RE: Tip of the Week - Quick Correction
This week's Tip highlighting a specific feature or process in the EDExpress software:
Using Quick Correction
Feature/Process: Under "Process" on the main menu bar is an option called "Quick
Correction." This option allows you to make corrections on a student's ISIR without
having to open the student's record. Once in Quick Correction mode, type the student's
SSN, name identifier and transaction you wish to correct. After clicking on "Continue,"
make the necessary field updates, then click on save. This will reset the screen, allowing
you to correct another student record without having to exit the Quick Correction
option. When you have finished making corrections, click on Close, which will save the
corrections you have made. You can then export these corrections just as you would
export corrections made on the SAR/ISIR tab. If you have made corrections in both
Quick Corrections and the SAR/ISIR areas, EDExpress exports these in one file,
CORRXXIN.***, where XX is the process year and *** is the sequential file extension
assigned by the software.
Why you should use it: Using Quick Correction will save you time if you know the
correct values for specific fields on a student's ISIR, as you won't have to open and
close each student record. You can also use Quick Correction to add your institution
(with PIN/DRN) to records not in your database. For destination points with more than
one institution code, Quick Correction allows you to change the originating institution
for each student if necessary.
Note: Quick Correction does not look at the ISIR upon saving, and therefore does not
run edits on the data to ensure all necessary data was appropriately corrected (as the
software does when saving corrections on the SAR/ISIR tab).
