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.


The NDE and several SIS vendor support teams will host a virtual workday for final Assessment Rostering in ADVISER on December 19th, 2022 from 9am-11am CST. There will be a short presentation from the NDE Assessment team, with the bulk of the workday spent reviewing rosters in ADVISER and helping to troubleshoot/correct any issues.

The NDE Assessment and ADVISER team 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 9 roster due date – specifically ADVISER related data pertaining to ACT and Alternative Assessments. NSCAS Growth rosters should be ready prior to that time.

Registration is not necessary at this time. Please join us at the zoom link here. The presentation can be found below in Article Attachments. A recording of the presentation can be found here.


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-12pm CST. Here is the zoom link.
