Title: Computer-Based Training for NCES Complex Survey Micro-Data Sets: 2014 Update
Author(s): Andrew White*+
Companies: NCES/IES
Keywords: Data access ; online training ; computer-based ; complex survey analysis ; education data

The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) has completed six sets of computer-based training (CBT) modules covering nine of its detailed complex survey data sets. These are the products of the first year's work on a continuing project to create CBT training modules to facilitate and encourage interested researchers, students, policy analysts and practitioners to make hands-on use of NCES' public- and restricted-use detailed data sets. The presentation and demonstration will provide details on the development process and the surveys included as well as the structure, operation, content, and how to access the Distance Learning Data Set Training modules now available. Next steps and the next group of survey data sets having modules developed will also be included.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
