- The DaSy Framework for IDEA Data Systems
The DaSy Center worked closely with seven partner states to develop our Data System Framework that identifies the key components and quality indicators of an effective Part C and Section 619 data system. The DaSy framework provides a guiding structure for our TA and is a resource for states to consider and assess key aspects of their data system and plan for coordination across systems.
- Planning, Conducting, and Documenting Data Analysis for Program Improvement
DaSy’s new guide, Planning, Conducting, and Documenting Data Analysis for Program Improvement, was developed to help technical assistance (TA) providers and state staff define and limit the scope of data analysis for program improvement efforts, including the State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP). The tool was designed to help states in developing a plan for data analysis, documenting alternative hypotheses and additional analyses as they are generated, summarizing findings, and documenting results. Find the document on our DaSy Products Page.
