About Us

The Arkansas IDEA Data and Research Office is a partnership of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and Arkansas Department of Education.

IDEA Data and Research is housed in the College of Education's Center for Applied Studies in Education. This program has been established to meet the growing data and reporting requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA) and to undertake IDEA related research.

Mission Statement

The Mission of the Arkansas IDEA Data and Research Office is to provide quality data management, analysis, technical assistance, and research for the enhancement of the Arkansas Department of Education's general supervision of local education agencies' special education programs by ensuring accurate, valid, and timely data to meet all state and federal reporting.

We strive to promote IDEA research among faculty and students of UALR for a greater understanding of policy, procedures, and practices across the state.
