Enrollment, Testing and Discipline Data for Students with Disabilities

Most data related to students with disabilities collected by the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) is reported publicly through Ohio School Report Card's Advanced Reports. The Advanced Reports provide web access to the ODE data warehouse, offering the public opportunities to explore the available data.

When one selects a particular report, the data that is displayed is the most frequently requested combination of data elements. However, the user can often drill to much more detail. For example, a reader might select a “test results” report, and interactively build a report that displays test results for students with IEPs (called “disability flag” in the data warehouse and those without). After examining this report, the reader might wish to know test results for students who were alternately assessed and can drill to the “required test type.”

Federally reported data:
The federal Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) collects much data from each state. Each state must share the most recent final data with the public. OSEP has a website to publicly report the IDEA Section 618 data as well as provide documentation associated with the data. This site hosts:
  • IDEA Section 618 data files (historical and newly released data); 
  • Data Documentation Files which will provide information about the data elements and format of the data files;
  • Data notes associated with the IDEA Section 618 data files; and
  • Links to other sites that provide data and information on children with disabilities.
A user-friendly version of the most recent data summarized by the federal office is found at here. To find Ohio data, click on the small triangle in the first row of Column B (State Name), and select “Ohio.” Data based on student groups of fewer than ten students is reported as “<10” to protect student privacy.
