Welcome to the Data Quality Certification Program

The Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) has developed a Data Quality Certification (DQC) program with specialized tracks for data entry personnel, data coordinators, program staff, and administrators. These tracks include instruction on general data quality practices and techniques, as well as intensive role-based training with the KSDE web-based applications, including the Kansas Individual Data on Students (KIDS) system, and their support resources. 

DQC certification is not required it is a voluntary professional development opportunity for interested staff members.

KSDE will be updating all websites and our DQC site will be changing to a Data Quality Training site in the future. Look for more information about this on KIDS ListServ announcements!
