Data Quality

Definition: Quality of data is defined by the match between the data and their acceptability for their intended purpose.

What This Means: To achieve data quality, an education agency must have metadata standards, quality assurance processes, and a high level of use of the data to ensure that everyone who touches the data has a stake in their quality. ESP’s Hierarchy of Data Quality is part of the U.S. Department of Education’s National Education Technology Plan.
