Data quality is critical for program improvement and has been the focus of much of the training done through the NRS support project. However, it is not the only determinant. Having state policies in place that encourage programs to make changes that have a positive impact on their data is equally important. In this webinar, state staff from Delaware, North Dakota, and Texas shared how specific policies and practices they have put into place have affected their data, resulting in increases in their states’ post-secondary and GED achievement rates, enrollment rates, and level completion rates, respectively. Participants learned what prompted these states to act, some challenges the states faced in implementing their policies, and what the resulting data have shown. Participants also heard tips on how to implement a similar policy in their state.
