What is Duplicate Student Checking?

Duplicate student checking is a feature within the Ecollect Enrollment administrative dashboard that allows users to check submitted students against other submissions and existing PowerSchool data for returning students, duplicate entries, or submissions that otherwise need to be merged with an existing record.


Minimum Ecollect Version

Duplicate Student Checking Requires Ecollect v5.6/4.11.  


Student File

The district must provide a seed file for potential near matches from their SIS database.  The file sent to PowerSchool contains all students that should be checked against as potential duplicate students. It is recommended that active and transferred out students from all schools in the district who are non-graduates are included in this file
