Analyzing Child Outcomes Data for Program Improvement: A Guidance Table
Barton, L., Taylor, C., Kasprzak, C., Hebbeler, K., Spiker, D., & Kahn, L.
This guidance table is a tool to help identify key issues, questions, and approaches for analyzing and interpreting data on outcomes for young children with disabilities. The tool outlines a series of steps related to defining analysis questions, clarifying expectations, analyzing data, testing inferences, and conducting data-based program improvement planning. It is best used in combination with other resources or as a point of reference for a group working with technical assistance providers or others who have experience analyzing and interpreting data. States will benefit from using the tool as a guide and individualizing specific content based on the data they have available and the specific issues that are priority interests or focal areas for program improvement.
