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. 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.
Root Cause Analysis: Using Data to Improve Students' Outcomes
This webinar helped states and local education agencies (LEAs) learn how to use root cause analysis to analyze their 616 and 618 data and use the results to improve student outcomes. States and LEAs should conduct a root cause analysis when these data show that some groups of students are succeeding at lower rates than other groups are. Presenters discussed how to perform a successful root cause analysis in order to identify why performance or achievement gaps are happening and prevent them from reoccurring. Staff from the South Carolina Department of Education presented on the state’s use of the IDC Success Gaps Toolkit for root cause analysis with LEAs and the solutions the LEAs implemented as a result of their analyses.
