Limitations: Under Perkins III, states are allowed maximum flexibility in their data collection methodologies and procedures. This flexibility limits data comparability at the national level.

Improvements: The State Administration and Accountability Group (SAAG) will conduct national and regional training institutes to improve data collection efforts especially in the areas of special populations and minority students. The SAAG will conduct targeted individual state technical assistance to improve performance for special populations and minority students.
