Ensuring accurate data collection, data reporting, and data use for program evaluation purposes are important and essential components of Title I, Part D (Part D), programs. Data on academic and vocational outcomes provide information that the U.S. Department of Education (ED) and States need to assess student progress, demonstrate whether programs are meeting requirements, and identify needs so resources can be targeted appropriately.
This section provides information for Part D coordinators, subgrantees, and data administrators related to the Part D data collection, including the Federal data collection and reporting cycle; performance reports and publications reflecting the results of previous data collections; data quality and program evaluation tools and resources to assist with data use; and information related to developing comprehensive data systems and implementing pre- and posttesting within programs.
Title I, Part D (Part D), requires State education agencies (SEAs) to annually submit information regarding the educational progress of students served with Part D funds (see Subpart 3, Section 1431(a)). The purpose of the Federal collection is to provide the U.S. Department of Education (ED) with data that demonstrate the effectiveness of Title I, Part D, educational programs relative to the opportunities students have and the progress they are making in local district schools. SEAs report these data annually through two reporting tools: Consolidated State Performance Report (CSPR) and EDFacts. The documents and links on the CSPR and EDFacts tabs are intended to assist in understanding the Federal data collection requirements and the relationship between the CSPR and EDFacts collection tools.
Consolidated State Performance Report
The CSPR is a data collection tool administered online by ED’s Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE). All States receiving Part D funding must respond to the reporting requirements in the CSPR. Portions of the data requested in the CSPR are collected (or populated) through EDFacts. For an overview of the CSPR process and timeline, visit NDTAC's Federal Data Reporting and the CSPR Web page. For more details on the CSPR, refer to NDTAC's "Instructional Guide to Reporting Title I, Part D, Data in the CSPR," below.
Link to the official CSPR web page and current Part II reporting forms on the ED Website. The Title I, Part D, section (Section 2.4) can be found on page 36 of the Part II forms for SY 2011-12. The deadline for submitting completed CSPR data for SY 2011-12 to ED is February 15, 2013.
