IT Kit: Thinking Through Improvement

Assists targeted state and local agencies in the North Central Region with data utilization and improvement efforts related to IDEA 2004. The passage of IDEA 2004 increased the need for state and local agencies to enhance their knowledge of and skills in using data for improvement, because this law brings data-related accountability to the local level. IT Kit is a tool developed by the North Central Regional Resource Center that combines training and a manual to enhance understanding of how improvement is achieved and how educational accountability is demonstrated. Information and activities highlight how to: use data to support the improvement planning process, prioritize areas for improvement, set targets and benchmarks, select effective improvement activities, evaluate process and impact, and report progress.

IT Kit, which has been in its second edition since January 2009, is part of NCRRC's training and is not sold separately.
