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.
Format: Quick ReferenceIDEA Part B Federal Reporting Years Reference
This reference illustrates the differences among school year (SY), federal fiscal year (FFY), and calendar year (CY)—that is, types of years—as they relate to data that states collect and report to meet their Part B IDEA federal reporting requirements. States can use this handy reference for preparing and submitting their State Performance Plans/Annual Performance Reports (SPPs/APRs). To report on the 17 different SPP/APR indicators, states use data reflecting different types of years, with unique dates associated with the years.
Format: Applications and SpreadsheetsPart 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.
Format: ToolkitsSEA Data Processes Toolkit
Using the SEA IDEA Data Processes Toolkit to document data processes for all 616 and 618 data collections will establish a well-managed process for data collection, validation, and submission. In collaboration with IDC State Liaisons, states can use the toolkit to create and maintain a culture of high-quality data and establish and support consistent practices that produce valid and reliable data, while building the capacity of state staff.
Format: Applications and SpreadsheetsLEA EDFacts Edit Check and Data Display Tools
The LEA EDFacts Edit Check and Data Display Tools allow states to identify potential business rule errors or errors in category sets, subtotals, or totals prior to submitting the data to OSEP via the EDFacts Submission System. The tool also provides states with user-friendly data summaries.
Format: Guides and BriefsState Determinations of Local Education Agency (LEA) Performance
This resource provides a summary of findings from 28 states’ publicly available LEA determinations processes. States can use this resource to learn more about the data elements, calculation methodologies, and determination category criteria these 28 states used for making LEA determinations. This information can be particularly valuable for those states considering revisions and updates to their own LEA determinations processes.
