Title: Suggestions for Improvements to the Collection and Dissemination of Federal Financial Aid Data
Description: Several offices within the U.S. Department of Education collect and disseminate data about student financial aid. However, limitations of these data sources may make it difficult for consumers, policymakers, and researchers to gain a complete picture of the sources, types, and amounts of aid going to students at institutions of higher education and the relationship between aid and policy goals such as access and success. This report presents the findings and recommendations of the National Postsecondary Education Cooperative (NPEC) Working Group on Financial Aid Data, which sought to identify potential improvements to the collection and dissemination of federal financial aid data.
