Best Practices in the Public Reporting and Visualization of IDEA Data
This webinar focused on best practices for public reporting of IDEA data and important questions for states to consider when planning visualizations of their data. These questions include: Who is your audience and what is your message? What design principles should you consider in visualizing your IDEA data? What are some communication principles to keep in mind when presenting data to various stakeholders? What resources will you need—technology, staff, funds—and what resources are available to help? Participants heard from state staff who demonstrated key features of their states’ IDEA public reporting portals and how their states developed them, as well as the successes and challenges the states experienced with the work.
