Abstract: 

Presented at the 2013 Improving Data, Improving Outcomes Conference. States compute two summary statements for their child outcomes data. The use of a confidence interval around these summary statements allows the state to rule out differences between the program and the state that are not statistically significant. In this session, a tool for computing these confidence intervals was presented. Three states described their use of confidence intervals for comparing state and local summary statement data.
