The Nebraska Department of Education Service Desk is pleased to offer various workdays and office hours for our Public, Nonpublic, Special Purpose, ESU and Rule 18 Facility systems, in order to support our many data collections.
NDE, ESU and SIS Vendor Support have worked together to come up with a workday schedule we hope all Public Districts and Special Purpose Schools can participate in. We encourage any Data Stewards and SPED staff who have questions related to their ADVISER data attend as many workdays as needed. NDE, SRS and SIS Vendor Support will be available to assist with any questions and troubleshooting.
All workdays will be virtual from 9am-3pm CST. Here is the zoom link. Registration is not required.

The NDE Assessment and Service Desk teams will host a virtual workday for final Assessment Rostering in ADVISER on December 14th, 2023 from 9am-11am CST. The bulk of the workday will be spent reviewing roster data in ADVISER Validation and helping to troubleshoot/correct any issues.
The NDE Assessment and ADVISER teams will be available for support, along with several SIS Vendors. Assessment platform vendors (such as NSCAS Growth, INSIGHT or PANext) will not be in attendance.
The focus of the workday will be toward the January 8 roster due date – specifically ADVISER related data pertaining to ACT and Alternative Assessments. NSCAS Growth rosters should be ready prior to that time.
This training is designed for new Public District, Nonpublic Systems and Special Purpose School Data Stewards. It may also be beneficial for 2nd year Data Stewards and new District Administrators (Superintendents).
Many topics will be reviewed including: the NDE Portal, ADVISER Validation, ADVISER Person ID and much more!
