And, while they have the option to refuse to answer, telling them upfront may indicate to them that you dont want them to answer. </p><p>Ask it as though its just another question which it is and they are more likely not to hesitate. Be nonchalant, casual about it. This will help you be objective.</p></li><li><p>Potential Problem:. </p><p>The completer may want to know more information before answering.</p></li><li><p>Solution:Why are you asking?It helps us to know how our students are doing.</p><p>Who gets this information?The data is reported to the district and the state, but your responses are confidential. Names are not included in the data that is reported. </p></li><li><p>Potential Problem:</p><p>Some completers may refuse to answer, however others may just be uncertain.</p></li><li><p>Solution:If a person refuses to answer or clearly does not want to, then immediately skip the question and move on. </p><p>However, if the person suggests that they are uncertain by saying something like Im not sure, then ask if they could give an estimate.</p></li><li><p>Adhere to Follow-up Time lines</p><p>Important so that data can be processed</p><p>Timely delivery of reports to district</p></li><li><p>2008 Follow-up Time linesWeek of February 4, 2008Follow-up packets mailed to CEPD Administrators for distribution to local districts.
