ADEConnect Update September 4, 2015
Dear Entity Administrator,
This is your biweekly update on all things ADEConnect. As a reminder, we will now send just 2 emails each month
informing you of the changes being made within ADEConnect. You will also always be able to find the indicated documents and past issues of the update on the ADEConnect web page
in the News and Notifications section.

Alternate Assessments Application and Roles
The Alternate Assessments application will be available in ADEConnect beginning September 9, 2015. The correct roles and permissions for this application are detailed in the document listed below:
ESS Funding and Maintenance of Effort Application and Roles
The ESS Funding and Maintenance of Effort (MOE) application is now available in ADEConnect. The correct roles and permissions for this application are detailed in the document listed below:
The SAIS ID Search
application in Common Logon is being deactivated. Beginning immediately, please use the AzEDS Identity
application in ADEConnect instead.
The most important difference between the two applications is this: where SAIS ID Search could only return an exact match, AzEDS Identity searches are able to return both close and perfect matches.
AzEDS Identity then allows you to differentiate potential matches using a "More Info" feature, which shows details such as 'responsible party', 'aliases', and 'school association'. The return of potential matches also catches student records with misspellings and helps identify duplicate entries.
Guides on using the AzEDS Identity application and the necessary roles are available at the links below. Please note that the AzEDS Identity roles have been updated.
