The Postsecondary Data Collaborative (PostsecData) recently launched their website as a clearinghouse for information on postsecondary data initiatives and research.
The CSRDE was invited to be one of 16 voluntary data initiatives highlighted in the Mapping the Data Landscape section of the site. The Consortium’s fact sheet was used with those of other organizations to help create Data Snapshots of the states and territories represented, measures included, and methods used for data collection and distribution. In addition to the voluntary initiatives, national data collections are also featured, as well as reports and other resources. The report, Mapping the Postsecondary Domain: Problems and Possibilities, discusses the data measures vital to understanding student success and explores future possible solutions.
PostsecData is an initiative created by the Institute for Higher Education Policy (IHEP) and funded through a grant by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation that advocates for high-quality postsecondary data.
