Format: RecordingsPart C State Performance Plan/Annual Performance Report 2016 Indicator Analyses
The Part C State Performance Plan/Annual Performance Report 2016 Indicator Analyses presents a national picture of the implementation of IDEA based on a review of information 56 states and jurisdictions reported in their FFY 2014 APRs and amended SPPs that they subsubmitted to OSEP in spring of 2016.
Format: PresentationsUsing Implementation Science in Phases II and III
Use of implementation science is critical in planning and implementing systemic improvement. This information explores how to operationalize the components of implementation science and how to select, implement, and scale-up chosen evidence-based practices. Helpful handouts are included.
Format: PresentationsIt Starts at Preschool: Aligning 619 Activities With the B SIMR
The presentation provides strategies that are important to providing high-quality preschool programs. Specifically, the information focuses on how high-quality preschool programs support improvement in the Part B SIMR.

Format: PresentationsImplications of Growth Modeling for SSIP: Measuring Growth Within the SSIP Process
Growth models provide states with an option for determining how to measure progress toward a student level SIMR outcome. Participants discussed and provided input into development of an IDC white paper that focuses on different growth model approaches, the data requirements, and analytic approach in order to use a growth model approach to measure growth toward a SIMR student outcome. Currently, the white papers is in draft form and undergoing revisions based on input from the field. The published paper will be posted to the IDC Resource Library and affiliated as a related resource to the handouts already posted for this session.
Format: PresentationsConsiderations for Making Changes to SIMR Baselines and Targets
The presentation examines the reasons why states would change baselines or targets for their SSIPs. Topics addressed include changes in assessments, data collection methods, and data quality. Participants discussed and provided input into an IDC white paper on the topic. Currently, the white paper is in draft form and undergoing revisions based on input from the field. The published paper will be posted to the IDC Resource Library and affiliated as a related resource to the handout already posted for this session.
