PID Detailed Discrepancy Errors
The Unique-ID application database manages and stores identifying information on students who are reported to TEA through PEIMS. EDIT+ provides an automatic process for demographic data in the Unique-ID system and synchronizes with the Person Identification Database (PID). Occasionally, discrepancies in the data occur when the data is updated. Differences between minor demographic discrepancies and major demographic discrepancies are summarized below:
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 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.
