Memo Text

The Assessment Correction Engine (ACE) interface will be available to all districts from August 7 through August 21 at the ADE Data Center. Districts must use ACE to certify assessment data and may submit documentation to remove eligible students from their denominator for expected to test. All data, including no corrections needed, must be certified by the district superintendent no later than 5:00 p.m., August 21, 2024.

The School Performance Unit will provide an “ACE”-ing Test Corrections webinar for district- and school-level staff on August 5th at 1:00 PM.  Register now at

Even though superintendents must log in to certify their district’s data, they may assign a designee to make corrections on their behalf. Districts are strongly encouraged to review their participation rate data (percent tested) and enter any needed Reason Not Tested (RNT) codes and documentation as early as possible. Only data for the 2023-2024 school year can be changed.

The resulting post-appeal accountability information will be used in the ESSA School Index, School Performance Report Card, and Rewards/Recognition calculations. 

Contact the School Performance Unit at or (501) 682-7339 for more information regarding assessment corrections.
