Abstract as submitted to DPF

The NOvA long-baseline neutrino experiment consists of two highly active, finely segmented, liquid scintillator detectors located 14 mrad off Fermilab's NuMI beam axis, with a Near Detector located at Fermilab, and a Far Detector located 810 km from the target at Ash River, MI. The experiment is sensitive to the muon neutrino disappearance parameters sin^2(theta_23) and delta m^2_(32) through the measurement of the modulation of the muon neutrino spectrum between the Near and Far Detectors. This talk will present a discussion of the systematic uncertainties associated with with the analysis of data collected to date, and the methods developed to predict the Far Detector spectrum as extrapolated from the observed Near Detector data.
