“Check” Data

Self Check: Importance of "Check" data

You’re talking to a new Check & Connect mentor who is having great meetings with students and really getting to know them, but admits that he’s not doing much with “Check” data. What would you say to him to emphasize the importance of using “Check” data?

While each program may have their own reporting requirements, monitoring data is a key feature in mentors helping to improve outcomes with their students.
