Definition: Refers to the confirmation of certain characteristics of an object, person, or organization. This confirmation is often, but not always, provided by some form of external review, education, or assessment.

What This Means: In education we certify data, making sure they meet data quality rules and standards. Data reported to a state or derived for reporting by a state, e.g., AYP, must be certified by the reporting agency to be official.
