New Tools to Showcase M&I Success

Every year from January to April, the AIRA Standards and Analytics team conducts the annual Validation measurement and testing as part of the Measurement and Improvement (M&I) initiative. This initiative, which was launched in 2015, serves as a testing and recognition program aimed at showcasing the progress of the IIS community toward national standards alignment. IIS that successfully attain Validation in at least one of the five measurement areas are honored at the AIRA National Meeting and presented with a Validation certificate. Notably, 100% of IIS jurisdictions engage in M&I to varying extents, with 55 IIS achieving Validation in the first quarter of 2023.


This year, in collaboration with M&I’s advisory body, MACAW (Measurement for Assessment and Certification Workgroup), AIRA has devised e-badges to complement existing M&I recognition and promotional efforts. IIS programs are encouraged to integrate these new e-badges into any suitable digital space permitted by their respective organization or agency. This includes, but is not limited to, email signatures, program web pages, IIS home pages, and presentation slides. Validated IIS can expect to see these new badges in their inbox later this month once first-quarter 2024 results are available. IIS can check out the one-page overview on AIRA’s repository here.


Data Viz Tip of the Month 

Microsoft Fabric is an integrated environment that brings together new and existing components from Power BI, Azure Synapse, and Azure Data Factory. Fabric integrates powerful data tools and services, such as Synapse, into the familiar user interface of Power BI. Check out Guy in a Cube’s video to see how to connect to Fabric items like a lakehouse or warehouse.
