The goal of the workshop is to focus states on data quality issues and provide approaches and tools for improving data quality and program performance. States will review current data quality issues and suggest solutions, including methods for reviewing data and trends, improving procedures and data systems, and data auditing. The training includes tools for evaluation local data collection methods, including a problem solving framework for states to work collaboratively with local programs to improve performance.
1. NRS Linking Data Quality with Action Guide
In revisiting data quality, this guide offers new approaches and tools to identify and prevent data quality problems. It introduces a local quality checklist, modeled after OCTAE's state checklist, which states can use to understand and evaluate local data collection practices. This guide also brings together previously developed material on improving data quality into a single resource, a data quality toolkit that permits easy access to this content, to support ongoing state and local training around data quality practices.
