History of the SEDC

  • NEDPI (2004-2007) launched SchoolMatters.com—the first free, public access website to education data (demographics, performance, fiscal, etc.) at the school, district, and state levels.

  • NEDPII (2007-2010) seeks to continue a national website under direction of the states. Rebranded the original SchoolMatters.com as SchoolDataDirect.org (SchoolMatters continues as website specifically for parents); provided for a data download tool for researchers; organized the SEDC to guide the development of SchoolDataDirect.org and explore other value-adds for state education agencies and ‘light researchers’.

  • SEDC formally launched in October 2007.

The Coordinated Data Ask

  • What do national researchers typically request, or would like to have, from SEAs?

  • About 2/3 of the Coordinated Data Ask is in SchoolDataDirect.org

  • Remaining data elements are looked for, but not commonly available (many college readiness indicators, some staff data)

Slide16 l.jpg

Downloading Data

  • Data Download Tool

    • Directory of downloadable data files

    • Organized by state, level (school, school district, or state) and by year

    • In large states, school files are further subdivided by alphabetic grouping, based on the school name.

    • Flat, pipe-delimited format

    • Some files contain too many records to be opened fully in spreadsheet applications, so it is recommended that you use statistical analysis software to work with these files.
