2023-staar-reporting-resources

OnDataSuite has updated our system file importer to accept the data file that adheres to the the 2023 TEA released data file format. Before uploading any file, districts are HIGHLY encouraged to verify that the file they are attempting to upload has been formatted in accordance with the related assessment data file format specifications published here: https://tea.texas.gov/student-assessment/testing/student-assessment-overview/data-file-formats

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.

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:

District Test Coordinator’s Cambium inbox is named 1321_EOC_CCCDDD_XXXXXXXXISD_v1.txt

Please consult with the Texas Student Assessment Program Calendar of Events to determine the date the file will be released in your TIDE folder here

DO not attempt to load any Cambium STAAR EOC or STAAR EOC Alt files into this section if it has “_SF_” in the title. These are SDR location files and you are attempting to load them in the wrong file center area!

Other File Information

  • The current file is a fixed length TXT file provided by Cambium. Prior year ETS or Pearson files were formatted as .TXT.
  • File cannot be compressed or zipped.
  • File name cannot contain spaces.
  • When naming files, only use letters, numbers, dashes or underscores.

Best Practice:

  • Rename the downloaded file to include the Administration Month-Administration Year for easy identification
