Implementing The Common Education Data Standards: Discussion Models for a data warehouse

Presentation Summary

John Blegen, State Higher Education Executive Officers

The Common Education Data Standards (CEDS) Initiative is an exciting opportunity for stakeholders from across the education spectrum to work together toward more clear and consistent data. The CEDS Initiative is a joint effort of the National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES) and a consortium of non-governmental education stakeholders. The CEDS Consortium is enthusiastically supporting these efforts by participating in their development and supporting their adoption. The CEDS Standards are unique because they are preschool through workforce in scope, are entirely voluntary, and are supported by a broad array of stakeholders including the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) the State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO), and the Postsecondary Electronics Standards Council (PESC). Version 2.0 of the standards was recently released in January, 2012. This is the first version with significant postsecondary content. Version 3.0 which will expand that content is currently in development. This presentation/discussion will bring you up-to-date on CEDS activities, present some exciting new data dictionary analysis tools that are available at no cost, and identify issues and challenges for discussion. Discussion will include how the CEDS impacts those building new data warehouses and special considerations for those with existing warehouses.
