IDC and CIFR developed the SEA Edit Check and Data Display Tool - Part B MOE and CEIS to help states prepare their Part B MOE and CEIS data submission. States can use the tool to identify potential edit check errors or errors in subtotals or totals prior to submitting the data to OSEP. The tool allows states to input LEA-level data into the base data tab and generates edit check messages that the tool displays in the auto-calculations tab.
