Building Capacity for High-Quality IDEA DataIDC provides technical assistance to build capacity within states for collecting, reporting, and analyzing high-quality IDEA data.
The IDEA Data Center focuses on data requirements under Sections 616 and 618 of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, including data focused on programs for infants, toddlers, and their families (Part C) and on programs serving children ages 3 through 21 (Part B). Building capacity for high-quality IDEA data will affect states, school districts, and local early intervention programs across the nation. Those entities will, in turn, apply the higher quality data they generate to improve outcomes for all children and youth with disabilities served under IDEA.

IDC presents 618 Data Pre-submission Edit Check Tools for helping states prepare their Part C and Part B data submissions. States can use the tools to identify potential edit check errors or errors in subtotals or totals prior to submitting the data to OSEP via EDFacts. The tools are republications of the DTS originally published by DAC. IDC is preparing Section 508 compliant versions of the tools and will post them soon.
