SEA 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. The toolkit contains an overview of the toolkit, Data Collections Protocols, SPP/APR Indicator Protocols, Annual Determinations for SEAs Protocol, a Data Collection Calendar, and additional resources that provide a structure for documenting data processes. The Data Collection Protocols are in Word, and states can tailor them to meet their states' specific documentation needs.
