What information does NCES have on the coronavirus pandemic?


The emergence of the coronavirus pandemic shifted not only how students received educational services around the world but also how NCES carried out its mission, which is to collect, analyze, and report statistics on the condition of education in the United States. To respond to the call for information about how students learned during widespread school disruptions, NCES modified existing and created new data collection avenues to receive and report vital information in unprecedented ways. Below are summaries of some of the resources available.
