NCES Releases CEDS Version 4
The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) has announce the release of Common Education Data Standards (CEDS) Version 4. CEDS is a national collaborative effort to develop voluntary, common data standards for a key set of education data elements to streamline the exchange, comparison, and understanding of data within and across P-20W institutions and sectors.
The Consoritum for Educational Data Standards (CEDS) User Group will meet and discuss common education data standards at the PESC Spring 2014 Data Summit, Wednesday April 30, 2014 at Public Hotel in Chicago.
The Spring 2014 Data Summit includes PESC's Annual Spring Reception and 16th Annual Membership Meeting and concludes by noon on Friday May 2, 2014.
Progress on the XML data standards for academic ePortfolios took an unexpected turn recently with the sudden, tragic death of one of its primary contributors, Joseph Giroux, in August.
His significant contribution to the work of the Postsecondary Electronic Standards Council (PESC) Academic ePortfolio Workgroup over the past year has allowed the project to move forward towards its goals and objectives.
In a recent update on the status of their schema development work, Don Phillips, Project Director, commented on Joseph's contribution to the project. "Our project would not be where it is today without [Joseph's] dedication, insight, and curiosity."
