PID Detailed Discrepancy Errors

 

The UNIQUE-ID application database manages and stores identifying information on students who are reported to TEA through PEIMS. EDITPLUS provides an automatic process for demographic data in the UNIQUE-ID system to be synchronized with the Person Identification Database (PID). Occasionally, there are discrepancies in the data when the data is updated. Differences between minor demographic discrepancies and major demographic discrepancies are summarized below:

Minor Demographics

Minor demographic discrepancies include discrepancies between middle name, generation code, gender, race, and ethnicity. Minor discrepancies produce a report when there is a mismatch between a district's submitted record and the data that displays in PID and Unique-ID. Students identified on this type of report do not generate a PID error, but the discrepancies are reported so that they may be corrected in PID and Unique-ID. These discrepancies do not count towards a district's overall PID Error Rate.

Major Demographics

Major demographic discrepancies include discrepancies between Texas State Student Unique-ID, student ID, first name, last name, and date of birth. Major demographic discrepancies produce a report when there is an error between PID/Unique-ID data and an enrolled student's demographic information contained in a 100/101 (student data) record. The report contains error codes and error messages that districts must correct. These errors count towards a district's overall PID Error Rate.

Additional Detailed Information

The PEIMS EDITPLUS User Technical Documentation contains descriptions of PID discrepancy error messages as well as suggestions on how to correct PID errors.
