The Data Activities Inventory is an inventory that programs and individuals can use to determine their comfort levels with each of the four data activities: prepare, collect, aggregate and analyze, and use and share.
Data Resources includes two lists of resources related to creating a culture for using data. The first includes Head Start Resources that are available on the Early Childhood Learning & Knowledge Center (ECLKC) website; the secondincludes resources that can be found on other websites. Both include descriptions and sources.
The graphic is a visual representation of a conceptual model of the planning in Head Start and Early Head Start. It includes all of the elements of the planning system – including self-assessment, community assessment, setting goals, developing a plan and budget, implementing the plan, evaluating through ongoing monitoring, and making course corrections into an annual cycle.
