Examining Representation: Over, Under, or Both?

This resource defines overrepresentation and three related terms: over-identification, under-identification, and underrepresentation. This resource also provides a brief scenario and initial guiding questions that show how the four terms are related. States can use their answers to these questions, in conjunction with IDC's Success Gaps Toolkit, to help identify and address the factors contributing to significant disproportionality.
