2016-17 MSDS Collection Component Matrix
This matrix indicates which components are required (R), conditional (C), or optional (O) for each collection. Those criteria identify the system expectations for each component and characteristic. Please note that all the data collected by CEPI and MSDS are required for reporting purposes, however not all data is applicable to every student. Therefore the system cannot always require each data element. Detailed explanations of required, conditional and are located at the bottom of this page. Click the PDF or Excel icon next to a component to view its data elements and business rules. Each collection has multiple components.
World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is the ultimate authority on XML data types. All collection schemas will reference the W3C definitions for the base data types. Please reference the appropriate collection schema and the W3C to ensure a valid file submission.
Please note: the information contained in these documents is effective as of the 2016-17 school year rollover in mid-September 2016.
