Recently we have seen a rise in requests regarding information being lost or not saving properly. We are finding that in each of these cases the educator is logging onto SpEd Forms twice, either by having two windows or tabs open or not quitting properly. Logging on twice will cause problems. The program is not able to determine which session is active and you will lose information or mix up student data.
