Methods for Assessing Racial/Ethnic Disproportionality in Special Education: A Technical Assistance Guide (Revised)
This technical assistance guide can be used by SEA staff members who analyze, interpret, and/or make decisions based on disproportionality data and analyses. This guide describes some of the more common methods for calculating disproportionality, summarizes the question each method answers, provides step-by-step examples of how disproportionality is calculated, and offers brief discussions on how to interpret the method and some considerations. It is intended to help SEA staff members determine which of their LEAs have significant disproportionality, data that are required as part of the EMAPS IDEA Part B MOE Reduction and CEIS data collection.
