This workshop helped guide states into the world of longitudinal data systems (LDS). Participants learned about the Federal objectives, resources, and requirements; shared information about their states’ longitudinal systems; defined their objectives and data elements for an adult education longitudinal data system.
NRS Guide to State Longitudinal Data Systems
This guide is the 12th in a series of guides designed to assist states with implementing NRS requirements, improve data quality, and use NRS data to promote program improvement. This guide is unique among others in the series in its focus on development of LDSs, but it maintains the goal of improving state data quality for NRS reporting. It is designed to support national training on LDSs in adult education, conducted in June and July 2012, and accompanying materials.
