Data Governance Rubric - Public Schools
The purpose of this rubric is to (1) assess the existence and completeness of key components of a data governance manual, and (2) identify areas and recommendations for further development. The rubric may be used as a self-assessment, or by a third party.
The rubric contains multiple sections as and allows additional recommendations:1) Purpose, 2) Structure, and 3) Policy and Practice.
Each section contains components that are important to include within a comprehensive data governance manual. Reviewers indicate whether the component is Fulfilled or has Action(s) Recommended. Fulfilled indicates the component is adequately represented in the manual though enhancements may be suggested in the comments; Action(s) Recommended indicates the need for additional information as explained in the comments. The data governance manual is one critical output of a data governance program, but there are many other elements that must be in place for data governance to be successful, and that may not be reflected in the data governance manual alone.
