Improving Programs through Data-Driven Decisions: The Journey From Critical Questions to Data Visualization

Conference: National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC)
Date: June 2016
Presenter: Colleen Murphy

This session provides states with a roadmap for identifying, organizing, and visually displaying the data elements needed to answer state prioritized questions. This process is demonstrated using the Center for Early Childhood IDEA Data Systems (DaSy) Critical Questions and the Common Education Data System (CEDS) Connect Tool. Through collaborative efforts, DaSy and CEDS are developing templates to identify the data elements needed to address critical question, provide suggested analyses, and give examples of tables or graphs for displaying the data.
