Title: Accessing and Exploring NCES Survey and Administrative Data Through Self-Guided Online Training Modules
Author(s): Andrew A White*
Companies: National Center for Education Statistics
Keywords: education data; survey data; online dataset training; data access; complex survey design; online data tools

The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) recently added several new modules to its extensive system of online data training modules to introduce new and expert data users to NCES and to facilitate easy access and use of its data. The system was also updated to be compatible with Android and IOS tablets. In addition, these modules can be a useful supplement to class materials when teaching practical complex survey design and analysis. This session provides guidance and advice on using these readily available online modules to get an overview of NCES’ data resources and learn about and navigate a myriad of NCES survey and administrative data sets. The session will cover new additions to the Distance Learning Dataset Training System (DLDT), which provides information about NCES data and the tools that users need in order to find published reports, explore and acquire data, create custom tables and analyses using NCES online tools, create custom data files, understand NCES’ complex survey designs and content, and conduct analyses in selected statistical software packages.
