Source Format Descriptions

Slate offers a number of pre-made Source Formats which are available in the Source Format Library in an instance. Many are already pre-mapped and will require little to no customization.  Source formats that import test score data will also require tests.  Associated tests are available to be added from the Slate Template Library.  

If multiple versions of a Source Format exist in the Source Format Library, this article contains the most recent version. The Source Format with the most recent "remap as of date" is the current version.
