The article presents updates in the U.S. Department of Education. The Department of Education has hosted an invitational technical assistance training meeting for State adult correctional education programs titled "Making Data Work for You." The Department's contractors and representatives of partner States have introduced resources intended to improve and standardize reporting in correctional education programs both within and across States. The program developed data quality standards, encouraged States to use common assessment tools, and improved the National Reporting System to collect comparable grantee performance data.
