    Part B Indicator Data Display Wizard

    The IDC Part B Indicator Data Display Wizard helps state education agency (SEA) staff communicate complex data to stakeholders in a more user-friendly manner. This tool is designed to create data visualizations, in the form of charts, based on State Performance Plan/Annual Performance Report (SPP/APR) data the user enters. IDC has updated the tool to make it easier for users to create visualizations based on the charts’ purposes. Many of the visualizations are dynamic and automatically update based on the data the user enters into the tool. States can easily transfer the visualizations to other programs to meet their reporting needs based on the audience, message, and purpose of the desired report or presentation they are preparing.
