Including Results Data in General Supervision Systems
This IDEA Data Center (IDC) and National Center for Systemic Improvement (NCSI) joint webinar focused on learning from states that are working to meaningfully include student results or outcomes data in their general supervision systems. Presenters shared “lessons learned” from state work, including both important considerations for states that are in the planning stages, as well as for those actively engaged in centering results data in their accountability and support systems. Participants also heard how states can integrate data use as part of their general supervision system.
