The DR MAP roster has behind the scenes mapping being done to it. (This will be removed for next year.)
Currently, these are the mapped paths.
Input from SIS = Output to MAP Roster
- African American/African Descent = Black or African American
- Bi-Racial = Multi-ethnic
- Caucasian = White
- Hispanic = Hispanic or Latino
- Native American/First Nation = American Indian or Alaskan Native
- Other or “blank” = Not Specified or Other
In the meantime – as long as there is SOMETHING in the field – it should not be erroring.
This is the info I recently received from our MAP rep… “The ethnicity field is actually not required for testing, but it IS required to show reports. So obviously we approach it as a required field.”
It doesn’t necessarily have to be actual ethnic coding, it can be “other” or “N/A” (not applicable).
Essentially on the roster file you can just copy/paste “other all the way down the column.
