    Navigating Uncharted Waters: Engaging Stakeholders in Part B Indicator 3 Baseline and Target Setting

    This customizable resource includes a PowerPoint template and presentation notes that provide states with an overview of the Part B SPP/APR reporting changes to Indicator 3, which addresses participation and performance of children with individualize education programs (IEPs) on statewide assessments. The resource reviews the new requirements related to stakeholders, particularly parents, in the SPP/APR and implications for Indicator 3 and shares strategies for engaging stakeholders in the optional baseline and required target setting processes. States are able to customize the information in the PowerPoint to reflect their own contexts and to meet the needs of different audiences.

    The Assessment Data Journey: Are We There Yet?

    Data for Part B Indicator 3 follow a long and complicated process that begins when a student is registered as a test taker in a state assessment system and ends with public reporting via the SPP/APR. Multiple factors are involved in this process, and regular and ongoing communication and collaboration among the various people involved can make this process easier. This suite of four resources can help states with the work. The interactive infographic provides general information about the process for a typical state.

    The Data Processes Are Documented…Now What?

    Completing data documentation using IDC’s Part B IDEA Data Processes Toolkit provides many benefits to state agencies. After developing one or more of the protocols, state staff have seen firsthand the benefits of improved understanding of the data and communication about the data processes. This session provided a rationale for ongoing use of the data process protocols and how their use can help build capacity to create a culture of high-quality data at both the SEA and LEA levels.

    Top 10 Reasons to Document Your IDEA Data Processes

    This session highlighted several benefits of documenting your state’s IDEA data processes. Developing a “playbook” (that describes the who, what, when, where, and how of your state’s process for collecting, validating, submitting, and reporting 616 and 618 data collections) memorializes those processes for your state and therefore helps build resiliency in your agency.
