NCCREST Data Manager
Arizona State University
The National Center for Culturally Responsive Educational Systems (NCCRESt), a project funded by the U.S. Department of Education's Special Educations Programs, provides technical assistance and professional development to close the achievement gap between students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and their peers, and reduce inappropriate referrals to special education.
The research we performed
The application that we created for NCCREST is an interactive data website to help states and school districts examine their special education data. Interactive maps and tables present the distributions of students with disabilities across various disability categories by ethnic/racial category and teacher qualifications.
