USED creates website to access updated education data

ED Data Express is a Web site designed to improve the public's ability to access and explore high-value state-level education data collected by the U.S. Department of Education.

The site is designed to be interactive and to present the data in a clear, easy-to-use manner, with options to download information into Excel or manipulate the data within the Web site. The site currently includes data from EDFacts, Consolidated State Performance Reports (CSPR), State Accountability Workbooks, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), the National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP), the College Board, and the Department's Budget Service office.

ED Data Express includes three sections that allow users to access and view the data: a State Snapshots page, a Data Element Explorer, and a Build a State Table page.

·        The State Snapshot pages include charts and tables with key data for each state.

·        The Data Element Explorer includes several tools that allow users to interact with all data elements on the site: graphs, tables, maps, trend lines, and conditional analysis.

·        The Build a State Table page allows users to build customized tables by selecting specific data elements and specific states. Clicking on the number, letter or question mark symbol next to a data element in any of these tools will open a footnote for that data element.

In addition to the data viewing tools, the Web site includes links to additional resources, data definitions, and frequently asked questions, all of which provide important context for users.
