The Accountability & Court Performance course will provide court managers with tools they can use to analyze court performance, implement improvements, and achieve performance goals. The course teaches court leaders and managers how to collect, understand, and use data to guide decision-making.  Participants will also improve their skills in communicating effectively with court leaders about how their court’s data can be used to improve court performance.

The course makes the link between practical tools for measuring court performance, such as CourTools, and other resources that explain why it is important to measure performance.  Those other resources are the purposes and responsibilities of courts, the principles of caseflow management, and the High Performance Court Framework, including court culture, the HPC Quality Cycle, and the principles of efficiency, effectiveness, productivity, and procedural fairness.

Learning Objectives: 

As a result of completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify tools that can be used to measure and manage performance, including CourTools
  • Collect, evaluate, and analyze court data
  • Use measures to assess performance as related to performance targets, such as time standards
  • Use performance measurement to guide management, planning, and leadership decisions
  • Write an action plan for court improvement that incorporates the purposes and responsibilities of courts, performance measurement, the principles of caseflow management, and elements of the High Performance Court Framework
