There are two items in This Week in IPEDS:
1) The data collection schedule for the 2008-09 collection year has been posted and is available at: http://surveys.nces.ed.gov/ipeds/index.aspx?IpedsInfoID=15
Please note that ALL Winter and Spring surveys will open on December 2, 2009. The Human Resources component must be completed and locked by the Winter deadline (January 20), but all Spring surveys will remain open, continuously, through April 14.
2) A document listing the changes affecting the 2009-10 survey components is available at: http://surveys.nces.ed.gov/ipeds/index.aspx?IpedsInfoID=17
As you are probably aware, there are changes to the IPEDS survey components resulting from passage of the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) in August of 2008. Please review the changes thoroughly to familiarize yourself with new data reporting requirements.
These documents, and additional information, are available through the Data Provider Center link (http://nces.ed.gov/ipeds/keyholder/) on the IPEDS homepage (http://nces.ed.gov/ipeds/).
