Definition: Data or information may be presented to a user in multiple formats or outputs for use. Often called “reports,” the term output is more expansive to include data files, oral presentations, web pages, books, notes, pictures, DVDs, and so many other ways that information can be shared today.

What This Means: Education agencies are using multiple media to communicate information to their various audiences today. Simply using the single term report has become too restrictive.

As used in DataSpecs, Outputs and Reports are the methods of presenting data using the contents of repositories. The reports or outputs created (or being designed) are documented as Outputs and Reports.”
