Dear Partner:

We are pleased to announce the availability of our taped, online instructor-led training session titled, "The ISIR Analysis Tool for Beginners (for all Title IV Schools)."

Federal Student Aid designed the ISIR Analysis Tool to provide schools with a mechanism to analyze FAFSA data to determine the most common errors made by applicants while focusing on those that affect EFC and Federal Pell Grant eligibility. The ISIR Analysis Tool also helps all participating Title IV schools analyze verification data and the results of verification. The ISIR Analysis Tool is part of FAA Access to CPS online. Users can upload specific ISIR records that were verified by the school to determine the impact changes made as a result of verification had for applicants attending their campus. This process can help schools determine the top ISIR element changes that had an impact on EFC and use that information to assist with their discretionary verification or to enhance consumer information materials to educate applicants to provide more accurate information from the start.
