Spreadsheet Application for Calculating Disproportionality Measures and User’s Guide: Spreadsheet Application for Calculating Disproportionality Measures (Revised)
The Excel spreadsheet application and user’s guide are tools to help states in their assessments of racial/ethnic disproportionality in LEAs. The spreadsheet application calculates several disproportionality measures. The user’s guide includes an overview of the spreadsheet application, discussions on data requirements, instructions for using the spreadsheet application, and information on getting help with questions and/or problems. This resource complements IDC’s previously published technical assistance document, Methods for Assessing Racial/Ethnic Disproportionality in Special Education: A Technical Assistance Guide (Revised), which provides additional information about the measures calculated by the spreadsheet. This spreadsheet is intended to help SEA staff determine which of their LEAs have significant disproportionality based on data that are required as part of the EMAPS IDEA Part B MOE Reduction and CEIS data collection.
