The Massachusetts Data Quality Program is designed to help both data collectors and data users understand and address the issues that may affect the production of high-quality data. It provides lesson guides, instructional handouts, and material tailored to the specific needs of the early childhood education centers, child care resource and referral (CCR&R) agencies, family child care systems, and K-12 schools and districts, while being able to support all educational segments. These materials will help these organizations develop a culture for improving the quality of their data and provide opportunities for participants in training sessions to collaboratively practice some of the skills required for such an effort.
These short videos are a supplement to the Data Quality Program and will help you understand why a culture of data quality is so important.
