  15. 15. TIPS FOR REVIEWING DOCUMENTS • Organize documents around the 3 domains • At a minimum, work in pairs so one person asks questions and adds findings to Audit Profile while the other person searches and reports findings. • Don’t read into the documents; only record what you find in writing. • If information cannot be found ,simply state “no evidence at this time” and note this area for further clarification or questions in the interviews.* Iowa Support System for Schools and Districts in Need of Assistance ©2009
