The National Center for Education Statistics will be conducting a free 1-day training seminar on its early childhood studies at the 2011 biennial meeting of the Society for Research in Child Development on March 30, 2011, in Montreal, Canada. The seminar provides information on three NCES large-scale data collections:
The seminar will present overviews of the study designs and technical issues associated with using and analyzing the data, highlights about the data collected from 1991 through 2007 pertaining to children from birth through 8th grade, information on how the surveys complement each other, and computer demonstrations of software that assist users in preparing data for analyses.
