Why Is Student-Level P-20 Data Sharing Important?: What New England Can Learn from the Data Quality Campaign
Smith, Nancy J.
New England Journal of Higher Education, v22 n5 p30-32 Spr 2008
As of the 2007 Data Quality Campaign annual survey, 22 states reported having the ability to share P-12 student-level data with higher education systems. With the ability to match student-level records between P-12 and postsecondary systems, policymakers and educators will be able to obtain data for strategic planning, cost-benefit analysis of district and school-level programs and evaluation of course and program effectiveness, and evaluate the effectiveness of its teacher preparation programs. This article presents the observed challenges of forming a P-20 data system and the actions required to ensure sustained P-20 student-level data sharing.
