Civil Rights Data Collection
|Click here to visit the collection. No admission fee.|
The Civil Rights Data Collection contains data sets about enrollment demographics; pre-K; math and science courses; AP, SAT, and ACT results; discipline records; incidences of bullying; school expenditures, and teacher experience. You can run customized reports for (large) schools or districts---very handy for looking at the breakdown of enrollment or discipline by different demographics. Data is currently available through 2009, with promised updates in the near future. You also have the ability to make comparisons across schools and districts.
ED Data Express
|Touch here to check out ED Data Express. Ooo...that tickles!|
If you head over to ED Data Express, you can get a different sort of overview of the states. Data from federal programs, such as Title I, Title IIA, and Migrant/Bilingual (Title III), can be sorted and analyzed. There is also information on graduation rates, NAEP results, and other comparative factors.
National Center for Education Statistics
|You can check out the NCES by clicking here. C'mon. You know you want to.|
The grand-daddy of them all is the National Center for Education Statistics. There could be several posts about just this one site. There is so much there to explore. You can download questions used on the NAEP...sift through national research initiative...find out about various statewide initiatives to build sites for public educational data...and much much more.
I'll have another post in the near future to showcase a few more sites. Do you have a suggestion to add to the list? Let me know and I'll include it.
Happy New Year!
