STATS-DC 2007 NCES Data Conference



The 2007 NCES Summer Data Conference contributed professional networking, updates on federal and national activities affecting data collection and reporting, and information about the best new approaches in collecting, reporting, and using education statistics. The Conference provided extensive information about changes in how the U.S. Department of Education collects and uses data, and about developments in electronic data standards for schools, school districts, and states. There were half-day training sessions for Common Core of Data Fiscal and Nonfiscal Data Coordinators, up to the minute presentations on NCES's survey and assessment programs, and overviews of developing statewide longitudinal data systems.

This conference was intended to provide an opportunity for state and local educators, members of associations and government agencies, and others to share information about developments and issues in the collection, reporting, and use of education data. The information and opinions expressed in this conference do not necessarily represent the policy or views of the U.S. Department of Education or the National Center for Education Statistics.
