Nine Essential Elements of Statewide Data-Collection Systems.
State education agencies are increasingly building the capacity to collect and manage sizable quantities of information about schools and districts and to match individual student records over time and across databases. An adequate statewide student data-collection system makes it easier for a state to meet legal reporting requirements such as those under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. An adequate statewide data collection system has nine key elements: (1) unique statewide student identifier; (2) student-level enrollment data; (3) student-level state test data; (4) information on untested students; (5) student-level course-completion data; (6) student-level Scholastic Assessment Test, ACT Assessment, and Advanced Placement test results; (7) student-level graduation and dropout data; (8) state data audit process; and (9) ability to match K-12 and higher education data.
