Data Collection Tools and Resources for Consortium Members
- Consortium: Capital Adult Education Regional Consortium
- Type of Practice: Data & Accountability
Foster regional and local system integration efforts pertaining to assessment and intake of adult students.
Support data sharing efforts to bolster performance accountability and program evaluation.
- Organizations that were involved:
The Capital Adult Education Regional Consortium (CAERC) found inconsistent and inaccurate data-collection taking place across the consortium and needed to find a way to address the issue.
To address the issue, the CAERC developed data-collection tools and resources for consortium-wide use.
The tool/resources include:
- A registration form
- Definition cards to help students complete the registration form accurately
- A simplified voluntary authorization-to-share Social Security number form.
Each resource was professionally translated into 17 languages to help improve the accuracy of our data-collection efforts with our region’s large population of English Language Learners. Translated documents are available in the following languages: Arabic, Cambodian/Khmer, Chinese, Dari, Farsi, Hindi, Hmong, Korean, Lao, Pashto, Punjabi, Russian, Spanish, Thai, Ukrainian, Urdu and Vietnamese.
As a result of this change, the consortium has seen complete and accurate data collected across the consortium.
The consortium now has more complete/accurate student demographic data as reported on the AEP data integrity report.
