2020-21 Collection Component Matrix

2020-21 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 optional are located at the bottom of this page. Click the Component Name link to view the component's data elements and business rules in PDF format, or click the Excel icon for the same information in Excel format. Each collection has multiple components.

World Wide Web Consortium 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 2020-21 school year rollover in mid-September 2020.
