The Data Conference is an opportunity for professional networking, updates on federal and national activites affecting data collection and reporting, and information about the best new approaches in collecting, reporting, and using education statistics.

There were half-day training sessions for CCD Fiscal and Nonfiscal Data Coordinators, presentations on NCES's survey and assessment programs, and overviews of developing statewide longitudinal data systems.
