    Part 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.

    Norms of Collaboration: Strategies for Working Together Effectively in Person and Virtually

    Following the norms of collaboration for working in groups can help groups accomplish their goals more effectively. Attending to the norms of collaboration takes on even greater importance as, more than ever, group members are working together in virtual environments. Norms of collaboration include behaviors such as pausing, paraphrasing, putting inquiry at the center, probing for specificity, putting ideas on the table, paying attention to self and others and presuming positive intentions. This IDC professional development experience helped attendees learn more about the norms of collaboration; how they can contribute to positive, productive group dynamics; and ways to apply the norms when working both in-person and virtually with others.
