A+ INQUIRY

BE AN EFFECTIVE DATA USER
A+ Inquiry "strives to equip professionals with a continuous awareness of, and competence in, all stages that comprise a thorough inquiry process, positioning them with an ongoing capacity to ensure that, for any given inquiry, the right context is absorbed, the right questions are asked, the right data are accumulated, accessed, and analyzed, the right answers are derived, the right announcements are communicated, and the right application is made" (Anderson, Brockel, & Kana, 2014, p. 6).
