NCES Summer Forum and STATS-DC 2013 Data Conference, "Discovering Through Data"

Description: The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), in the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences (IES), will sponsor a 2.5-day meeting of the membership of the National Forum on Education Statistics immediately followed by the NCES STATS-DC 2013 Data Conference.

The Summer Data Conference is an opportunity for professional networking, updates on federal and national activities affecting data collection and reporting, and information about the best new approaches in collecting, reporting, and using education statistics. The conference will include training and business meetings for state Common Core of Data (CCD) and EDFacts data coordinators. There will also be a range of informative sessions targeted toward interests in CCD, data collection, data linking beyond K-12, data management, data privacy, data quality, data standards, data use (analytical), data use (instructional), fiscal data, and Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems (SLDS), as well as information about changes in how the U.S. Department of Education collects and uses data.

NOTE: If you wish to submit multiple proposals for the Summer Data Conference, you must register for each of your proposal submissions. Registering multiple times does not create multiple conference registrations or overwrite your previous proposal submissions.

There is no fee to attend the conference. NCES will provide a final agenda packet onsite. Check this website in the weeks prior to the STATS-DC 2013 Data Conference for a preliminary concurrent session schedule. Conference updates will be sent to the e-mail address provided.
