The Changing Landscape of Indicator 3: Assessment and Engaging Stakeholders in Baseline and Target Setting
During this webinar, we reviewed the changes to Indicator 3 of the Part B SPP/APR and took a deep dive into how some states are preparing and working with stakeholders to set baselines and targets for the indicator. State panelists addressed data quality concerns due to COVID-19 closures and reopenings, as well as the 2021 testing flexibilities and how they affect setting baselines and targets. Speakers presented strategies for identifying diverse stakeholders and presenting complex data to help stakeholders understand the data. In addition, state panelists revealed their plans for working with stakeholders, including the data they plan to share with stakeholders, how they plan to present these data, what input they will ask for, and how they plan to document ongoing stakeholder input.
Setting Baselines and Targets in a World of Questionable Data Quality
All states are developing a new SPP/APR. They may consider new baselines, as appropriate, and must set targets for results indicators. This baseline and target setting will be complicated because states collected and reported the most recent SPP/APR data available during the COVID-19 school closures, which affected the completeness, accuracy, and quality of the data. With these issues in mind, IDC presenters shared considerations for determining baselines and strategies states may use to set targets for SPP/APR indicators. Two states took a dive into several SPP/APR indicators to share their plans for setting baselines and targets and engaging their stakeholders in the process.
