Very early in the Banner implementation process, ETSU formed a Data Standards Committee to discuss data issues and establish guidance on the standardization of data within our new Banner system. The resulting ETSU Guidelines for Data Standards, Data Integrity and Security was drafted and received approval from the Banner Implementation Team. Please review the Banner Quick Reference guide for a condensed version of data entry rules.
Within Banner are hundreds of validation tables which list and define many of the values used within the system. Many of these values are standardized throughout the Tennessee Board of Regents system, but many are also assigned at the institutional level. To request an addition or change to a validation table, please complete the Validation Table Change Request form and forward to the Data Standards Committee Chair.
