The 2014 NCES STATS-DC Data Conference was designed for education researchers, policymakers, and data system managers from all levels of government to share innovations in the design and implementation of education data collections and information systems and to provide insight and comment on technical and policy issues related to the collection, maintenance, and use of education data.
This two-and-a-half-day conference offered opportunities for 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 Data Conference offered more than 100 presentations and demonstrations conducted by practitioners from K–12 information systems. The Data Conference included training and business meetings for state Common Core of Data (CCD) and EDFacts data coordinators. There was also a range of informative sessions targeted toward interests in CCD, data collection, data linking beyond K-12, data management, data privacy, data quality, data standards, data use (both analytical and instructional), fiscal data, and changes in how the U.S. Department of Education collects and uses data.
