Accessing NC Public School Student and Teacher Data for Innovative Research
Faculty and researchers are invited to learn more about the expansive longitudinal database maintained by the North Carolina Education Research Data Center (NCERDC), as well as a variety of ways that external administrative or survey data can be integrated with students' education records. The NCERDC, housed in the Duke Center for Child and Family Policy, is a valuable resource for research on public school education across multiple disciplines.
NCERDC Director Kara Bonneau will present an overview of available data and the procedure for submitting data requests and will also answer questions pertaining to data access or availability. Research Scientist Robert Carr of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Julie Edmunds, director of the Early College Research Center at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, will present examples of innovative research using NCERDC data linked to sources such as birth records and postsecondary data from the National Student Clearinghouse.
The workshop, co-sponsored by the Center for Child and Family Policy and the Duke Population Research Institute, will be held at the Sanford Building, Rhodes Conference Room, 201 Science Drive on Duke's West Campus and via Zoom.
Please register to attend in person or via Zoom. A light breakfast will be served for those who attend in person.
