The Program Data Analysis Plan for Colorado Special Education.
Darby, Charles A., Jr.; And Others
Presented is a Program Data Analysis Plan (PDAP) for the special education program in Colorado designed to serve as a model for other state education agencies in the development of their own analysis plans. The PDAP is a combination of three major components: a list of program management information requirements in the form of questions, the set of data elements necessary, and the specification of data analysis procedures to link the data elements to the information requirements. Management questions are said to be those questions asked by managers to gather information necessary for decision making and are listed in the first column of the main body of the PDAP. The third column lists exact location of data items on federal or state forms. The middle column links the questions and data by means of analysis statements in both verbal and mathematical form. State program monitoring is covered by a total of 164 questions in the areas of pupils, staff, cost, revenue, and program services. Provided are 17 questions related to program approval, 10 questions about program reimbursement, and eight questions in the area of program certification and endorsement. (DB)
