Title: Best Practices for Data Collectors and Data Providers
Description: This report addresses the question: "What can be done to better coordinate data definitions and surveys on a national basis to achieve greater comparability and relieve institutional data burden?" The Better Coordination of Data Working Group, in consultation with representatives from various organizations that survey institutions of higher education, drafted a document identifying "best practices" for data collectors. The consensus was that further work, including the development of a "best practices for data providers," could be of substantial interest and usefulness.
