The Latest Updates from IDC
“A lack of clarity could put the brakes on any journey to success.” —Steve Maraboli
Keep in mind,
- The same term can mean different things to different people
- Establishing mutual understanding of data elements is critical
- Data element definitions ensure clear user understanding of
- What is being collected
- What is not being collected
- Whether a given data element is appropriate for a specific use
- Conclusions drawn from analysis of clearly defined data are more valid and reliable
The 2019 OSEP Symposia Series focused on strategies to attract, prepare, and retain effective personnel —general and special education teachers, early childhood personnel, and related services providers—who have the knowledge and skills needed to provide effective instruction, interventions, supports, and services to children with disabilities.
