On your Home page, you’ll need to click on the Auto Pilot Alert. With the update to Auto Pilot, even if your district uses multiple accommodation vendors, there will only be one link to select. The link will be highlighted in red when there are new student accommodation updates that need to be approved. The number out to the side will tell you how many students are in the alert that needs to be approved. The link will be highlighted in green where all accommodation updates have been approved and no new accommodation updates are pending.
The new Exclamation point alert will tell the campus user when there is a mapping error that needs to be corrected at the district level. Mapping errors are new accommodations or subject areas that are in the latest version of the vendor file that needs to be associated with TestHound accommodations. The mapping and publishing process has to be completed at the district level before campus users will see updated accommodation data. The Last Ran message box will tell you which map(s) has the error so you can communicate with your DTC.
Clicking the Auto Pilot Alert title will show you all students with pending accommodations as well as Last Ran information for all vendor files associated with Auto Pilot for your district.
Clicking on View beside a student's name will take you to the auto pilot review page where you can approve accommodations for the student. After reviewing/approving accommodations for that student, clicking on next will take you directly to the next student in the alert.
The Removed from AP alert will tell campuses which students who were previously in the incoming vendor file, are no longer in the file. Campuses will select the Removed from AP alert and then confirm if these student(s) accommodations should be removed. TestHound will remove the accommodations from the students. Student accommodations should be verified in the vendor program to assure the accommodations should, in fact, be removed before confirming students in this alert. After confirming, the student(s) will have accommodations removed in TestHound. If this is done in error, the accommodations would have to be entered back in manually or when the file runs again containing their information. There is also a download button to export the list of students to provide a record of the students who were in the alert. Once students are confirmed, they will disappear from the list.
