The Regional Capacity Assessment (RCA) was developed to assist regional education agencies in effectively supporting districts in their use of practices supported by evidence or effective innovations. The RCA Technical Manual provides background information on the instrument’s technical adequacy (i.e., validity and reliability).

The NIRN-SISEP Data System ( offers the ability to enter DCA data online and generate graphs and reports from the data. Users should complete the online Capacity Assessment Administration Course before administering a DCA. After successfully completing the course, an account request form will be provided to gain access to the NIRN-SISEP Data System.
