Building Possibilities Through Increased Data Capacity: Workshop Analyzing N or D Program Data

To inform practice and policy decisions, this workshop supports participants to identify, download, and analyze outcome data of neglected or delinquent (N or D) students who are enrolled in neglected, delinquent, or at-risk programs funded by Title I, Part D. Conference participants will be introduced to data focused on N or D students available on ED Data Express (EDE), the U.S. Department of Education’s web site that provides data on the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE) programs. By the end of the session, participants will know how to get the most out of dashboards on EDE and have the tools and knowledge to download, analyze, and develop visualizations using N or D data. The workshop is designed for participants of all levels of expertise with excel – from beginners to advanced users.
