SDC Release Notes
Known Issues Being Researched:
There are currently not any major know issues being researched. 
Corrected Issues:
For FY2014, the standard to meet a state indicator in grades 3 - 8 and grade 10 is 80% but the SDC calculations were still using the old standard of 75%.
FY2012 cut scores were being used for FY2013 Alternate Assessments.  This resulted in some of the Alternate Assessments being counted at a higher performance level than they should have.
