Step 6: Report Schedule & Planning

Reporting Schedule

Winter/Spring

  • April 1 Deadline (Winter/Spring Data Collection):

    • Standard Report specifications must be ordered by April 1 (Noon Eastern Time) to be processed for a July delivery.  Standard Reports that are ordered on or before April 1 (Noon Eastern Time) will take priority over all other reporting and are expected to be delivered by July 15 following the data collection.

    • Standard Reports that are not ordered by April 1 (Noon Eastern Time) will be defined by the MSL data collection team and default columns will be used.  Schools who do not specify their order by April 1 (Noon Eastern Time) forfeit their ability to customize the report to their own specifications.  They will still receive a report – but it will include the default column selections. Schools that miss this deadline may still order supplemental reporting.

    • Supplemental Benchmark Reports and Supplemental Outcome Reports ordered by April 1 (Noon Eastern Time) will be delivered by July 31 following the data collection.

  • Ongoing Reporting (Winter/Spring Data Collection):

    • Supplemental Benchmark Reports and Supplemental Outcome Reports ordered after April 1 (Noon Eastern Time) will be delivered within 4 weeks of order or within 4 weeks of delivery of the Standard Reports, whichever is later.  

    • Supplemental Benchmark Reports and Supplemental Outcome Reports will be available for order until December 31 following the data collection.

Fall

  • November 1 Deadline (Fall Data Collection):

    • Standard Report specifications must be ordered by November 1 (Noon Eastern Time) to be processed for a February delivery.  Standard Reports that are ordered on or before November 1 (Noon Eastern Time) will take priority over all other reporting and are expected to be delivered by February 15 following the data collection.

    • Standard Reports that are not ordered by November 1 (Noon Eastern Time) will be defined by the MSL data collection team and default columns will be used.  Schools who do not specify their order by November 1 (Noon Eastern Time) forfeit their ability to customize the report to their own specifications.  However, schools that miss this deadline may order supplemental reporting.
