Goal 2 Technical Planning Subgroup on Core Data Elements. Report to the National Education Goals Panel.
National Education Goals Panel, Washington, DC.
In March 1993, the Goal 2 Technical Planning Subgroup on Core Data Elements was convened to focus on identifying information that could be obtained from local student data systems for monitoring local and state progress toward the National Education Goals. The Goal 2 Resource Panel had previously described the need for a national student data system to assess students' completion of school. This document describes a set of indicators of goal outcomes and proposes a set of data elements and definitions that could be used to computerize the indicators and serve the needs of education agencies. The process used in selecting the core data elements is described, and a list of the recommended indicators and accompanying data elements is presented. Table 1 lists the recommended data elements for each of the six goals and indicates whether the data element for the particular indicator presently exists in most elementary school and secondary school systems. Appendix A defines the recommended elements. Appendix B describes other potentially useful elements. Appendix C describes related activities at the national level to standardize core education data elements to facilitate their use. (SLD)
