  • The student is not designated to be excluded from IL SAT Pre-ID processing on the Exclude Students from State Reports page. (Registration > Entry & Reports > Student District Defined > Exclude Students from State Reports)
  • The download will also create a record for any Active-status 12th grade student who has a Test to be Taken value of 12 - 12th Grade SAT Testing on the ISBE - Pre-ID page (Registration > Entry & Reports > Student District Defined > ISBE Pre-Id).

Sort Group

Use these fields to select which eSchoolPlus table and field the testing vendor will use to sort your Pre-ID labels. Your selection shows as the Sort Group value in the SAT Pre-ID records.

You can sort using baseline eSchoolPlus student fields, any student program-tracked field, or a field from a student district-defined page. 

  • To select a district-defined field, choose Registration District-Defined from the first drop-down. You can then choose the appropriate page and field.
  • If Sort Group is blank, the download uses student last name.
Filter CriteriaYou may further refine processing based on baseline student fields, student program values, and student district-defined field values.
