This article explains how eC’s Half/Full Day is Extracted and identifies the status of an SIS's ability to include “Daily Attendance Equivalent” data in their extract.
How eC’s Half/Full Day is Extracted
Attendance Rate uses the column/field in the extract from DnA titled: “Daily Attendance Equivalent”. If the client is not importing in the equivalent field (a numeric value) the data for eC’s Full Day Rate calculates on the attendance flags/marks that are imported.
DnA is able to extract the Days Equivalent number from some SISs. The Adjust Attendance Rate works on the Half/Full Day number districts seen in eduCLIMBER, and the Half/Full Day number comes from the Days Equivalent number on the extract. Therefore, if the Days Equivalent number can be extracted from a SIS, then the district will see the Half/Full Days number in eduCLIMBER and can utilize the Adjusted Attendance Rate feature. Below is the current progress DnA has on extracting the Days Equivalent number based on SIS.
- For those systems that are ready, DnA is currently extracting the Days Equivalent Number and districts can begin utilizing Adjusted Attendance Rate immediately.
- For those systems that are in progress, DnA is currently in discussion with the SIS to see if we can work together to extract that number. Districts should be able to use Adjusted Attendance Rate in the future once the extract is ready.
- For those systems that are unavailable, DnA is planning to work with partnerships to see if they can help connect us with the SIS. Until this partnership is made, districts will not be able to utilize the Adjusted Attendance Rate.

Enabling Adjusted Attendance Rates (Ready)
If districts utilize an SIS where the extract is ready, Admins can Enable the Adjusted Attendance Rate option within System Configuration > District & Schools > District Information > Enable Adjusted Attendance Rate slider and then enter Rate Adjustments. Most numbers on the extracted file will be 0, 0.5, and 1. However, there may be some SISs that report 0, 0.25, 0.50, 0.75, and 1. Regardless of the extract, districts tend to focus on 0, 0.5, and 1. These are the numbers districts will enter within eduCLIMBER using the Adjusted Attendance Rate.
- Example: When 0-0.49 is found on the extract, show 0 in eduCLIMBER. When 0.5-1 is found on the extract, show 1 in eduCLIMBER.
