Error 6495


  • Short Text:  For Credential, an invalid combination of Diploma Type and Achievement Category Descriptor was submitted.

 

  • Long Text: For Credential, an invalid combination of Diploma Type and Achievement Category Descriptor was submitted. The valid combinations are 'Regular Diploma' + 'Diploma Earned', 'High School Equivalency Certificate Other Than GED' + 'Diploma Earned', and 'Other Diploma' + 'Certificate Earned'.  

 

  • Business Rules:

    • Logic--As type, award date, and academic credential descriptor are all required, this rule checks for the three valid combinations of Diploma Type and Achievement Category Descriptor. This rule is not run for Possible Full-Term Dropout (FTD) records.

    • Calculation--Valid combinations: 'Regular Diploma' + 'Diploma Earned', 'High School Equivalency Certificate Other Than GED' + 'Diploma Earned', 'Other Diploma' + 'Certificate Earned'

 

  • How to Fix: Verify whether or not the student in question earned a diploma or a certificate for achievement. You must also verify which type of credential the student obtained. Once you have ascertained the correct achievement and credential type, compare the combination to the three valid combinations:

    • Regular Diploma + Diploma Earned

    • High School Equivalency Certificate Other Than GED + Diploma Earned

    • Other Diploma + Certificate Earned

    • Ensure the combination the student has aligns with one of these options, and then modify the current values to match the appropriate and correct combination.

 

  • Example: District Deb notices an error on Weston’s record about mismatched graduation credential information. She discovers Weston recently graduated from New Falls High School, earning a regular diploma, but his record states he earned a certificate. She verifies with the school to check which one is correct and finds Weston did earn the traditional diploma. To clear the error, Deb removes the incorrect values and enters a valid combination of the values Regular Diploma and Diploma Earned.
