Format: Quick ReferenceChecklist to Identify and Address SSIP Data Quality Issues
In State Performance Report/Annual Performance Plan (SPP/APR) reports, states are required to identify data quality issues that may have arisen during their Indicator 17 State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP) work. Using this checklist can help state staff who are responsible for the SSIP apply the principles of high-quality data to identify any data quality issues that the state should report. The checklist includes questions that states can ask themselves to recognize data quality issues that may exist. It provides potential consequences of the issues and offers suggested actions that states can take to address the issues.

Format: PresentationsIntegrating Qualitative Data Analysis Into Your Continuous Improvement Efforts
When used together, qualitative and quantitative data provide strong evidence for change and can better inform continuous improvement efforts. This workshop focused on ways to conduct meaningful qualitative analysis and use it effectively with quantitative analysis. Participants had the opportunity to learn more about specific approaches to qualitative analysis and how to apply those approaches to an example dataset. Presenters then asked participants to think critically about how to use both qualitative and quantitative analysis to interpret and effectively present data.
