2011 OSEP Leadership Mega Conference Collaboration to Achieve Success from Cradle to Career 2.0 Until the Smartphone App is Ready… Use the Indicator Analysis Reports Lynne Kahn, NECTAC SEA Representative (invited), Part B Wendy Whipple, Nevada, Part C Dick Zeller, CADRE Presentation #: 302 NR-S
What SPP/APR Improvement Is About… Work done by adults…. … to benefit children & families.
What we’ll cover: What’s in the Indicator Analysis Reports? How can states use the reports? What TA resources are available to you? You tell us- How can the Indicator Analysis Reports be even more useful?
Indicator Report Features National picture of data on each indicator Analyses of patterns in the data related to state characteristics National trends over time in indicator data Highlights of successful improvement strategies related to each indicator
Examples of Data Analyses
Where to find the Indicator Analysis Reports Hard copy distributed here! Available to download by Indicator on the NEW & Improved SPP/APR Calendar, now on line at The Right IDEA
Nevada’s Use of APR Analysis Reports Nevada’s Interagency Coordinating Council will often ask questions on how Nevada compares with other States. What have states used as their definition of “Timely” under Indicator 1? Nevada and 29 other states are utilizing 30 days per Analysis Report.
Nevada Continued Are other states struggling with providing timely delivery of services? 32 states are within the 90 th percentile. 8 states are below the 80 th percentile. Can we compare results from Nevada with states that are similar to Nevada both geographically and in population size? Individual queries can be requested on any APR indicator through the TA network.
Nevada Continued Nevada’s largest provider of early intervention services raised questions related to how Indicators may impact each other, for instance: Does performance at a high percentage in natural environments impact Indicator 1, Timely Delivery of Services?
Nevada Continued 26 states were providing services within natural environments within the 90 th percentile, compared to 32 states providing timely services within the 90 th percentile. Natural Environments does not appear to adversely impact a state’s ability to provide timely services.
Nevada Continued Does Nevada have a higher percentage of services being provided in natural environments than other states? Nevada is within the same percentage ranking as 26 other states. What is the overall percentage of children being served in natural environments nationwide? 31 states including Nevada are at 95% or above.
Nevada Final Without access to the Indicator Analysis Reports, Part C in Nevada would not have had answers to these questions at hand, and would have had to do a lot of researching to try and find the answers. The analysis can also be helpful to identify states that are doing well in an indicator for accessing successful strategies.
